Three million tourists have visited Morocco over the first four months of 2017.


Tourism in Morocco is only going in one direction, and after news last month that March 2017’s numbers were up 3.7% over the same period last year, even more promising statistics are being released.

The country is now reporting that there has been a ten percent increase of visitors during 2017’s first four months of the year compared to 2016.

April itself saw an increase of foreign tourists hitting 18 percent, and The General Directorate for National Security have released figures stating that the number of tourists from the US, Spain, Germany, Belgium, and Italy saw a rise of 43, 26, 22, 21, and 16 percent, respectively.

This all comes together to form the three million figure of tourists arriving to the country, and is through to be the result of increasing interest from both traditional and emerging markets.

For those looking for over 50’s singles holidays, Morocco would certainly be a fine choice indeed. Beyond paying a visit to the Saadian Tombs in Marrakech — a 16th century burial ground of the Saadian dynasty – there are numerous sites and attractions to be excited by.

One of the country’s most prised sites is the Roman ruin of Volubilis. A real treat for history lovers, the site is comprised of ancient columns, temple remnants, and some truly remarkable mosaics. Its scenic hilltop location only adds to the allure.
