The beautiful seaside town of Essaouira, a Unesco world heritage site, is steeped in history. Step into the colourful treasure trove of the souks, where you’ll find a maze of market stalls laden with fine textiles, jewel-coloured pottery, pungent mountains of spices and beautifully crafted leather goods. You can pay a visit to the tanneries in Fes during your stay at the Golden Tulip Tghat hotel. With its hot, sunny climate, bordered by both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, Morocco boasts stunning desert landscapes and glorious, untouched beaches. Set off to discover the shifting dunes by camel, but before you go, book a stay in a Golden Tulip hotel not far from the magnificent Taourirt Kasbah in Ouarzazate, the gateway to the desert. Watch this 17th century Berber fortress turn a glorious copper colour at sunset.
