Casablanca is an old favorite among adventure travelers, and a must-see when visiting Morocco. The city is an important travel hub, with many tourists spending at least a couple of night while passing through. Many of the hotels in Casablanca are located near Mohamed V Airport
, which is the most important gateway into Morocco. Arriving into Casablanca by train is possible from other cities in Morocco, especially Rabat and Fez.
One of the most important landmarks in Casablanca is certainly the King Hassan II Mosque
. This mosque is the third largest in the world, with a soaring minaret that seems to reach the sky. It is also open to people of all faiths, a very unique quality in Morocco and much of the Muslim world. While this mosque is relatively new, travelers to Casablanca will also find exploring the walled old city, known as the medina, a worthwhile experience. br>
While visiting Morocco, of course a hammam, or Turkish bath, is an experience not to be missed. Just like most cities in this region, Casablanca has its fair share of such facilities, one of them being the old and popular Hammam Ziani
. This is located in the Casablanca city center, where there is a wide selection of hotels within easy reach of this and many other attractions.
