This has Morocco written all over it... In just one short 3.5-hour flight away (blink and you will miss it) you could find yourself breathing in fragrant spices in the bustling souks of Marrakech, sipping a deliciously sweet mint tea, riding a camel through the dunes of the Agafay, or hiking in the Atlas Mountains. For those looking for a beach break, Morocco can offer that too – the possibilities are endless, and we’ll curate a trip as romantic as can be. Get inspired here
