Morocco, a North African country bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, is distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences. This is a MUST-SEE destination as it offers a mix of European and African culture in one place.

Highly recommended: Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge
You can book a shared room for as low as 370 PHP per day (£6.00).
Personally, I enjoyed my stay in this hostel because the staff members are very friendly and accommodating and I have met a lot of travellers with whom I have shared a lot of unforgettable memories and experiences. This hostel is only 10-minute walking distance from famous tourist spots such as Jemaa El-Fnaa, a historical market.
Moroccan food are mainly cheap and serve big portions. I’ve spent roughly £2 (120 PHP) per meal. Avoid eating at tourist spots as they will charge you more than the side shops. Another tip to save money on foods while travelling is to always carry a large refillable bottle of water with you so you don’t need to pay extra. Try Moroccan Shisha for only 40 MD = 196 PHP and the famous Moroccan green tea mostly for FREE for any shops you enter.

Chariot/Kalesa that can tour you around the city of Marrakesh for 45 minutes but you have to bargain with the drivers. They will charge you for 200 Moroccan Dirhams (MD) but we managed to get it for 100 MD (492 PHP) after bargaining.
