Areas Visited: Marrakech, Atlas Mountains. (2007)

Morocco is an exotic country with both sights and smells to overwhelm your senses. Although Islamic, it's good to keep in mind that it's North African and not Arab. The country is welcoming and tolerant of tourists, although it's necessary to dress conservatively and be respectful of the local culture and customs. And although I visited Morocco as part of a package hiking trip, I believe Morocco would be easy to visit independently.

The country can be very hot, but not humid.

I recommend visiting Morocco for its colorful markets and the beautiful sights in the Atlas mountains.
