After our long trip through Casablanca and Nador, Rabat appears to be the most calm and relaxing city even if it is the capital of Moroccan Kingdom. I feel like at home in this place. There are some of the things which I would like to highlight with the pink glitter marker which made our stay in Rabat very comfortable and unforgettable.
Safety. Rabat is one of the safest places in Morocco. As my Moroccan friend says this might be because the King lives in Rabat. I like to visit the places where someone from the king`s family lives.
The blue district. If you`ve heard about famous Moroccan blue city Shefshauen, but didn’t have time or opportunity to visit it – there is personal small blue city in Rabat! Close to the Ocean side there is a blue district with narrow streets in Moroccan style. I could say that there is one of my favorite places in the capital of Morocco.
Ocean. One of my favorite travel destinations are those which has water like Sea or Ocean. Rabat has many of Ocean beaches so it’s automatically included to my best destinations. This time we’ve even got a proposition to teach us surfing for free, but unfortunately we didn`t took our swimsuits with us)
Shopping. If it is such a rich in cultural field places like Morocco I`m not interested in shopping at all, but to buy some souvenirs for family and friends it is in the must do thing. There is a small version of Bazaar where you can buy some traditional Moroccan things.
Udayas Kasbah which was constructed to defend local tribes. It is beautiful Arab architecture which reminds about medieval castles. There is one of the most popular touristic destinations in Rabat.
Another thing which was very important during our stay in Rabat is that we lived in big and modern apartment in the city center of the Moroccan capital. This place became our home for the next week and we really felt like there was our house.
There are many of clubs in Rabat which could be interesting for tourist to visit. We`ve been to many of them, as well as on the boat restaurant close to the Udayas Kasbah. We were dreaming about going to karaoke and I have to mention that Moroccan people are really good singers.
Food. There are many of the places in Rabat which could offer good food and drinks for good prices. We were looking for the most overcrowded places to eat, because that was the sign of the good food presence. There are many of confectioneries, fresh bars and fast foods where you can try delicious Moroccan dishes.
Hospitable Moroccans. To summer up I`d like to say that Moroccan people are very hospitable. Once we were coming from Marrakech with mattress and we were so hungry so came directly with it to the fancy restaurant. We kindly asked the receptionist to put somewhere our mattress while we will have our dinner… He thought we were kidding, but when he saw the mattress he started to smile)))
