Morocco is quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought-after tourist destinations. From Casablanca through Rabat and to Tangier at the tip of the continent; from the infinite blue labyrinth streets of Chefchaouen, and down to Fez, and still further south to the ever-spreading dunes of Erg Chebbi in the Sahara Desert; over to Marrakesh, and the laid-back coastal town of Essaouira, Morocco has an abundance of important natural and historical assets, not to mention a rich and diverse cultural heritage.
