The Lonely Planet also ranked Morocco among the ten destinations for 2020.
Rabat – US magazine Forbes tasked Ovation Travel Group’s agents with the preparation an “exclusive list” of top 2020 destinations. The list included one of Morocco’s popular destinations: Marrakech known as the red city for its red washed buildings.
Forbes invites tourists who are “active and adventurous” to explore the red city. The destination is also attractive to tourists interested to explore different cultural experiences, Forbes added.
Quoting travel advisor at Ovation Travel Group Susan Ganis, Forbes said that the Moroccan popular city offers “one-of-a-kind experiences such as a candlelit dinner in the middle of the desert replete with camel rides, belly dancers and fire eaters.”
Marrakech is one of the popular cities in Morocco that record a continuous increase of tourists annually.
Morocco’s Tourism Observatory said in September that 7.544 million tourists visited Morocco by the end of July 2019.
The statistics show that that the “two tourist destinations of Marrakech and Agadir generated 57% of hotel nights in the first seven months of 2019.”
Several renowned international publications have featured Morocco and its tourism assets as key pillars of the country’s economy. Last week, the travel guide publisher Lonely Planet listed Morocco among the top ten destinations for 2020.
“Morocco is having a moment, with time-honoured attractions complemented by sustainable-yet-stylish lodging, restaurants serving up seasonal produce and coastal wellness retreats mixing up yoga and surfing,” Lonely Planet wrote.
The travel guide publisher listed Marrakech as one of the destinations that tourists should visit when in Morocco in 2020.
In addition to the Lonely Planet, Flight Network also named Marrakech one for the top 50 beautiful cities in the world.
“You’ll feel like you’ve been transported into a movie while you walk through the Old City, and then feel transported back to today when stepping into the New City,” Flight Network states.
