Head to Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, and you will experience a contemporary side to the country, in revitalised urban areas and trendy shopping quarters, as well as a central park that was reopened in 2017 as one of the city’s star attractions. Start at the Galleries Lafayette, a huge contemporary shopping mall, and you will feel more like you are in the centre of Paris than an ancient city in North Africa. Or, for prime hipster territory, you can’t beat the Quartier Gauthier, where you will find high end boutiques along Rue Jean Jaures and plenty of cafes and sophisticated restaurants to while away your afternoon. Afterwards, head to the central Corniche, a picturesque boulevard sitting elegantly on the waterfront, with some of the best bars and clubs in the city. Finally, visit the newly reopened Parc de La Ligue, and stroll neat promenades, take a picnic or catch a world class show at the park’s massive stadium. Whatever you are looking for from a holiday to North Africa, Brightsun Travel has a wide selection of exclusive Casablanca holidays to suit a range of tastes and budgets.
Now moving on to Casablanca’s historical side. In Casablanca you will be amazed by its extraordinary architecture, a mix of Moorish and European styles, reflecting its French colonial heritage. If you are planning only on seeing one building in the city, then make sure it’s the Hassan II Mosque, one of Africa’s largest, where you can take a daily guided tour. But, adding on to that-the Casablanca Cathedral, the Grand Theatre de Casa, and the Villa des Arts art museum, and then only your architectural city tour will be complete. Particularly worth a visit is the Quartier Habous, a fine neighbourhood in the city, boasting a diverse mix of architecture. Don’t forget Casablanca’s vibrant markets. You can’t get better than the central market where you can take lunch at large outdoor tables, and haggle over a range of produce and products. Casablanca is an incredible city in North Africa, perfect for that winter city break from UK.
