With coasts on both the Atlantic and Mediterranean Morocco enjoys a beautifully warm year-round climate.The beaches are sandy and the sea is warm.The country is an Islamic Kingdom and, as such, women visitors should dress a little less liberally than would otherwise be appropriate for a Mediterranean climate.The walled medina in Marrakesh is a mazelike medieval quarter where you can buy traditional ceramics jewelry and other interesting artefacts.Each town has its own markets and the shops are always bustling with eager visitors.The foods are wonderfully exotic and there is an abundance of restaurants from which to choose.There are overnight trains between the major cities so you can rest before resuming your holiday at the next exciting destination.
