Casablanca is Morocco’s biggest city containing the main port which translates into quite some gritty and industrial-looking neighborhoods.
But Casablanca is also the most international of Morocco’s cities, with nightclubs, restaurants chains and high end boutiques.
Casablanca is frequently the first stop for international passengers flying in from afar, and the city is essentially used as a transit point.
Casablanca has both the advantages and inconvenient of a typical huge North African city and economic capital.
There are more than 4 million residents in the city, and it’s the largest port in North Africa.
There’s a huge quantity of money here and plenty of places to spend it, but there’s also lots of deficiency.
Casablanca has high end boutiques, an upcoming contemporary arts scene, wonderfully restored French buildings, high-quality markets and an authentic old part of town.
But it’s an urban spread out and much of it is not so good to look at.
