OHMYGOSSIP starts collaboration with Moroccan National Tourist Office – Press trip to Morocco, Agadir
OHMYGOSSIP – I am very proud and glad to announce that #OHMYGOSSIP starts collaboration with Moroccan Ministry and Government Tourist Office!
Last year I began cooperation with Israel Ministry of Tourism & Israel Government Tourist Office Nordics! I´ve been one of the Israel´s “media ambassadors” here in the Nordics over a year! This year I am honored to work also with Moroccan National Tourist Board & Moroccan Goverment Tourist Office to promote #VisitMorocco in my OHMYGOSSIP- websites!!!
Moroccan National Tourist Office will organize for me and my team a complimentary personal press trips to Morocco and will show us around. As the guests of Moroccan Ministry of Tourism, we will be provided with flights, hotel accommodation, with breakfasts and dinners in restaurants, with transport and travel guides.
The first trip will take me to Agadir – a very important centre for tourism to Morocco, and the city is the most important fishing port in the country. Agadir is a major city in Morocco, located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean near the foot of the Atlas Mountains, just north of the point where the Sous River flows into the ocean. It is at a distance of 508 km to the south of Casablanca. It is the capital of the Agadir-Ida Ou Tanane Prefecture and of the Souss-Massa economic region. The city was destroyed by an earthquake in 1960; it has been completely rebuilt with mandatory seismic standards. It is now the largest seaside resort in Morocco, where foreign tourists and many residents are attracted by an unusually mild year-round climate. Since 2010 it has been well served by low-cost flights and a motorway from Tangier. The city attracts all walks of life; it has had an annual growth rate of over 6% per year in housing demand while housing production barely exceeds 3.4%.
Agadir is filled with great hotels. We will stay in 5star “Atlantic Palace Agadir Golf Thalasso & Casino Resort” (atlanticpalace.com)! Set in the centre of Agadir, this hotel features an on-site casino as well as a private beach. It features a golf course, a sauna, a beauty centre and a Turkish steam bath. This modern Agadir hotel provides free Wi-Fi and outdoor tennis courts. It includes family-friendly amenities, with room layouts and services for families of any size, as well as a kids pool and a kids club. The peaceful rooms offer garden or pool views, and each is equipped with a private bathroom, a flat-screen TV and a mini bar. They feature wireless internet access, a telephone and heating. Atlantic Palace Agadir features both a restaurant and a bar where guests are able to relax at the end of the day. Room service is provided around the clock, and a wide selection of restaurants and cafés can also be found close by. Atlantic Palace Agadir Golf Thalasso & Casino Resort is ideally located for exploring Agadir with Casino le Mirage within walking distance. Agadir Stadium and Inezgane are only an easy drive from the hotel.

Morocco, officially known as the Kingdom of Morocco, is a sovereign country located in the Maghreb region of North Africa. Geographically, Morocco is characterized by a rugged mountainous interior and large portions of desert. It has Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. Morocco has a population of over 33.8 million and an area of 446,550 km2 (172,410 sq mi). Its capital is Rabat, and the largest city is Casablanca. Other major cities include Marrakesh, Tangier, Tetouan, Salé, Fes, Agadir, Meknes, Oujda, Kenitra, and Nador. A historically prominent regional power, Morocco has a history of independence not shared by its neighbours. Its distinct culture is a blend of Arab, indigenous Berber, Sub-Saharan African, and European influences.
Morocco claims the non-self-governing territory of Western Sahara as its Southern Provinces. Morocco annexed the territory in 1975, leading to a guerrilla war with indigenous forces until a cease-fire in 1991. Peace processes have thus far failed to break the political deadlock.
Morocco is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament. The King of Morocco holds vast executive and legislative powers, especially over the military, foreign policy and religious affairs. Executive power is exercised by the government, while legislative power is vested in both the government and the two chambers of parliament, the Assembly of Representatives and the Assembly of Councillors. The king can issue decrees called dahirs which have the force of law. He can also dissolve the parliament after consulting the Prime Minister and the president of the Constitutional court.
Morocco’s predominant religion is Islam, and the official languages are Arabic and Tamazight. Moroccan dialect, referred to as Darija, and French are also widely spoken. Morocco is an influential member of the Arab League and a part of the Union for the Mediterranean. It has the fifth largest economy of Africa.
