This “Top 5” series holds dear to my heart. 1. It’s top on my bucket list, 2. I hear it’s beyond beautiful, 3. It’s in the motherland, Africa. I’m speaking of no other than Morocco. I had the pleasure of chatting with Anas Ouaadidy, Marrakech native, fashion blogger, traveller and photographer. You’ve probably stumbled across his Instagram page (dy_anas) and stared in awe at his beautiful photos of him living his best life in his hometown.
Anas dropped major keys through his top 5 list of places you must visit in Morocco. What makes this list even more exciting to read is it’s from a local. You can’t get more authentic than that.
Lets dive in.
A beautiful camp ground in the dessert of Morocco. It’s a really photogenic place.

My favorite Riad in town! A boutique hotel located near Jemaa el Fna in the middle of the souk in the old historical medina.
A creative private hotel with th most beautiful interior. It’s in the heart of the Palmeraie of Marrakech and only a 15 minute drive from the walls of the Red City.

This is a place where you will never see the same thing. I always discover something new every time I visit these markets.
