Morocco, The Gateway to Africa | The Travel Intern
Think sahara desert, camping under the stars, getting blue in the city of Chefchaouen (issa pun, geddit?), ahhhhh… One of the perfect introductions to Africa. Here is our guide to Morocco!

Check out our budget itinerary here:

00:34 – Hassan II Mosque
The largest mosque in Africa! Here, you can go on guided tours to understand the craftsmanship that went behind building this beauty!

00:51 – Plage Lalla Meryem
We loved spending the afternoon in this public beach. You get to see the colourful culture of the locals here!

01:01 – Bahia Palace
Take a relaxing stroll through this 19th Century palace!

01:14 – Koutoubia Mosque
The largest mosque in Marakech, with its iconic landmark standing at 77m tall!

01:22 – Moroccan Souks
Souks are like marketplaces where you get to window shop along the streets housing the shops.

01:28 – Jemaa El-Fna
Catch the beautiful sunset overlooking Jemaa El-Fna, and then head down to the square to enjoy a night out eating, catching performances and just soaking in the atmosphere~

Check out this village made entirely of mud bricks. This place is a popular filming location! Movies like The Mummy, Gladiator, Game of Thrones were filmed here~

Live like a local! Spend some time here chilling by the streams, you can even do as they do — set up a cozy weekend picnic!

We feel that a trip to Morocco HAS TO (!!!!!) include a trip to the Sahara Desert, the biggest desert in the world! Get to experience riding on a camel and camping in a million-star hotel (Get it???? Sky full of millions of stars~)

02:30 – Blue Gate
The iconic landmark of Fes.

02:35 – Chouara Tannery
The medina’s oldest tannery, just follow the donkeys or your noses, and you’ll get to see what goes on in a tannery!

02:46 – Medinas
These winding alleys are for explorers to get lost in….. In a good way, of course! Have a look through the colourful alleys!

The blue city of Morocco! How can we miss this? Get ready your cameras because there are photo opportunities everywhere.

03:14 – Hassan Tower
Have you ever seen an incomplete building? Well, the Hassan Tower is famous for being half-built!

03:18 – Mausoleum of Mohammed V
After visiting the Hassan Tower, head on to the opposite side of the street to visit the Mausoleum of Mohammed V!

Here’s your gateway to Africa! What are you waiting for????? 😀
