I'm planning to visit Morocco this August with some friends, and I was hoping for some comments on our itinerary.
We will all be visiting for the first time, and will probably never make it back, so we have a very busy schedule.
Day 1: Arrive in Marrakech in the afternoon
Day 2: Spend the day in Marrakech
Day 3: Travel to Ouarzazate
Day 4: Day trip to Ait Benhaddou, go on a desert camping trip in evening and overnight
Day 5: Travel to Casablanca, spend a few hours there (see mosque), then travel to Meknes
Day 6: Day trip to Volubilis, night in Meknes
Day 7: Travel to Fes
Day 8: Spend the day in Fes
Day 9: Leave Morocco from Fes in the afternoon
I would especially appreciate knowing if any destinations are not worth our limited time, and could be left out.
I know it will be quite hot when we plan to visit (unfortunately we cannot travel at any other time), so does anyone have any specific suggestions for the places I'll be visiting? I heard some trains and most buses have air-con, but how about hostels and hotels?
