Morocco has been SURGING as a tourist destination lately! Over the past few years, Morocco has taken over the #2 spot from South Africa as the country in Africa with the most tourist arrivals per year. And now Egypt – the perennial leader of the continent – has seen massive drops in tourism with all of their political chaos, which opens the door for Morocco to take over as the most visited country in Africa with 10,000,000 tourists visiting in 2013.
I live in Tangier, Morocco, and it’s been exciting to see all of the development. Check out this video by Rick Steves and let him give you a quick tour of the city!
