My time in Morocco was nothing short of an amazing and great adventure. The beautiful architecture and colorful tiles. The vibrant souks. The delicious food, full of spices. And of course, who can forget the copious amounts of Moroccan mint tea.

We started our 10 day journey when we landed in Casablanca. We immediately jumped aboard a train and travelled to the cultural city of Fes. The busy streets, hidden alleys and unique culture gave us the first taste of Morocco. Our home for 3 nights was the lively and affordable Riad Verus Fes. It was a full day of exploring in Fes before heading out on a day trip to Chefchaouen.
It was a picture brought to life as we first laid eyes on Morocco’s Blue Pearl. The city provided a brief respite from our hectic travels and vibes of Fes. The next day, we boarded a short flight to Marrakech, where we stayed at the charming and private Riad Vert. It was gardens, mosques and palaces galore, with plenty of eating and a spot of shopping thrown in.
It was 2 nights in Marrakech before we drove out to the Agafay desert bright and early! Scarabeo Camp is an instagrammer’s dream with their big and luxurious white tents, amazing scenery and delicious food. We were never bored with camel rides and ATV journeys in the desert.
Riad Dar Attika welcomed us from the desert as we returned to the city. One more stunning sunset before we ended our epic travels in Casablanca. Thank you, magical Morocco, for welcoming us with open arms. Till we meet again because we are definitely coming back!
Here’s a spot of inspiration to push you to start your travels in Morocco!
Where to Stay in Morocco
Fes: Riad Verus – Great hostel that’s value for money. The selling point of this riad is its courtyard where guests will mingle and have amazing breakfasts. Book your stay here to make new friends and for an affordable night’s stay.
Chefchaouen: Dar Baibou – Traditional rooms with beautiful tile décor. Take this chance to go for a hammam or soak in the sun (and views) on their rooftop terrace! A wonderful place for you to start exploring the blue-hued city of Chefchaouen.
Marrakech: Riad Vert – This quiet riad provides plenty of space for you to get a good night’s rest, away from the hustle and bustle of Jemaa El Fnaa. The rooms are big and the common spaces are well-decorated to give you the feeling of staying in a Moroccan home.
Riad Dar Attika – Quaint riad with charming rooms. Have a home-cooked breakfast before heading out to tackle the city. Located within walking distance to Badi Palace, Bahia Palace, the Jewish Quarter and other amazing sights!
Scarabeo Camp: The luxury Agafay Desert camp of Instagram fame. Escape Marrakech to this nearby stone camp and enjoy your night sleeping under the stars! Read my review of our stay at Scarabeo here.
Casablanca: Movenpick Hotel Casablanca – Modern hotel with a touch of Moroccan design. Take in the views by requesting for a room on the higher floors. The hotel is located in a central location with all the facilities you could need.
