Have You Been to Morocco?


I am considering spending a week in Morocco in August.
I need your help.
Marrakech? Fez? Rabat? Which is your favorite?
Should I spend a week in one place or should I travel to different cities?
Marrakech seems much cheaper than Fez. Could I spend a whole week there?
Should I take a desert/camel trek? Do you have a recommendation for one?
Where to stay? What to do?
Any bloggers want to come with me? 

Advice greatly appreciated.

I have not been but it's on my list of places that I desperately want to visit. If I could even possibly afford it and could get the time off of work I'd seriously join you! :)

I want to go to Morocco so bad! Jealous!I think you should do a little bit of everything if your budget and time allows it.

Sounds like it'd be amazing! Never been, but I've heard some great things about Merrakach :)

Jenna said...

Gah! I want to come so bad - I told my boyfriend about it the other day and have since probably brought it up another three or four times, ha! Who knows maybe by august I'll get a more flexible, work from home job and hop on a plane and come :)

I've never been, but have heard so many great things about all the places you listed above.

You should definitely go! I would say to cross Rabat off of the list, it does not have as much to offer as Fes and Marrakesh, in my opinion. You might want to try a combo trip; numerous travel companies will allow you spend half time in Marrakesh/other half in the desert; or half Marrakesh/ half Essaioura, which is a cool hippie beach town about a two hour bus ride from Marrakesh. Or half Fes/half Chefchaouen, which is a beautiful mountain town a few hours ride from Fes. Whatever you decide, GO! I spent 6 months there and they were fantastic.

My best friend here is htere now and although her trip is just beginning, I've heard nothing but wonderful things!! You should definitely go!

I have been to Morocco and I loved it! We stayed a couple of days in Marrakesh and then caught the bus to spent 3 days in pretty Essaouira! You should definitely go! Photographers heaven! :)
Oh and I just saw that you live in Frankfurt - my hometown! Hope you are enjoying your time, I dearly miss it... but living in Australia has some positive sides as well.. :)
