Casablanca

If you’ve seen the movie
Casablanca – that’s already reason enough to visit Morocco. It hardly matters

real-life Casablanca is way more interesting and beautiful looking than what
they built for the movie. This city has a very unique mix of modern
contemporary architecture and a typically French feel to it at the same time.
It’s definitely a must-see. Imagine how many references you can make while in
Casablanca.

Cats

Morocco is full of cats. A lot of them just live on the street but the locals feed them and generally take good care of them. It’s just a way of life over there. These cats just walk the streets, eat when they’re hungry, hunt when they want, lounge in the sun most of the time and get lots of attention in forms of petting and ear scratching from passers-by. So if you love cats and want to be surrounded by them – go to Morocco.
