A land of laid-back seaside resorts, endless desert dunes, vibrant cities and bustling bazaars, Morocco is a must-see stop on the map of any self-respecting modern traveller.

"The heady exoticism of Morocco will overload your senses with its kaleidoscope of colours, patterns and aromas – all palpable as soon as you step off the plane."

Marrakech’s magical location, set at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, and the atmosphere of the city’s pulsating medina makes this an enchanting destination. Among its ancient medina walls you’ll find not only stalls selling gorgeous antique rugs and beautifully-ornate silverware, but also boutique spas that offer the last word in authentic, yet super-luxurious hammam treatments.

And rubbing shoulders with the energy and action of the city, you’re guaranteed to find fabulously-appointed hotels providing the perfect escape from it all. Enjoy a snippet of everyday Moroccan life with a tour to the rural markets, with their vegetables and portable steam baths and take a drive through fields of olive groves to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains for a fascinating visit to the remote Berber villages.
