Morocco's distinctive landscapes and enduring cultural heritage offer an enticing journey into the heart of North Africa. Part of Africa yet markedly different, Morocco is a fascinating study in contrasts. Old world medinas with noisy, narrow, winding lanes vie for attention with fashionable cafés, boutique shops and modern city centers. Sophisticated coastal cities such as Casablanca and Rabat boast an abundance of long white beaches, picturesque rocky coves and classic resorts. The imperial cities of Meknes and Fes showcase fine examples of Islamic architecture and tradition. Inland cities are warm and exotic, set among hills and palm groves. The rugged, snow-capped Atlas Mountains stretch 2414 kilometers/1500 miles through Morocco and beyond. Berber tribes have lived in the region for thousands of years, and were first mentioned in writings of ancient Egyptians. Long-established villages such as Aït-Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, serve as strongholds that preserve the Berber lifestyle, culture, music and art. The country is also rich in Jewish heritage, with the first migration into this area coming after the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem; and a second wave arrived from the Iberian Peninsula in the period immediately preceding and following the 1492 Alhambra Decree, when the Jews were expelled from the kingdoms of Spain and Portugal.

The famous town square of Marrakech, Jemaa l-Fna, owes little of its fame to its own beauty, but to the continuous day and night life. During most of the days, perfomers of every kind put up their shows, continuing until the food stalls start to move in. From the Jemaa there are several entries to the fantastic suuqs, and for anyone who needs to relax for a while, there are plenty of cafés around the Jemaa, where the main attraction is looking at the ongoing activities. Jemaa el-Fna owes most of its fame to the large number of spectacles going on all around all the time. Snake charmers, singers, story tellers, healers and fakirs attract a dominantly Moroccan audience. The food stalls take over the Jemaa as soon as the orange juice sellers have packed up and gone home. The food is prepares from fresh on the spot, and you can choose between fish, meat or vegetable dishes. The concept is easy, you point at everything you desire, indicate the quantity and within few minutes it is there in front of you. The food is exquisite, tasteful and much appreciated by Moroccans and brave tourists. Never forget the good rule of eating in Morocco: eat where the Moroccans eat — they know where to get good food!
