Excellent travel destinations
Morocco. This is a beautiful African country in the outskirts of Europe. Morocco is rich in North African culture. One of the attractions is the Djemma el Fna in Marrakech. It is a hotspot in the country. It opens around 10 a.m. with tattoo artists, snake charmers, street theatres, and at evening, chefs, food masters, and restaurants serve some of the best delicacies both local and foreign. There is also the Berber tour. This is where you experience Moroccan nomadic life firsthand. The trip can range from a single day to a 16-day tour.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ait Benhaddou, showcases traditional pre-Saharan life. The houses are built within the walls and in addition, they are reinforced with corner towers. This is an example of how ancient societies operated before the advent of skyscrapers. Lastly, it will be a good idea to attend the terrific Fes Festival.

Zanzibar. Pemba Island is about 100 km outside Zanzibar. It is filled with amazing coral reefs, lagoons, mangroves, and fish. It is the perfect setting for divers and beach lovers. Because of its green natural vegetation, it is nicknamed ”the Green Island”. This island is only a 30-minutes flight from Stone Town airport, Zanzibar. It has been, historically, a major spice producer and it is still so today. However, the economy depends more on agriculture than tourism. It is less congested than Zanzibar making it a haven for those who prefer holidays in a quiet and rural setting. This is the best location for a real island holiday.
