Travel Opportunities

Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city and the country’s main port, which translates into quite a few gritty and industrial-looking neighborhoods. But Casablanca is also the most cosmopolitan of Morocco’s cities, with nightclubs, fast food chains and high-end boutiques. Casablanca is often the first stop for international passengers flying in from afar, and the city is basically used as a transit point. But before you dismiss it entirely and quickly move on to Fes, Rabat or Marrakech, you must stop to visit the Hassan II Mosque, honestly one of the most beautiful buildings ever built. Casablanca Voyagers station serves trains to Fes, Marrakech, and Tangier with stops in between and also there are intercity buses and various private lines that run services to most notable Moroccan towns.
