Bordering with Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea make this country so exotic to visit by everyone and surely it has beautiful culture that you must see.

How to Fly to Morocco
When you are in Asia than one good way is to fly to Morocco from Singapore even you may find other closest to go there for sure. Jetradar allow you to find various air flight rates to Morocco and by its new feature than it will compare the price among other platforms.
Changi Singapore is one great airport where you can bet for your joyful waiting, by the way I’ve been stuck for 18 hours in Changi following my pre wedding in Maldives back few years ago and when I stop at one of Burger King restaurant than no one kick me out from the restaurant, all the staff are so welcoming and used to serve travelers just like us.
There are tons of cafes, bistro, or restaurant that you can stop and once you get bored than koi pond or even x-box game center will be your best spot to stopping by.
My favorite place to eat in Changi is Kopi Tiam food court where you also can choose the 4 fingers crispy chicken at its nearby side. Just go to T3 and down to B2 floor with the panoramic elevator than you will see huge food court where people even pilot and stewardess are get some meals.
Air France, Royal Air Maroc, KLM, and Turkish Airlines are four most favorite company that fly to Morocco periodically even sometimes you will have few hours of transit in Amsterdam or Paris. To get the best rate than I suggest you to book your air ticket at least 2 months before your departure.

Every details on this hotel is finished with love and come in one single purposes, to satisfy your stay! A great hospitality services like is really matter if you gonna celebrate your big day or having my photo tour of pre wedding in Morocco.
2 – The Sahara Desert
What you can asking more for visiting Morocco except seeing the most incredible Sahara Desert? as a largest hot desert in North Africa with surface area of 9.400.000 square kilometers it covered parts of Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Sudan, Tunisia.
Sahara bordered by Atlantic Ocean on the western edge, Atlas Mountain and Mediterranean Sea on the North, the beautiful Red Sea on the east and Sudan and Niger River’s Valley on the South.
At the beginning Sahara used to be lush region with many plants and animals but it dry up around 4000 years ago due to gradual change. At this time if you visiting Sahara than you will see the sand dunes, sand seas, gravel plains, stone plateau and even a dry valleys.
Even Sahara become one of deadliest area but the amazing thing is now you even can stay there and enjoying the beautiful starry night and the magnificent surrounding. One of the best place to stay in right in the middle of the desert is Erg Chegaga Luxury Lodge, Mhamid that located 60 km from Mhamid El Ghizlane Village.
Once you book this lodge than you will stay in a tent featured with bathroom compliment with bath tub, shower, and toilet. Its restaurant will serve Moroccan specialties even you may join a cooking class on it.
The most favorite pre wedding in Morocco itinerary that you can join through my studio is visiting Marrakesh and joining a camel tour to the Sahara and stay for 1 night in Erg Chagaga.
3 – Moroccan Cuisine
When I travel for photo shoot than having fun together with my couple during lunch and dinner is my favorite time, it’s way better than just ordinary photo shoot when the photographer and couple just meet, shoot, and done. I’m not working on that way cause my priority is the connection between me and my couple.
Photography is a journey and once I can’t flow with my couple than great pictures never come, that’s how I shoot!
There is no more question for food hunter like you to not try the best and authentic Moroccan cuisine. Zaalouk, Fish Chermoula, Harira, till Pastilla the authentic chicken or pigeon pie are 5 cuisines that you can’t miss.
