Tangier, Morocco: A City on the Rise

Enjoying a rich history and a unique geographical location, Tangier sits majestically between a sea and an ocean at the crossroads of several civilizations. With the opening of Tanger Med, the city is in the process of becoming one of the world’s largest maritime hubs.

Over a long period of time Tangier has acted as a tourist and cultural capital of the Kingdom due to its mild and temperate climate, its superb landscapes and exclusive stamp allowing this lovely city to exude an intense feeling of well-being and serenity.

Tangier or Tanjah in Arabic, is actually a little stretch of paradise that has served as an inspiration to several artists from a wide range of disciplines. It is a genuine venue where a myriad of world influences converge.

Apart from its multicultural and tourist aspects, the region of Tangier, via its various infrastructures, the quality of its resources and the diversity of its industrial fabric is currently Morocco’s second ranking center of economic activity.

  1. Tangier looks beautiful… in my plans for traveling to Europe, i have planned to go to a day trip to Morocco, but looking at these posts makes me want to stay longer than that! It might be a silly question, but I just don’t know… is safety an issue for American travelers in Morocco? More so than it would be in any other city throughout Europe?

    1. Morocco is just as safe as Europe. This country lives off of tourism dollars, so the police are especially careful to take care of tourists, but not that they ever need to – the people here are hospitable and very warm. I think you’d enjoy a trip to Morocco!
