48 Hours in Casablanca, Morocco

Casablanca is usually written off as a place to land at the airport and head directly for Morocco's photogenic destinations like Marrakech, Fes, Chefchaouen, the Sahara, or the Atlas Mountains.

Marrakech, Morocco: The Solo Female Travel Guide to a Weekend in the Red City

Solo female travel in Marrakech, Morocco might sound intimidating, but I think it's the ideal destination for three reasons: it's safe (violent crimes against tourists are rare in Morocco), the nightlife is either ridiculously expensive or nonexistent so you won't feel like you're missing something without friends to go out with, and the shopping is so fantastic,…
