Countries don’t get much more photogenic than Morocco, with chaotic cities vying with serene sand dunes for the perfect photo opportunity. Holiday Hypermarket select ten breathtaking images that sum up its diverse beauty…
Morocco is an intriguing country that is shrouded in mystery and wonder. By daylight, the bustling souk markets bring a kaleidoscope of colours to the eye, from the reds and oranges of aromatic spices to golds and bronzes that shimmer in the sunlight and fabrics of all hues. The capital city of Marrakech is nicknamed the ‘Red City’ and it is easy to see why as you stare at the dusky red walls that form the city’s labyrinth of streets.
Marrakech really comes alive at night, when the centre transforms into a magical spectacle. Snake charmers hypnotise visitors to the soundtrack of traditional Berber instruments and passers-by are sure to be entranced by the rhythmic movement of belly dancers and fire breathers. Escape the city and you will find even more visual delights in Morocco.
The country is home to parts of the Merzouga and Sahara deserts, as well as the extraordinary Atlas Mountains. Your options here are endless. Why not try hiking up to the peaks or kayaking through the gorges of the mountain range? Camel trekking is a way to venture through the desert as the locals do and the alluring beaches are also home to a camel or two.
Morocco is a wonderful spot for holidays and provides unforgettable memories at a low cost. These breath-taking photos show the beauty of Morocco within the cities and also as you venture out to the diverse landscapes encompassing these cultural hubs.
