Casablanca- Travel website Smarter Travel has recently published a list of 10 places it considers as the “most disappointing” destinations in the world. Casablanca has made it to the list.
Casablanca, Morocco’s economic capital is a “soulless” city, according to Smarter Travel. According to the website, Casablanca is only a transitory station, unlike other places in the Northern African kingdom, and is thus one of the “10 most disappointing” destinations in the world.
“Many international flights to Morocco arrive in Casablanca, but many visitors wish that their flight had kept right on going. This very commercial city is mostly office buildings and has been called “soulless” by many tourists. Transit here, but keep on going to the rest of Morocco if you want a more authentic experience,” says the survey.
In addition to Casablanca, the top teen “most disappointing destinations in the world” includes Gibraltar (UK), the Niagara Falls in New York, Temple Bar in Dublin, California’s Hollywood, Nassau, in Bahamas, Liberty Island in New York, Frankfurt in Germany, Florida’s famous Walt Disney World, and Las Vegas.
The survey, however, doesn’t says what are the criteria it used to arrive to such a conclusion or whether it based its ranking on the opinions expressed by travelers.
In another survey published by American Magazine WeatherWise, Morocco’s largest city ranked 3rd best weather place in the world.
Referring to weather condition in Casablanca, the survey says: “Strongly moderated by cold currents of the Atlantic Ocean, the weather of the northwestern coast of Morocco experiences little seasonal variability and extremely mild temperatures year round. According to World Meteorological Organization data for Casablanca, which lies in the heart of this region, January experiences an average daily high of 63°F and a mean nighttime low of 45°F.”
