Though rooted in its traditions, Morocco offers all the conveniences of modern times.  It is a firmly future-focused country that has succeeded in preserving its traditions and promoting its cultural heritage by harnessing them to drive development. The city of Marrakesh is a perfect example: the Medina district and its souks have an unmatched old-fashioned charm, while Guéliz and Hivernage are decked out with the most modern infrastructure and facilities. Far from being in conflict, modernity and tradition together are what makes Morocco strong.  As a visitor, you will enjoy every modern convenience and pleasure.

Marrakech has just been designated African Capital of Culture 2020, a showcase of today's urban Africa, highlighting the diversity of African cultural expressions throughout the country.
