North Africa - Blend of traditional markets & mosques, beaches & breath-taking desert landscapes
North Africa is an atmospheric, bustling and exotic part of the world, boasting large and important port cities overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Here you will find ancient ways of life mixed in with colonial heritage and 21st century developments. Brightsun Travel has cheap flights to North Africa, right across Morocco, to the important port of Casablanca, and to Tangier, at the crossroads of Europe and Africa, and finally into Marrakesh, a holiday hot spot. Starting in the largest city in Morocco, Casablanca, you will find a progressive attitude and a fast-changing urban landscape. In recent years the city has developed a slick central tram system, has revitalised old industrial pockets into creative enclaves, and brought its central green space, the Parc de La Ligue, into the 21st century, with new world class stadiums and modern promenades. But combined with the new are old picturesque and traditional markets, beautiful Mauresque architecture and the incredible Hassan II Mosque, one of the largest in Africa. Onto Marrakesh, and you are spoilt for choice in ‘the Jewel of the South’, where you will find one of the world’s largest open air markets with hidden secret gardens, a vibrant arts and cultural scene, plus modern suburbs offering some of the continent's best nightlife.
Brightsun Travel has a wide range of cheap tickets to North Africa, so that you can explore all that the incredible region has to offer. Apart from its progressive city of Casablanca, and the ancient and atmospheric city of Marrakesh, Morocco offers visitors another city to enjoy. Tangier, sitting at the juncture of Europe and Africa, offers its visitors a city in revival, with Africa’s first high speed train line sitting happily alongside a café culture that dates back centuries. Here you can sip strong coffee from white washed balconies, and enjoy breath-taking panoramic ocean views. Or you could explore backstreets lined with traditional shops, Art Deco architecture and retro movie theatres. When the sun is out you could while away hot African afternoons on its central beach, and after sunset, explore revived old clubs now serving cocktails prepared by world class mixologists. Whatever you are looking for from a trip to North Africa and Morocco, Brightsun Travel has several North African flights from UK to take you direct to the centre of all that the region has to offer.
