This summer, have you traveled to Morocco?
1. Get lost in the mesmerizing architectures
Moroccan buildings are famous worldwide for their unique charm. From intricate carvings, classic domes to colors and interiors… these are the wonders you have never seen in modern buildings. Churches, temples and palaces from the past are still intact and have never been renovated. You will recognize this by looking closely.
2. Discover the amazing riads
Riad is a typical type of house in Morocco. Looking from the outside, you will not know what is hidden behind the door. However, once you step in, you will be totally overwhelmed with the scenery inside. These riads completely help you escape the busy markets and hot air out there. In particular, riad beds will surround and rotate toward the yard of the house. In other words, the garden is completely located in the center. So, if you intend to travel Morocco, skip the hotel and try to stay in this kind of traditional home! This will definitely be a great experience.
3. Take a walk in medinas
Medinas are Moroccan traditional markets. Your senses will wake up when you walk into these quarters. Be careful because the medinas are really mazes. Let yourself be lost a little while checking out some handmade shops. If you intend to return with some souvenirs, you may want to "train" your ability to bargain.
4. Take photos in a blue city

Surely this will be the most memorable trip in your youthful years.
