The colours, sights and sounds of Morocco will make your senses explode. Walk above the snowline of magnificent mountains, admire Moorish architecture, meander through the mazes of medinas (old walled towns) before bartering in the colourful stalls. Then relax with a mint tea and a steam bath. Morocco offers a colourful combination of ancient cities, unspoilt coasts and awe–inspiring rocky highlands. There are vibrant open-air markets selling rugs, leather goods, brassware and much more. Rabat, the capital, dates from the 12th century. Fes is a city of crumbling grandeur and striking buildings. Casablanca is immortalised by Hollywood and is a lively seaside metropolis. Marrakech is ribboned by intriguing alleyways and famed for its huge market square. It makes an atmospheric starting point for treks in the High Atlas Mountains nearby. From the port town of Laayoune in the Western Sahara to the northern splendour of Tanger, perched between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco is waiting to be discovered.
