The 5 Most Instagrammable Places in Morocco
1. Sahara Desert Obviously, first up on the list has to be the Sahara Desert and the best time for picture taking is at sunset or sunrise. However, timing is not as important as the other locations on this list due to the fact that you do not have to worry about tourists getting in the way of your picture during peak times because the desert spans 5.6 million square miles. The most popular Sahara Desert experiences visit the dunes of Erg Chebbi, close to the town of Merzouga, or Erg Chigaga, near the town of Zagora. Although day tours are possible, it is best to opt for an overnight camping excursion trekking along ancient trade routes on a camel and sleeping under the stars.
