Salam, curious wanderers! Are you yearning for an exotic escape that goes beyond the typical tourist trail? Join me on a virtual magic carpet ride to a land where vibrant markets come alive with a myriad of colors, scents, and sounds, and the landscapes will leave you breathless. Welcome to the unseen corners of enchanting Morocco!

Fes – A Labyrinth of Fascination

Stepping into Fes feels like traveling back in time. Wander around the oldest part of the city, Fes el Bali, with its maze-like streets brimming with hidden gems. Seek out the lesser-known tanneries, where traditional methods are used to dye leather goods – an unforgettable sight (and smell)!

The Blue Bliss of Chefchaouen

Tucked in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a world awash in hues of blue. This relatively unknown city is a calming contrast to Morocco’s bustling metropolises. Stroll the blue-washed streets, visit the vibrant local market and pick up some delicious goat cheese – a regional specialty!

The Secret Sands of Merzouga

If you’re after an otherworldly experience, look no further than the Sahara desert near Merzouga. This place might not be on everyone’s radar, but it’s a must for intrepid travelers. Embark on a camel trek at dusk, witness the golden sand dunes shimmering under the setting sun, and spend a starlit night in a desert camp.

The Tranquil Oasis of Skoura

Step off the beaten track and into the palm groves of Skoura, a verdant oasis in the midst of arid landscapes. Explore the ancient Kasbahs and enjoy the serenity far from the tourist crowds. The local market here is also a treasure trove for dates, olives, and handwoven Berber carpets.

The Rustic Charm of Moulay Idriss

This little town is one of Morocco’s best-kept secrets. Visit Moulay Idriss for its charming white and green buildings, grand mausoleum, and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Don’t forget to sample the town’s signature dish, b’stilla – a sweet and savory pie that will have your taste buds tingling.

The Surf and Sun of Taghazout

Trade the bustle of Agadir for the laid-back vibes of Taghazout, a haven for surfers and sun seekers alike. This once sleepy fishing village offers epic waves, endless sunshine, and a burgeoning food scene.

The Smoky Mountains of Imlil

Nestled in the High Atlas Mountains, Imlil offers refreshing mountain air and stunning trekking routes. For a taste of Berber hospitality, try a traditional tajine in a local family’s home.


Whether it’s through the blue streets of Chefchaouen, the shifting sands of Merzouga, or the hustle and bustle of a lesser-known medina, discovering the unseen sides of Morocco promises a unique and captivating experience.

So, until our next adventure, ma’a salama, fellow explorers!
