Marrakech To Merzouga Tour: Where the dessert sways away the feet of the land, where coasts romances plains beside the horizon, where the colossal minarets apparently whisper the tales of culture, tradition and history in the ears of sky, where the sojourners are pampered with the moments of sheer bliss and where arts and crafts mark the cultural phenomena of the place – such is the invigorating atmosphere of Morocco.
The multicultural ethnicity offers a very conducive environment to the visitors where on one hand they can indulge in the ecstasy of emerald water while on the other feel the warmth of love at white sand desert, where they can see lush valleys challenging the peaks of Atlas Mountains. No wonder Morocco enjoys the charm of being one of the most frequented destinations of Africa in the itineraries of the globe trotters.
Morocco has had a glorious past where the original inhabitants of it, the Berbers, had to see the invasions of Phoenicians, Carthiginians, Vandals, Byzantines etc. It was only in the 682 AD when the Arabs arrived here that it saw several dynasties established by the Arabs. The history of Morocco is marked with a conflict between the Berbers and the Arabs. The territorial disputes of Morocco also form a strong foundation of country’s history.
The fabulous history renders an authentic culture to Morocco. Being a Muslim country, the forbidden lines are never crossed. Wearing of ostentatious outfits is not allowed to the women in the country. Even the visitors here should be aware of this fact so as to enjoy a hassle free tour here.
The religious sentiments are thoroughly revered to by the citizens and especially during the month of auspicious Ramadan. Homosexuality may be the buzz of the modern world, but here it is a criminal offence. The sexual relationships outside marriage are legally punishable. But the conservatism of Morocco doesn’t mean that it lags behind in modernity. Morocco, in its own way, is a perfect blend of contemporary fads and traditional culture.
The visitors to Morocco have enormous opportunities to soak themselves in the rapture of fun activities. It is very hard to resist the temptations of adventure sports of Morocco including trekking and hiking, walking to the Atlas Mountains, golfing, horse riding offered at the clubs, water sports that are a real attraction of the sun kissed beaches, skiing, and the four wheeler motor drives.
