15 days for budget minded
In our humble opinion, there’s no better way to spend two weeks than travelling around majestic, marvelous, magical Morocco. In a country with no shortage of highlights, we make sure to hit all the main ones, including Fez, Chefchaouen, the coastal hippie mecca of Essaouira and plenty of souks to shop in and beaches to relax on. After an overnight stay in a Berber camp and a few market barters under your belt, you’ll feel like a local in no time.
