“Forget Aladin, try Morocco!”

published 27/05/2010

ProGreat food and shopping

ConsPerverts, beggars and forceful vendors

A WHOLE NEW WORLD… I was going through some of my travel pictures with a friend the other day, and that spurred me on to write about my very best travel memories. My trip to Morocco was certainly a memorable one- albeit the fact that I got sunburned, harassed by beggars and street vendors. But I...

ConsThis review is too long!

In Morocco, children speak every language under the sun. I am almost tempted to say that they could probably pick up very quickly any other languages that may be found throughout the galaxy and the entire universe… that is… when it comes to asking for a dirham (Moroccan currency), a dollar, a...

“A Whole New World”

published 02/02/2001

ProA beautiful place, lots of culture, loads of sites

Consnot alot to do for younger people i.e nightlife

I visited Morocco in the Summer of 1999. Its only a short plane journey, only four hours from London.The country was totally different form anything I'd ever seen in my life before. When visting Morroco you truly feel have left Europe, althoough some architecture is similar to that in parts of...

It all started late one night... Because Kathy and I were the last two people to order our tickets from www.travelocity.com, we ended up on a 7:30 AM flight from Heathrow to Madrid. This necessitated catching a 4 am bus from Oxford. So, not having slept a wink, Katherine and I met at the Oxford...

ProThe people

ConsThe heat

Nearly ten years ago I decided to do a spot of Eurailing, and ended up in Morocco.I found Morocco very entertaining, even though I arrived there with a serious case of sunburn from lazing around on Gibraltar, and instantly developed the screaming abdabs as soon I set foot on African soil, I...

I went backpacking in June 2007 with a freind and the first place we started was in Morocco, which is in North Africa and it very different to anywhere else I visited on the trip. Every city had something unique about it and the people changed alot between each city. For example In Cassablance...

Consnone

My first trip to Marrakech was less than a year after 9/11. It took two hours to muster enough courage to leave my riad by myself that first morning due to all the terrifying thoughts rolling around in my head. When I travel in Europe, I blend in. I stood out in Morocco, which made me feel like a...

ProSuch a variety of different cultures and scenary. ...

ConsSnakes, cockroaches, beggars.

I felt almost dizzy in the sunshine, disorientated, excited and a little scared. Everything was so different, my senses were almost over powered with new sounds, sights and smells. For this was Morocco a land of contradictions and I was quite alone. I made my way slowly across the square to find...

Satisfactory

ProVery cheap accommodation and food.

ConsConstant harassment.

Although I'm sure that for many people Morocco can be a marvellous experience, I'm afraid my stay there was disappointing, not to mention a little scary. I'd been backpacking on my own throughout Western Europe and enjoying myself immensely, when I decided on a whim to take a ferry from Algeciras...

“Magical Morocco”

published 25/09/2000

ProClose to Europe but a different world

ConsNone really

Asalaam alaykum! Peace be with you. Welcome to Morocco. Only four hours flying time from London, you can enter a magical and completely different world. From the ancient cities and kasbahs of Meknes, Fes and Marrakech, to the stunningly beautiful Atlas Mountains and the baking but equally...

ProLots to see and do

ConsFood can be a bit suspect

In '98, I went on what was billed a Morocco mystery tour which was organised by Escape from Samsara, a club in Brixton. The name was certainly apt as you did not know what was around the corner. From the Andalucian like medina of Chefchaouen, to the ramparts of Essaouira, to the desert sands of...

As a seasoned independant traveller I booked up a short holiday to Morrocco on my own feeling i needed a few days of R&R and a break from the winter gloom. Landing in Marrakesh is an assualt on the senses with throngs of people making noise, strong smells of food everywhere and a vibrant array of...

“making marks in Morocco”

published 15/09/2007

ProGreat great experience--we recommend!

Cons~*~

I'm back after a while and I've decided to review dear morocco this time because, well, it simply is just lovely. So it's located North Africa. Can't say much of the trip though because I was sick part of the time (just some minor allergy). But it all faded once we began for that peaceful desert...
