Morocco, it’s more than a top soccer team

We know Morocco has a great soccer team after their exploits in the World Cup in Qatar – losing narrowly to France in the semi-finals – but it’s also a fabulous tourist destination, says Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures.

G Adventures has included Morocco among the places travellers should visit in 2023 “to both save on costs and give back”.

“These places offer affordability and added value in-destination, while still giving back to the local communities that are trying to revive – and ultimately thrive – following the impact of the pandemic on the international tourism industry,” Boon Tip adds.

“Forever photogenic” Morocco is chosen for its excellent value on the ground and attractive price point as well as its easy access from European hubs.

Also, on G Adventures’ great value-and-give-back playlist for 2023 are Sri Lanka, Turkey, Japan, Peru, Thailand (“perfect for students and young people to hit up Southeast Asia, and support locally-owned hostels along the way on a 'Roamies' trip”), Mexico, South Africa and Egypt.

Poon Tip says while 2023 is set to be the year of full recovery for travel businesses, “it's important travel companies keep their eye on the ball when it comes to sustainability”.

“Travellers have changed what they are looking for in terms of meaningful experiences supporting local people and the environment – travel is building back differently, and better. It's going to be so important to continue with that focus no matter what happens economically this year.”
