6 Amazing Reasons that make Morocco one of your favourite places for a honeymoon tour
Amazing kindness and hospitable locals
In Morocco, I can’t feel the hospitality and kindness that I found in countries like Bhutan and Cambodia that I visited a long time ago. Concerning Morocco and despite being a North African country, there is a subtle European dominance over culture and society there.
Despite that, I admit that the kindness and friendliness that I find here are rather admirable according to my experience when I dealt with our hospitable hotel staff and cosy, well-mannered locals. I was extremely comfortable.
The main and crucial barrier is only the language that they speak mostly 3 languages: French, Spanish and Arabic. Other than this obstacle, you will be impressed by the kindness, friendliness and hospitality of the hotel staff that all along our tour they assured us that we are relaxed.
Fascinating Shopping Experience:
What makes our shopping experience in Morocco a captivating one is the richness of markets, diversity of objects and gifts that you can purchase from there. If you are interested in genuine carpets, silks, jewellery, spices and artisan then Fes is your choice. It is where you can find a vast range of these objects. On the other hand, if you are interested in gifts like magnets, sets of keys, with a very suitable expenses, then Marrakesh is your favourite place to go to. Finally, if you are a lover of original fragrances, perfumes and beautiful aroma then go and visit Essaouira.
Amazing Construction and Design
Morocco is famous for its Atlas mountains, Sahara Desert, Medieval souks and contemporary tall buildings. We were very thrilled to discover the tradition and history of this country that was surrounded by the old constructions of Rabat, blue-painted streets at Chechaouen and a view of amazing souks at Fes. So, we ended up understanding that there are a lot to do in Morocco other than shopping. One of these things is to discover these amazing souks.
Engage in a cooking class in Morocco
Being left completely astonished by the designs and constructions in Morocco, there was something exceptional we want to discover which is being engaged in a cooking class in Morocco after a prolonged and calm ride to Marrakech.
We indulged into a new experience which is to cook ourselves Moroccan food using genuine components from Morocco such as Tagine.
Travelling by a Hot Air Balloon
It seems that our exceptional adventures in Morocco will not finish. After taking a cooking class at Marrakech, we went for another exciting experience early at Essaouira which is to drive in a hot air balloon. We had a lot of fun enjoying love and romance especially with the beautiful sight of the Atlas mountains. After that, we went for a tour to the Argan oil factory where we discover the procedures of purifying the Argan oil for beauty products and for cooking.
Amazement for the Game of Thrones Admirers
Being a passionate lover of Game of Thrones, I was so excited to live the story of the TV. Series in reality and to sense the same feelings. When we saw the memorial where the ” Astapor” episode was acted, we can’t describe the excitement and thrill that we feel especially when we know about the backstage tale.
Advises for Honeymooners who plan to visit Morocco
You are advised to carry water with you while walking out in order to keep yourself moistened because there is no water affordable in the streets. Giving extra money as a tip is a protocol in this country, so assure that you give a tip to a bell boy, a waiter in a restaurant.
Please bring some heavy clothes with you in addition to electric sockets because the temperature changes quickly here. Don’t dress short and tight clothes because the community is a mixture of both African and Arab origins despite its dominant European culture.

Popular questions that visitors have while plotting a trip to Morocco:
During our residence in Africa, we came to a conclusion that these convictions about Africa as being undesired location for tourists because of security causes have proved to be wrong. The one and only difficulty is language because there are 3 languages that are predominantly spoken which are “Spanish, French and Arabic”. It is difficult for English speaking visitors to communicate because of this reason. But don’t panic. Locals will help you. We advise you to go to Marrakech , Casablanca because they are more international and broad-minded than other cities.
