by Anne Mc Lachlan (Author), K.S.McLachlan (Author), JustinMcGuinness (Editor)


Morocco is a country made for travellers with its variety of cultures - Berber, Arab and the French legacy - and variety of landscapes from the mountains of the High Atlas to the southern valleys and coastal beaches. This updated handbook is written by a North Africa specialist who has travelled and worked in Morocco over many years. It contains practical information including: detailed coverage of all accommodation from riads, guest houses, youth hostels and camp sites to sophisticated and original hotels; restaurants, bars, discos and night-life; how to cope with travel in the desert; the latest information on trekking routes and mountaineering; and how to get about with the minimum of fuss. The practical information is backed up with a picture of the cultural, social and political situation, enabling travellers to plan their trip with confidence and ease. This edition also includes a special full colour front map highlighting the best sights, plus improved contents listings and chapter openings so that you can find what you want quickly. The guide offers trekking routes and other adventure sports in and around Morocco's mountain ranges, information on where to buy the best babouches, carpets, ceramics, leatherwork and all manner of things.
