Take your family
You may have been putting Morocco off, waiting for a weekend escape from the kids, a romantic anniversary break, or a girly shopping trip. But the minute you walk into the madness of the medina in Marrakech and its circus like ambience, you will vow to come back with the children on a family holiday. Because Morocco, not just the medinas but all of it, is fun. It’s cheeky. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and children love that about it. That and the camel rides in the desert, making camp under the stars with Bedouin tribesmen, sand boarding on Saharan dunes, surfing along Essaouira’s Atlantic coast or hiking and biking their way through the Atlas Mountains. And if all of that leaves those growing, hollow legs quaking for food – no better place to eat well and at very little cost.
