A bucketlist country of mine is definitely Morocco. The gateway to Africa, and one whose culture emanates all over the world including in the small country of Brunei. Even tile art from Morocco dot our mosques and palaces – only heightening my desires to visit!
However, I always thought going to Morocco is somewhat out of reach. It’s super far away and thus expensive – and in fact I already have another holiday planned for January 2019 – even pitched for some sponsorships!
But, alhamdullilah this year rezeki to go to Morocco because lo and behold for some fluke I found Saudia Airlines offering cheap fare from Kuala Lumpur to Casablanca for only GBP374!
I didn’t think much – quickly found travel buddies (not easy) – bought the tickets for approximately 10 days in Morocco and thus began my fumbling around in the darkness looking for information.
In hindsight, I should’ve booked a longer trip – considering the journey to Casablanca took 20++ hours and this country is simply an incredible place..
Unlike more countries I’ve visited there is really limited information about Morocco online. I find this very strange, considering it is a really popular country to visit! Furthermore the more I researched the more I thought how insufficient 10 days was! In the end after reading several resources, we settled on the following destinations:
- Casablanca (of course since we are landing there)
- Off to Chefchaouen immediately by Minivan
- Back to Fes by Bus
- Fes to Marrakech by Train
- Essaouira day trip from Marrakech by bus
- Back to Casablanca
Of course once we arrived in Morocco, all the plans sort of changed and we ended up with this new itinerary!Continue reading →
