Morocco is an exotic country in every sense of the word. Markets, spices and unusual customs are everywhere for tourists to admire. A little bit of modern, lots of Islamic traditional, the country is charming in its own way.
One of the most visited cities in Morocco is Marrakesh – the commercial and cultural center of the country. Although not a capital, Marrakesh is the heart of Morocco and bears the true Moroccan spirit.
Some of the places you would want to see in Morocco are:
- Djemaa El Fna – the main square of the major city of Marrakesh.
- City of Fez, often referred to as Morocco’s cultural capital. Also famous for being the world’s largest car-free city
- High Atlas mountains
- Moroccan beaches
Moroccan currency MAD is cheap, 10 MAD are around USD 1, so accommodation and travel will come fairly affordable.
Every visitor to Morocco will have to be extra vigilant, as the country is sadly known for many pick-pockets and fake tour guides, so be cautious!
2018 will be a perfect time to visit one of the most densely populated and most mysterious countries in the world – India. I don’t think I know anyone who has not dreamed f going there, myself included.
For first-timers, India will be a bit overwhelming. The country is vast and there is so much to see that you can exhaust yourself trying to fit it all in one visit. This is why sveyo.com would recommend the ‘golden triangle’ trip, which includes the cities Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. You can visit all three in a 5-day trip and still have time to see most of the landmarks.
Another way to approach your vacation in India is to focus on either southern or northern part of the country. In-country flights in India are plenty and cheap. A whole 5-day vacation with in-country flight transfers, transport from and to India, food, accommodation and guides would amount for ~ USD 2500.
