Do you fancy travelling to a desert that provides you the most colorful views you have ever seen? Plan a trip to Morocco, the most beautiful and most heartwarming place in Africa. Here are some of the most amazing things that you could do while in Morocco.

Go to Marrakesh

Everyone who comes to Morocco spends some time in Marrakesh, not because it is a popular destination but because it has a lot to offer. If you only have one weekend to spare in the desert, Marrakesh should be the place where you should go. The Djemaa el-Fina is one of the most happening places in the city. Here, you will find several tattoo artists, chefs, musicians and street performers as well.

The exotic arts and food of the place will definitely mesmerize you. It is a visually enchanting experience that you will love to experience again and again. You can enjoy the charm of the old city and when you are tired, you can always come back to the lap of the international city.

Go camping in the Sahara

The Moroccan side of the Sahara is beautiful with its several dunes and a vast emptiness that cannot be found anywhere else. The vastness of this space is what makes it so captivating. You can go camping here in the desert. The camps are simple but you get an eyeful of the Moroccan sky laden with glimmering stars millions of miles away in another galaxy. There is no light or noise pollution to block your experience of the desert. Sleeping on a starlit night like this could be difficult. After all, you would want to soak in the moonlight while it lasts.


Located in the middle of Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a place that offers a relaxed, calming experience to the travelers. The place is as vibrant as the streets of Marrakesh but offers you a very laidback atmosphere. The sky is at its most beautiful blue and the mountains that you see behind are picture perfect. You can enjoy some coffee or tea in the local restaurants or buy souvenirs too.


The city is old and it provides you the most authentic Moroccan experience too. It has very narrow streets that are crammed full of several vendors selling spices, aromatic herbs, perfumes and handicrafts. The streets always remain crowded and there are several mosques and craft shops lining this region. Don’t expect to find an American style coffee shop nearby. This is a place where you get to see the nation’s true self in its full glory and it could easily overwhelm your senses.

While you are in Morocco, don’t forget to take a bath in the hammam. The magnificently decorate hammam public baths are an experience to remember.

These were some exotic Moroccan experiences that you will love to relive throughout your life. Enjoy the deliciously different food that the cities have to offer. Don’t forget to pack spices and souvenirs on your way back home.
