Enjoy the glorious sunsets with cool local music. Sort yourself as a backpacker. There are some issues in Morocco. This country is not an ideal destination for solo backpackers; especially for women. So the best idea is to form a group of backpackers. But don’t underestimate this country just for this single drawback. Kitesurfing, the maze of souks, fez, the unique culture of fishermen in Tangier etc are Moroccos’s best attractions. The best time to visit Morocco in September to October. Though seemingly not, But Morocco is surely more or less one of the best backpacking destinations in the world.
