HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU CASABLANCA

Morocco’s commercial centre might not be as popular as Marrakech, Fez and Rabat but travellers are definitely missing out if they don’t endeavour to explore this charismatic centre on the country’s west coast.

The combination of Arab culture and French-colonial charm give the location heaps of history while a new generation that’s moving in to make their money in modern industries are pushing it towards the future.

 

CHOOSE TO GO ETIHAD


Fancy checking out Casablanca? Etihad will get you there in fine form with the airline allocating innovative 787 Dreamliners to the route and giving passengers more choice on how they go with first, business and economy available on the daily runs.

But the choices don’t end there with Etihad striving to put the decision making into every passenger’s hands – whether flying First class or Economy – to personalise the travel experience.

Because, after 15 years in the air, the United Arab Emirates national carrier knows business and leisure flyers want something that suits them when completing a sky-high journey rather than simply taking what they’re given.

Casablanca is emerging from the shadow cast by Morocco’s more famous holiday hotspots and we have some advice to assist in exploring this alluring African address.

 

1. MARVEL AT A GRAND MOSQUE

Get a feel for this predominantly-Muslim country by touring Hassan II Mosque which is the world’s second-largest mosque and a location for the faithful to pray that can accommodate 25,000 worshipers inside the walls and another 80,000 people in the courtyard.

The landmark completed in 1993 sits on a promontory beside the Atlantic Ocean so arrive in the afternoon when breezes begin cooling the coastline to watch the locals that descend on sunset to stroll the sea wall.

 

2. GET LOST IN THE OLD MEDINA

While there’s a temptation to head straight for the seaside, to dine on seafood in a café by the coast or wander The Corniche, locals recommend retreating into the maze of streets marking Casablanca’s Old Medina.

It’s easy to get lost – but don’t fret, visitors always emerge with or without help from a finger-pointing local – so navigate the narrow streets slowly to experience a living that hasn’t changed in centuries and pick up a treasure at market stalls hidden away in the alleys.

 

3. STOP FOR A SPECIAL DRINK

Ascend to the 28th floor of the Kenzi Tower Hotel, find a place to perch beside windows framing a view across the rooftops to the Hassan II Mosque in the distance, and order a cocktail to toast Etihad’s success.

Or, if that’s a little modern, make for the Parc de la Ligue Arabe – Casablanca’s biggest patch of open space celebrating its centenary in 2018 – and linger over a refreshment at one of the cafes beneath the branches.
