||More on Morocco
Still firmly attached to it's Islamic roots, Morocco is a fascinating
and rewarding experience for the visitor who is willing to venture
further than the beach resorts.
It is worth bearing in mind that in the hotels there's no shortage of
luxury compared to the simple means by which the locals live. Therefore
begging is not uncommon on the streets of the cities and how you deal
with this is down to your own conscience.
Do not however, let it put you off Morocco whose people have been
welcoming visitors for thousands of years.

|When planning an excursion during the summer months always bear in
mind that the climate can vary dramatically, for example; in July the
average temperature around the coastal resorts is 28C whereas inland at
say, Marrakesh the mercury soars to 38C.
- Fes remains a thriving ancient city where time
has virtually stood still. The focal point is the medina, a living,
working walled city-within-a-city that is still home to thousands of
Moroccans. Though tourists are becoming a more regular sight it can
still be a rather intimidating place so unless you want
independence, stick with an official guide who will escort any size
party around the palaces, gardens and mosques.
- Marrakesh offers a glimpse of a big city
Morocco-style, which has evolved and yet retained its mystical
charm. Still a meeting place for tribesmen and travelers the city is
a fascinating place to absorb the sights, sounds and smells of a
thriving way of life.
- If Casablanca evokes romantic thoughts of the
movie of the same name, think again because Humphrey Bogart and
Ingrid Bergman's fling was filmed entirely in Hollywood. There is
very little to interest tourists in this business-like city.
- Remote mountain villages like Chaouen have been
popular with day trippers for a number of years and locals no longer
stop and stare at visitors. Instead they have embraced tourism
almost as much as the major resorts and visitors are well catered
for. It is still possible however to see the contradictions in their
way of life; for example women will still do the weekly washing in
the nearby river using popular brands of soap powder!
- Golfers will find two excellent courses around Agadir,
one at Tangier and others at Casablanca,
Fes and Marrakesh.
- Hiking through the mountains is growing in popularity and requires
- Opportunities for those seeking natural history are plentiful. One
sight which always enthralls visitors occurs just before sundown in Fes
when the skies become thick with swarms of birds (swift),
while storks settle for the night in their nests along the medina
