One can easily find many foreign dishes here, along with local Berber or Moorish cuisine.
Moroccan dishes are quite rich in flavor, including their sweets.
The most popular local dishes are Tajine – a cuisine prepared from meat and fruits, the traditional soup called Harira, and of course the national food item Couscous.
Green tea with mint leaves is served everywhere, though various types of red or white wine and beer are available too.
The cultural traditions of Morocco to entertain the foreign tourist:
The most popular local festival is Aid el Arch, celebrated every year pompously to commemorate the coronation of King Mohammad VI.
Another festival is Fez, which is a great musical conference.
Other immensely enjoyable celebrations of Morocco are South of Marakkesh – a kind of fest where all types of commodities are displayed for sale; and Celebration of the Throne – a ceremony celebrated with crackers.
Morocco is very hospitable, with plenty of hotels, restaurants and casinos for the entertainment of tourists. It has a smooth transport system traversing the country, alongside its wonderfully rich cultural heritage.
So it is really a life-time experience to visit and enjoy the African country of Morocco.
