Where Should I go: Casablanca or Agadir?

Casablanca

Casablanca is so much more than a classic Bogart movie with killer one-liners. It is also the largest, most cosmopolitan city in the country of Morocco. Sitting at the economic and industrial heart of this region, Casablanca has a population of approximately four million. Brush up on your high school French before visiting this lively city as it's the main language spoken by the locals. While this is the most liberal and progressive city in Morocco, remember to be cautious in this region of the world with your western views.

Agadir

Agadir is a city with a long and tragic past. In 1960 the city suffered from an earthquake, destroying the city including the ancient Kasbah. Approximately 15,000 people were killed, 12,000 were injured and around 35,000 people were left homeless. They began rebuilding the city center on a grid system, making it easy for today's visitors to navigate and get around this city. The new city is full of boulevards with cafes and a mix of 1960s and classic Moroccan architecture. Today, the city is still growing and welcomes European vacationers to its resort destinations. Visitors appreciate the clean beaches, outstanding golf courses and luxurious health and beauty spas.
