Asilah - Morocco's sleepy town

The city on the Atlantic coast of northern Morocco also known as Arcila, Arzila, Asilah or Assilah in English is located about 45 kms south of Tangier. It floats along a plain of ancient land along a hill bordering with the Atlantic Ocean. The old city stands, languished behind its beautiful walls defying the ocean for five centuries. Every Thursday morning, a lively and colourful souk is installed at the foot of the ocher walls: with their clothes and wide hats, men and women in the field expo their products of their land, which pile up in large baskets and baskets wicker.

NUR Restaurant - Fez, Morocco

Inside the serpentine medina of Fez, you can find an archaic restaurant that brings a rotating cast of international chefs into a gastronomical haven for foodies. Owned by a former fashion director, Stephen di Renza, who has a keen eye for details, has made NUR Restaurant stand out with its black and white tile floorings, strikingly marble water wall and two handsome birds in a cage. The walls are serenaded with limited, large scale prints and brings out a sparsely embellished bright and airy feel to the place.

The Sidi Chahed dam reservoir was built in the 1990's, in the El Kalaa Zerhoun region in Northern Morocco. It is situated 30 kms from the cities of Fez and Meknes. Our private tour guide Plan-It Fez decided it was a good idea that we took in the glimpse of this picturesque site and had the chance to stretch our legs before continuing our day tour. This massive dam can supply over 30 million gallons (170 million m3) of backup tap water to the city of Meknes, and irrigation for about 90 farming communities. Although almost entirely unknown to Moroccans, you can see the importance this has for the surrounding communities.
