Casablanca is the business capital of Morocco, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a much more modern and less traditional Moroccan feel. Visitors generally recommend Marrakech over Casablanca for its vibe, colors and smells, history, and tourist-friendly atmosphere (despite some hassles).
Casablanca in Morocco is often overlooked as a travel destination, since most tourists bypass the city and head on to Marrakech and Fes. But instead of immediately hopping on a train or connecting flight, it’s worth it to spend at least a day or two discovering all the things to do in Casablanca .
We found 3 days in Marrakech itself was more than enough, but if you want to do some day trips and also travel to other areas you should definitely take more than a week. Essouira is worth 2- 3 days , traveling up north to Casablanca and Fez will need another 4- 5 days .
Marrakech is the fourth-largest city in Morocco, and is one of the country’s major tourist spots. To see it, ideally you’ll want to allocate at least 2- 3 days , although those with less time to spare can still enjoy the experience.
