Best Sights And Activities In Morocco

Being a tourist in Morocco, whether it’s the first time or not, makes it very difficult to organize an itinerary because of the countless things to do and sights to see. This North African country is truly an eclectic tourist destination that will not run out of things to offer regardless of what kind of traveler one is because of the huge range of options that can be chosen. 

One spot to visit in Morocco is called Tanneries in Fez and it is greatly known because of their abundance in leather products that are mostly from bazaars found in old medina. The most fascinating about the tanneries in Morocco is that they have been selling their goods since the medieval times, but they haven’t changed a bit. This place also offers a great view once the tourists head to the courtyard of Chaouwara Tannery because it is elevated from the other tanneries, giving tourists a different view of the sunshine and the colorfully dyed skins that are displayed to dry out under the sun.

If tourists want to experience walking along streets that are predominantly blue in color, they should head out to the Streets of Chefchaouen which is located at a place in Morocco called Rif Mountains. This town is actually a pretty good chance to take a breather and slow things down when the schedule of going around gets a little too hectic because a lot of people describe this town as the “sleepy town.” This place was built around the 15th century and has since then been the solace and refuge of Muslim and Jew brothers during the Spanish reconquest. What tourists really love about the Rif Mountains is that it has a bohemian vibe, along with the beautiful streets lined with cobblestones; the buildings are also amazingly painted with various hues of the color blue. This is definitely one of the attractions where people can immerse themselves and learn more about the culture. 

For tourists who are looking to do something unique in their trip to Morocco, it’s probably not a bad idea to consider learning how to cook the way they do it there in Morocco. People all over the world are pretty familiar with how Moroccan cuisine is famous for infusing different spices into the food that they cook, but the secret is really in the unique methods they use to prepare and cook the ingredients that they have. The uniqueness of the Moroccan cooking method is because of the combination of various influences such as French, Andalusians, Arabs, and Berbers. A lot of the guest houses offer these cooking lessons which means it’s not gonna be difficult for tourists to find and sign up for them. The best cooking lessons are the ones that will allow tourists to experience buying fresh ingredients in the market before actually cooking them. The highlight of this experience is being able to taste one’s own cooking and finally confirm all the techniques that were taught during the class.

With all the amazing things to do and see in Morocco, it’s not a surprise for people to always include this in their list.…
