Morocco is a country located in Africa. Rabat is the capital and it is a country known for its rich culture and flavorful old cities. This Morocco travel guide is designed to help you with planning your trip and offering the best advice we can give from our visit.
There is so much to see and do on a visit to Morocco that we would recommend a bare minimum of 2 weeks for a visit. That is how much time we spent and while we did see a lot of the country, our time was rushed.
Take your time in each city, wander the medina, shop the markets, go for a camel safari and just take it all in.
