These 20 photos to inspire you to visit Morocco are a slice of what to expect while visiting. It’s a vibrant culture and undoubtedly one of my favorites countries I have visited to date. Morocco’s wide range of experiences, from the bustling streets of Marrakech to the never-ending plains of the Sahara Desert, are what make the destination diverse.
Culturally, the rich traditions and history engrained in what you see today is incredible. The streets are constantly changing in landscape with new vendors and street carts stacked high with fresh produce, all the while, bikes whizzing by you. It is often a sensory overload to say the least. Last year, I spent three weeks exploring multiple destinations. I came home with not only souvenirs like the Moroccan rug or blanket, but also a new found perspective on travel.
Slow could be the best way to describe Morocco. Most don’t realize just how long it will take to get from one destination to the next in Morocco. Whether it’s the long drive to the Sahara or the favorited overnight train from Marrakech to Tangier, the journey is part of the experience. For those who love a road trip, Morocco couldn’t be a better place to start.
What I adored about Morocco was the surprises I found along the way. Like did you know that English and Arabic are widely spoken, but many regions also speak French and Spanish? Or even though it is in Northern Africa, it feels more Middle Eastern? Or that mint tea served hot is a way of welcoming guests? There’s so much to discover.
If you’re considering a trip to Morocco, I hope these photos will ignite an inspiration for your trip. If you’re not considering, than I also hope that these photos will put Morocco on your bucket list.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
