During the past decade the Kingdom of Morocco has expanded its footprint throughout the world as it’s well respected and recognized King Mohammed VI chose a progressive path to modernize Morocco and help its lower class rise up through providing a better life. Mohammed VI has also modernized Morocco through his progressive views on communication, construction and the arts. Morocco is virtually wired and Moroccan travelers can be assured that when visiting they will be able to reach home through their international cell phone from almost every part of the country. Morocco is wired from Safi to the Sahara. Every Imperial City offers a wide range of internet options from internet cafes to free wife lounges and for only $60.00 a modem can be purchased and within minutes you can be online.


Morocco’s King Mohammed VI has also led a path to housing in urban areas by encouraging a variety of projects from new apartment buildings to luxury villas. While Morocco may have an over abundance of housing in its major cities as a result of this, one thing that any new Moroccan resident is guaranteed are options of a place to live.

Marrakech is also on the verge of expanding to have gigamalls and other kinds of shopping and eating plazas. For outsiders it may appear to be a bit much or headed to the mainstream if it has not already but for residents of Morocco it is a welcome change and opportunity to find goods that were for so long hard to locate in the Maghreb.

The arts are also flourishing in Morocco from public art being shown at Marrakech’s new train station to regular international exhibitions being held at the Contemporary Museum of Marrakech. While there is not one major museum in Morocco there is a plethora of fine art, crafts and Moroccan Jewelry art available in all of the medina’s, within the new city centers of Marrakech, Fes, Ouarzazate, Casablanca and Essaouira along with a mélange of imports that while are available at a high price can well be worth the purchase.

The better life for the average Moroccan who lives off agriculture means being able to till their fields regardless of volatile weather and having the advantage of knowing that additional supplements of wheat and other grains or means for their fields are available through local government assistance or through national government assistance.

King Mohamed VI has also achieved expanding Morocco’s footprint on the world stage through his moderate views of allowing so many foreigners to visit and settle as residents in the majestic Maghreb. Morocco is on the upswing attracting more tourism then ever before and offering more value for its money.

People who consider traveling to Morocco for the first time have so many options to choose from with regards to accommodations, eating choices and vacation experiences. Marrakech, often referred to as the Paris of Morocco for its lush green parks, colorful shops, elegant monuments and clean streets offers Moroccan travelers the opportunity to stay in 4 or 5 Star Traditional Moroccan Riads with welcoming tea service and all of the amenities plus more that one could find on a vacation to Europe. Marrakech compliments this by also offer 3 Star Riads that are charming and a variety of 3 Star, 4 Star and 5 Star Upscale and reasonably priced hotel accommodations.

Say the word food in the Maghreb and your lips are likely to moisten quickly. Every city in Morocco is known for having great cuisine. Wherever you travel on your Moroccan vacation, providing you chose a customized Morocco tour, a Morocco travel agency or do the research on your own, you are bound to have some of the best meals of your life in either a restaurant or with a local Moroccan family.

The best times to visit Morocco are in April and May as well as September and October. Moroccans are welcoming and traveling to Morocco during any season guarantees a spectacular holiday experience.

Each morning there are a series of round table discussions promoting dialogue on cultural awareness and understanding. While there was an increase in conflict in the Middle East it became a crucial goal to increase the understanding. The founders aimed to bring together the world in its many faiths regardless of  the historical atrocities. Musicians, authors and intellectuals come together in hopes to resolve pertinent issues of the times, discussing religion, democracy, music, social justice, conflict resolution and even climate change.

The Imperial City

Fes is known for its strong cultural, intellectual and spiritual presence. As a city at the heart of Moroccan civilization, and has been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. The evening concerts are held at Bab Makina, the entrance to the Royal Palace.  Afternoon concerts are held in the Dar Batha Museum, a slightly smaller area.



The drum is a crucial element for the spiritual music of the Fes Festival. The festival comes alive with Sufi chants, Pakistani qawwali chants, flamenco Christian saeta, Egyption madhi odes, sacred incantations of ancient Indian and Turkish whirling. Locals often fall into chants from the hypnotic rhythms, and the Muslim call to prayer echoes over the loud speakers through the city gates. 


Wide Range Program

In recent years the festival has opened with Christian, Jewish and Muslim childrens chiors as a symbol of peace and unity. Along with the round table discussions and performances there are also film events, photography and art exhibits. This years program focuses on our origin, existance and individuality and will feature The Gospel According to John by Abed Azrie and Spiritual Songs from the Arab World lead by Sami Yussef. The festival will also focus on the balance between materialism and spirituality.
