The seaside cities like Tangiers offer Mediterranean charm; inland Marrakesh thrums with vibrant souks, markets where legendary fine Moroccan crafts are made and sold, and Moorish architectural wonders loom overhead; and Casablanca is the economic center plays host to an energetic business culture and international trade.
Beyond the cities, the real adventures await. In the Rif and High Atlas mountains, snow-capped mountains meet fertile valleys and bursting streams, and travelers can trek, kayak, ski and experience authentic Berber culture. In the south the most western edge of the Sahara lies assured in its dominance over the landscape, and the adventurers can feel its might by journeying on camel-back or 4x4.
The most well-known and popular travel destination in Southeast Asia, the lure of Thailand is felt by millions of tourists every year. Enticed by the sparkling beaches of the islands in the south, the enigmatic temples and hill-tribes of the north, and the neon lights of Bangkok in between, exotic Thailand has something for every traveler.
A holiday in Sri Lanka isn't for travelers looking for gleaming cities and sophisticated nightlife, but cities like Colombo and Kandy offer plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, as well as excellent museums that give unique insight into the captivating culture of Sri Lanka. While the island is often overlooked for more popular destinations like Thailand and Indonesia, a holiday in Sri Lanka is an enticing adventure for travelers willing to go off the beaten track.
