Morocco is just a short three-hour flight from the United Kingdom, but it would be hard to imagine a more different country. From its beautiful beaches to the majestic Atlas Mountains, from its ancient ruins to its modern hotels and bustling cities, Morocco is a country of exoticism and adventure.
There are plenty of flights to Morocco available from UK airports, with planes travelling regularly to airports like Marrakech RAK, Agadir AGA, Casablanca CAS, Fez FEZ and Tangiers TGN. Some of those city names evoke a sense of the exotic straight away and exploring the streets of any these cities is an adventure in itself. Arab and African cultures clash and mingle with exciting results, while there are plenty of souvenirs to find in the markets and bazaars.
For anyone who prefers the peace and tranquillity of the natural world, there are enigmatic desert oases to visit, where local Berber and Saharawi cultures can be explored. The Rif Mountains also offer plenty of opportunities for more adventurous exploration. Local cultures can also be explored in the cities, with the Djema el Fna in Marrakech a town square where traditional storytelling and street performance take place.
A different kind of cultural exploration takes place at the Atlas Film Studios, where decaying film sets can be explored in the desert. Films such as 'Star Wars' and 'The Mummy' are among those which used the facilities here. The fortress at Ait Ben Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in its own right, has also been used as the backdrop to many great films and is well worth a visit.
Anyone who is after a more relaxed kind of holiday can spend hours relaxing on the quality beaches at Agadir and Essaouria. There are also plenty of places to enjoy dining out and nightlife in cities such as Casablanca and Tangiers.
