Taroudant – Morocco appears in Frobes’ list of the 10 Coolest Places to Visit in 2015, announced last week.
The American business magazine ranked Morocco the World’s second coolest destination in 2015, highlighting the country’s famous souks, square and riads of Marrakech or the amazing beaches of Agadir.
Only behind Iceland, which topped the list as “the happiest place on earth,” Morocco comes second ahead of many renowned world’s tourist destinations such as Vietnam, the United States, Tasmania Australian, Colombia and Japan.
The Forbes list invites the world travelers to explore the other adventurous regions in the kingdom apart from the famous tourist destinations like Fez, Marrakesh and Agadir.
The list highlighted amazing places in the southeast of the country such as the Todra Gorges located in Tinghir, the valley of roses in Kelaat Megouna, the Kasbahs of Ouarzazate and the gigantic golden dunes of Erg Chebbi.
“Intrepid visitors can scale the sheer walls of the Todra Gorge for summit views of the rose valleys beyond,” Forbes wrote.
A few hundred kilometers to the northeast and far from the mountainous and winding roads of the Gorges of Todgha, lie the vast and majestic dunes of golden sand known as Erg Chebbi, one of the largest ergs in the kingdom located in Merzouga, covering an area of 50 kilometers.
The travelers can also “head for the horizon to gloriously outfitted Bedouin tents rising from a sea of sand dunes in Erg Chebbi, the gateway to the Sahara,” the same source added.
The diversity of Morocco’s landscapes, beaches, climate and culture enable it to appear regularly in the lists of the world’s best tourist destinations.
Last month, Lonely Planet selected the kingdom among the top best countries to visit in 2015 due to its proximity to Europe, unique style of cuisine and diversified and rich culture.
Lahcen Hadad, minister of tourism, has said previously that Morocco is “resolved to be among the world’s top 20 tourism destinations by 2020,” thanks to its numerous assets, mainly political stability, friendly people and proximity to Europe.
