This is a collection of pictures from Morocco, the result of a day trip to the port city of Tangier in the north. So far.
If you look up my articles from Morocco, you will also find a video and a regular travelogue. Before you do, start with these pictures from Morocco.
Afterwards, find all photo galleries on Sandalsand.
Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is an excerpt:
Morocco, officially the Kingdom of Morocco, is the northwesternmost country in the Maghreb region of North Africa. It overlooks the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and has land borders with Algeria to the east, and the disputed territory of Western Sahara to the south.
It spans an area of 446,300 km2 or 710,850 km2, with a population of roughly 37 million. Its official and predominant religion is Islam, and the official languages are Arabic and Berber; the Moroccan dialect of Arabic and French are also widely spoken. Moroccan identity and culture is a vibrant mix of Berber, Arab, and European cultures. Its capital is Rabat, while its largest city is Casablanca.
Tourism is increasingly focused on Morocco’s culture, such as its ancient cities. The modern tourist industry capitalises on Morocco’s ancient Berber, Roman and Islamic sites, and on its landscape and cultural history. Agadir is a major coastal resort. It is a base for tours to the Atlas Mountains. Other resorts in north Morocco are also very popular.
Casablanca is the major cruise port in Morocco, and has the best developed market for tourists in Morocco. Marrakech in central Morocco is a popular tourist destination, but is more popular among tourists for one- and two-day excursions that provide a taste of Morocco’s history and culture.
Activity and adventure tourism in the Atlas and Rif Mountains are the fastest growth area in Moroccan tourism. The government is investing in trekking circuits. They are also developing desert tourism in competition with Tunisia.
