Travel in Morocco

My Trip to Morocco
During a few days off from work in November 2013, I traveled to Morocco. I took my days off then tried to find the cheapest fligth. Believe it or not, the cheapest flight, return, to anywhere close to London, England was Morocco.
Trains are cheap, efficient, and an awesome way to experience the real people of Morocco. ONCF is the only train provider. Check the schedules online; you can only buy tickets at the station (not online).
Morocco, as many African countries, has modern airport facilities. Due to the relative peace in the region, flying is safe.
Petit taxis are an excellent way to travel in cities. They usually don’t go far from the main area of a city. Very cheap. They are painted red. One note: ensure they use the taxi metre. A 10DH taxi ride (about $1 Canadian) can turn into 50-100DH very quickly.
Taxis Blanche (White Taxis)
These white taxies are for group travel between cities and areas. Don’t be surprised if they make you wait for the taxi to fill up before departing for the destination. Ensure you settle on a price beforehand as most do not have metres.
Things To Remember
A few tips and things to remember if planning a trip to Morocco.
The border between Algeria and Morocco is closed. Do not try to sneak across by foot/car.
