Just a half-hour ferry ride from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar lies another exotically different world. The Kingdom of Morocco is a true cultural, culinary, and eco treasure trove, from Imperial Cities like Marrakesh, Fez, Meknes, and Rabat to huge, dynamic Casablanca to funky, historic ports such as Tangier and Essaouira. And for the even more adventurous, expeditions into Morocco's hinterlands unlock what you might call the deep essence" of this ancient land. Topping this list, I'd have to say, would be Morocco's Berber gateways to the Sahara Desert: Aït-Ben-Haddou and Ouarzazate.
