    #1. The Famous Ait-Ben-Haddou, a Fortified Town on the Edge of the Sahara Desert

    This bundle of earthen buildings protected by high surrounding walls is an ideal example of southern Moroccan architecture. The traditional pre-Saharan group of dwellings, known as the ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

    A tajine is a traditional Berber dish named after the tajine (often spelled tagine) earthenware pot in which it is made. These slow-cooked stews, including meat, poultry or fish combined with dried fruit, vegetables and spices, are a must-try on your visit to Morocco.

    #3.  An Unbeatable Sunset in Agadir

    Agadir’s breathtaking location at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean coupled with a bustling beach scene, buzzing port and enchanting town make it the leading seaside resort town in the country. The area also boasts 300 days of sunshine a year, which certainly sweetens the pot.

    The Jemaa el-Fnaa is one of Morocco’s most lively squares and marketplaces. The square is in Marrakech’s medina, or “old town,” and is frequented by locals and tourists for delicious street foods, performances, traditional medicines and people watching.

    #5. Traditional Handmade Leather Moroccan Souvenirs

    Morocco is known for its leather souvenirs and even custom-made leather goods. Moroccan leather is soft and pliable, which makes it ideal for creating items like bags, wallets, gloves and shoes.

    #6. Camping with Camels in the Sahara Desert

    Many travelers visit Morocco to see the mesmerizing Sahara desert, and one way of doing that is on a camel trek or tour. Treks offer a unique desert experience often including an overnight stay, or even multiple-night stay, in a desert camp.
