Rabat - The Mercedes-Benz Great Overland Adventure recommended six Moroccan cities one should visit during their trip to Morocco. The Great Overland Adventure published a gallery of photos and videos exploring the beauty of six Moroccan cities and regions on their website GLA is driving their Mercedes-Benz all over the world on a trip to test the endurance of their vehicles. They currently have traveled around 25,000 miles. The list was published, along with a diary , to document their experiences in Morocco. Under the title “#GLAadventure Picks: 6 Places in Africa You Should Visit Before You Die,” GLA ranked Tangier as the top Moroccan city one must visit. Tangier When in Tangier, GLA recommended tourists to visit the Medina, Kasbah - Fort, and Café Hafa as popular spots to visit when in the area. GLA also recommended Cafe Hafa for its historical attraction and mint tea. "Writers like William Burroughs and Paul Bowles used to chill at this cafe once upon a time," the GLA website said. Tangier is followed by the Sahara Desert, then Marrakech, Taroudant, Casablanca and Guelmim came in last. Merzouga Merzouga is a small Saharan village located in the southeast of Morocco. Merzouga is home to Erg Chebbi , one of the largest ergs in Morocco. Merzouga is one of the best tourist destinations in Morocco, with an ideal desert for sand lovers and those travelers who love to observe the sun rising over sand dunes for a very majestic moment. "We bet the scenic wonders of the Sahara will not just be a feast for your eyes, but also lift your spirits," GLA wrote. Marrakech Marrakech is an international tourist destination. It was ranked third place by GLA. The GLA team said that the best part about the city is that “you'll still find the 25 year old W123 Merc taxis with OM616 diesel engines.” GLA suggests visiting “the colorful street food of Marrakesh,” adding that “a visit to the main square is a must.” Taroudannt Taroudannt, well known as little Marrakech, is a beautiful old city about 80 kilometers away from Agadir. GLA said that among the things that make the city so special is the fact that “it is one of the few places where you'll find the cute old two stroke mopeds.” Casablanca Casablanca, Morocco’s economic capital and Africa’s financial and economic hub, was ranked in at fifth place. GLA said that “Casablanca will leave you spellbound!” Guelmim Guelmim, known as the gate of the mighty Sahara, is a very calm city with its vast desert and friendly atmosphere. GLAa said that Guelmim's gate "is a reminder why this is one of the most admired places around the world." The trip is being used to promote Mercedes-Benz cars as “they will be on-road for six months and travel across various countries with different weather conditions,” the GLA organizers said. “The epic drive will start from the Mercedes-Benz production plant at Chakan, Pune and will cover six continents, 17 countries, and clock more than 50,000 kilometers before culminating in Pune after six months,” “The ride will flag off this July and the India-made #GLA will travel through Europe, Northern and South Africa, North and South America, Australia and Asia. The tour will touch upon some of the most iconic routes in the world and will pay tribute to those who pioneered this form of adventure,” GLAadventure added.
