The number of Chinese tourists visiting Morocco has reached 118,000 in 2017. Since King Mohammed VI’s decision to grant Chinese citizens visa-free access from June 1, 2016, Morocco has witnessed remarkable increase in the number of Chinese tourists, which used to be no more than 20,000 each year.

This “farthest land of the setting sun” is rich in contrasts, a destination that beckons you to discover two millennia of history.
