Scott's Tour of Magical Morocco

Just a few hours flight from the UK, Morocco is at the crossroads of Europe and Africa. Morocco is a country rich in contrasts - from the historical imperial cities of Casablanca, Rabat, Fez and Marrakech to the geographic extremes of the Atlas Mountains, the Sahara Desert and the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines.  Discover the intensity of bustling souks and maze-like medinas, alongside the vastness of the pre-Sahara and remote Berber mountain villages. A melting pot of Berber, Arab, African and European cultures, it’s hard to believe that Morocco is within such easy reach of Europe.

Here’s what Scott, Llama Travel Product Manager, saw during his time in Morocco all the photos in this blog are his own.

Bahia Palace Marrakech

The 19th century Bahia Palace, one of Marrakech's most beautiful sights. 

Despite being just over a 3-hour flight from London, a trip to Morocco is like stepping into a different world. One of the highlights of my trip to Morocco was exploring the labyrinth like streets of the souks in both Marrakesh and Fes, where it felt like I had journeyed hundreds of years back in time.
