Itinerary Idea 1
Morocco in 5 days
If you're looking for an efficient way to see the best of Morocco, then visit the red city of Marrakech, explore the dunes of the Sahara desert and take in the breathtaking views of the High Atlas Mountains. Marrakech, the fourth largest city in Morocco, is known for its enchanting opera displayed on its streets. The streets are busy throughout the day because there are many things to do in Morocco. They can seem quite daunting but are beautifully-designed. You will be awestruck by the range of local dishes on the streets of Marrakech. You must try some.
Day 1: Explore the Sahara

Explore the dunes of the Sahara Desert, one of the best places in Morocco to visit. Walk on the fine sand and witness the blue skies and sunshine during the day and snow by dawn when the temperature drops! The only way to move in the desert is by taking a good long ride on the camels. Well, it's going to be slow and bumpy but totally worth it! You get to explore the wilderness and indulge in some activities during the day and in the evening you will have musical performances by the locals. Best of all, you get to camp in the Sahara. Pretty cool, right! Your adventure takes place in one of several tents lined up on all sides with beds and is catered with delicious Moroccan fare. You get to experience the different side of Morocco.
Day 2: Bahia Palace

One of the most interesting things to do in Morocco is visit the Bahia Palace and shop in the souks . As the name suggests, it is, indeed, a brilliant palace surrounded by magnificently-designed gardens. Bahia, which means brilliant, is another excellent example ancient Moroccan architecture. Souks are basically the small, crowded marketplace where you can get just about everything — antiques, accessories, home essentials, Moroccan-style clothing — at affordable prices. This stop is bound to keep you hyped about the Morocco trip!
Day 3: Mosques in Morocco

Ben Youssef and the Koutoubia Mosque are the largest and oldest mosques of Morocco. They were built in the 16th and 19th centuries, respectively. They are not overly ornate and are spread across a huge piece of land. They are definitely great works of architecture and craftsmanship and should be toured.
Day 4: Unmissable in your Morocco trip

The High Atlas Mountains are definitely not to be missed! It's a pleasure to hike in the ranges that are dotted with majestic plateaus. Get a glimpse of Toubkal, the highest peak.
Day 5: Film location

Around the world, Game of Thrones was one of the most popular shows in the last decade. Whether you're a Game of Thrones fan or not, you should visit Ouarzazate. It's one of the home of the largest film studios in the world and where a lot of the fantasy series was shot. It's also the place where epic movies like Star Wars, Prison Break and The Mummy were filmed. Every film buff should have this location on their bucket list. It is one of the most interesting places to visit in Morocco.
Accomodation
Riad is one of the most highly-recommended places to stay while exploring Marrakech. A riad is a type of accommodation that has several stories and courtyard.
Transportation
Morocco is easily reachable. Although Marrakech has a good airport, the bus is the preferred way to travel across the Sahara Desert, the High Atlas Mountains and the rest of Morocco. Hiring a cab is very affordable!
