Morocco remains one of the top destinations for tourists from all over the world.
Rabat – French information website Boursorama published an article about the five best destinations to discover in 2020. The list showcased Morocco in fifth place.
Boursorama published the rankings on Friday, December 27.
“Why should you go to Morocco in 2020? Because the country is improving its infrastructure, notably in the cities of Fez, Essaouira, Meknes, and Marrakech. The latter is becoming the first African capital of culture, in 2020,” says the article.
“For lodging, new eco-friendly accommodation is blooming all over the country. As for transportation, the development of high-speed trains is ongoing. You can, for example, travel from Casablanca to Tangier in only two hours,” concludes the publication.
The author illustrated the publication with a colorful photo showing the main entrance of the Dar al-Makhzen royal palace in Fez. The image shows the palace’s golden-colored doors, with their sophisticated motifs, and the intricate mosaic decorating the walls.
Other countries that appeared on the list are Uruguay, followed by Uzbekistan, Chile, and Costa Rica.
Several travel magazines have also spotlighted Morocco as a top tourist destination, especially in recent years, with its infrastructure development projects going at full speed.
In October, travel guide website Lonely Planet listed Morocco among the top 10 destinations for 2020. Morocco ranked ninth on the list, ahead of Uruguay in the 10th position.
“Morocco is having a moment, with time-honored attractions complemented by sustainable-yet-stylish lodging, restaurants serving up seasonal produce and coastal wellness retreats mixing up yoga and surfing,” said the website.
The ranking also praised Morocco’s “improved infrastructure” that makes it easier for visitors to get around, recalling the inauguration of Africa’s first high-speed train linking Casablanca to Tangier.
