Must-sees in Morocco

  • Marrakech
  • Made famous by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, who bought and lived in the Majorelle Garden, Marrakech is perhaps one of the better-known cities for travellers wishing to explore the heritage and culture of Morocco. The town square Jemaa el-Fnaa is a must for traditional architecture, shopping and food. .
  • The Atlas Mountains
  • Acting as a natural barrier between the northern plains of Morocco and the pre-Sahara, the Atlas Mountains have become incredible popular for visitors keen on exploring a vast natural landscape. From novice to expert, this vast mountain range offers some of the best hiking and nature trails in northern Africa.
  • Tangier
  • Sun see and surf abound at the many seaside resorts that have become popular for travellers to Morocco. Known as Europe’s gateway to Africa, this city with a seedy past has since blossomed into a bustling and prosperous region ripe for exploration.

A deep dive on Moroccan dirhams

Before modern currency came into effect in 1882, Morocco made use of bronze, silver and gold coins with which to trade. During a period under French rule between 1921 and 1960, the dirham was replaced with the Moroccan franc. In 1977, new look dirhams were printed and entered circulation, essentially replacing the currency.
