Morocco’s Blue City

In northern Morocco, Chefchaouen is one of the country’s prettiest towns, renowned for its blue-white washed stone walls and cobblestone streets. The medina is small and uncrowded compared to the hustle and bustle of Fés and Marrakech, making it a joy to explore. In the centre of town is the picturesque Uta El Hammam Plaza shadowed by the red-hued Kasbah, an ancient walled fortress that contains a lovely garden and fascinating ethnographic museum. The beautifully decorated Riad Cherifa sits overlooking the town, a mere 600 metres from the ancient Kasbah.

Morocco Overview

Why travel to Morocco?
Whether you are looking for history, exotic cultures or stunning scenery, Morocco has it all in spades. Style gurus will swoon over the beautifully restored riads and chic boutique hotels, whilst gourmets can enjoy the wonderful fusion of African and Arabic cuisine. For the adventurous there is also hiking or safaris into wild and remote mountains.

What is the culture of Morocco?
Predominantly Arabic, Morocco has a long and complex history and is a melting pot of different cultures and religions. It has a long tradition of tolerance, with hospitality an ingrained part of the culture. Apart from the mosques, most public monuments are open to the general public. For those who like to shop, souks are a way of life in Morocco and you usually won’t have to go far to find one.

What is the climate in Morocco?
Morocco’s climate is generally moderate and subtropical, cooled by sea breezes. In the interior the temperatures are more extreme, with cold winters and very hot summers. Marrakech has an average winter temperature of 21°C and summer temperature of 38°C. Mid-summer can be very hot, particularly inland. The best time to visit is spring (mid-March to May) when the country is lush and green, or autumn (Sep to Nov) when the summer heat has eased. During Ramadan most shops and restaurants are closed during the day..

What can I combine Morocco with?
Morocco can be combined with a holiday to Egypt and the Middle East or a safari in East Africa. Being just a couple of hours’ flight from Europe, it can easily be combined with a European holiday, and Spain in particular has many cultural and historic links with Morocco.

How to get to Morocco?
Morocco is served by many major European and Middle Eastern airlines. Australian travellers can fly with Emirates via Dubai to Casablanca.
