Traveling to Morocco is not cheap but every penny spent there is totally worth it.
 
The country has a lot to offer – beautiful scenery, tasty food, hospitable people, and a quality and simplicity of life that is rare in our days.
 
Morocco is probably one of the most colorful country in the world. The colors are everywhere you go. The nature is full of bold reds, mulberry and orange, and ochre; the houses are overwhelmed with green and even the food has the whole gamma of colors thanks to the spices and freshly collected veggies.
 
Another thing you should absolutely do while visiting Morocco is tasting mint tea and local pastries. It is always a good time when you enjoy these two, especially with a good view and pleasant company. The tea is served everywhere and tastes the same but the pastries vary depending on the place.
