With the enhanced tourism heavily invested by the Moroccan government ensuring a good GDP from Morocco’s tourist industry.

The first step first! Take a Ferry
Go traditional in Tangier. Travel on the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier and bathe in fresh sea breath and enjoy the calm waters. When visiting Spain, Costa Del Sol, take a step more and enter the mutual gateway of Africa and Europe. Take good selfies or a memory shot and share it on Instagram or make a tweet about it!
Take a Morning Stroll
Rise and shine mates! Hop up and warm up your body for starting the day a bit early. Morning walks are health benefactors for body n mind so keeping your health in mind we decided to make you go on a walk in the cobbled historical streets of Tangier. Make your way to Boulevard Mohammed VI and breathe in the grand view of ancient walls of the city and get to enjoy the richness of Moroccan breakfast on street café just facing the opposite side of Atlantic coastline. It’s freaking amazing!
Morning walks benefits us from a happy start of the day and with afresh mind why not continue the blissful day at the local library? Or more like a local bookshop filled with the tasty might of history and cultural influences with a wide variety of books to choose from Librairie des Colonnes collection. Author signings are also arranged why not get to meet the author themselves? And get their personal point of view too?
Keep a Tight Leash on Pocket (or not!)

Besides item may cost more than their par value because you are a tourist but hey hassling skills can definitely come in handy at this point. It’s only the souks that are overpriced but the local boutiques offer great quality fabricated designs in Caftans, well hand embroidered will make you select one impulsively.
Blue is My Next Favourite Colour
What is it with the shades of blues in Morocco? Like Chefchaouen (impaled with blues) some part of Tangier can be dissected into the same category.
If in the mood for some cuppa visit Café Hafa, with its blue lined walls and well-reversed ambiance of the early ’90s is perfect to enjoy a high tea and you can interview the locals there too. Owners are extremely generous with their tales and it’s a picturesque moment.
Some Piece of U.S
American legacy is put on display as American Legation Museum consisting of historic artifacts and a research library holding onto such priceless treasure over the past number of years will help you learn of old days.
This museum is the representation of U.S and Morocco going hand in hand with centuries tagging along. It will only cost you 20 dirhams to get a ticket to enter the museum and is totally worth the price and the time.
Historical notions bring people together, marking its way as to how people used to co-exist before and creating an example of their own now.
