Fes, Morocco

Stroll through the covered bazaar in the heart of Fez while camels spit, children cry, and vendors beg you to buy their jewels and charms. Pick through the tacky nick-knacks to find the hidden treasure like antique necklaces and hand painted pottery for half the price you'd pay in flashy cities. Practice your bargaining skills with the locals and go as low as you can.

Admire the colours of the dying pits and tanneries while the sun beats down on Morocco’s fourth largest city and weave through crowded streets filled with animals and people. Check out the local food carts or hit a classier four star restaurants filled with rich Moroccans and tourists, and taste a bit of the country.
