Beaches and Berbers, medinas and mosques, souks and sand dunes ... Morocco has variety and an exotic feel that has fascinated travellers since long before the hippies arrived. Affordable and only a short ferry from Spain, Morocco's mix of traditional and modern strikes the perfect balance between the intensely exotic and comfortingly familiar. Made for a movie set, cities like Fez, Marrakech, and Casablanca evoke images of medinas, spice markets and couscous, while the geographic extremes - from the Atlas Mountains to beach resorts to camels in the desert - make it eminently photogenic. The mad circus of Marrakech's Djemaa el Fna square, packed with incense, salesmen and snake charmers, is so bizarre and entertaining you'll be looking for the hidden camera.
