Marrakech has to be seen but for me it was too busy and stressful, so I headed out to an increasingly popular place on the coast called Essouria. It's a Moroccan?s holiday spot and fantastic to chill out in, it has beaches castles and lots of arts/crafts. You can get there by bus from Marrakech. As for cheap places to stay, every town has them, I was boring and just followed my guide book- it worked out well and I spent roughly £7 a night for a room shower and breakfast.

Have fun, morocco is a wonderful Country-Also make sure you make it to the Atlas mountains, a days hiking there will stay with you for the rest of your life.

I travelled along the country for 2 months, last year. If you have less time, you I could start in Marrakech and continue to the South. This is the most underdeveloped and by far the most magnificent part. You could spend a night up in the mountain and get as far as the desert.
Do haggle for a few nights on a camel in the Sahara.

The best place in Morocco is anywhere else! Just kidding. But seriously, I once met a guy who had been asking around among travellers what peoples worst experience was country-wise and Morocco came out on top. I've been there too, and my initial reaction was the same. We started in Fez and that was just horrible. Nice city, but the people spoil it entirely. To the extent that you don't even get to see the city. And keep two hands on your wallet and your wit about you at all times. But then we moved out to the country-side (we had our own truck) and there people were totally and utterly different. Very friendly. This was a rather short through-trip, but the difference was too striking to be a coincidence.

I am also interested to hear if a female travelling alone would be ok?

Ive just modified my europe trip to include morocco because it looks fabulous! (Place Djemaa El-Fna!!!) But i will probably only make the crossing for a few days, so the chances of finding anyone to do it with me are slim..

How about Fes, Marrakesh, Agadir, Tafraout and Rabat? they worth to be seen, and for any help about the capital, Rabat, ask me.
