New Highway opening and Travel time between Tangier and Agadir

With the official opening of the new highway Marrakech - Agadir in June 2010, Morocco is currently finalizing its motorway network. More than any other highways carried out previously, the axis Agadir, Marrakech, with a length of 140 miles / 225 km, is of great importance in terms of economic benefits. The new highway allows reaching southern Morocco from Tangier located in northern Morocco in record time. Indeed, the travel time between Tangier and the capital of the Souss region Agadir is now 7 hours instead of 14 hours before the new highway. Due to the high volume of traffic to Tangier, Moroccan gateway to Europe, transporters, Moroccan European resident, tourists, and exporters, particularly those of fruits and vegetables and seafood from the southern region have a valid reason to celebrate.

The impact on tourist flows in the region is not to be overlooked because the route between Marrakesh and Agadir will last just over two hours. In addition, drivers can now avoid the multiple spots of the national road 170 miles / 273 km long. Many visitors stay in one of the two cities Marrakesh or Agadir were reluctant previously to do the trip in either direction, precisely because of the risk of traffic accidents that are recurrent in this mountainous region of Agadir, known previously with its poor roads condition. This new high way addition also serves the most urban areas between the two cities, namely Imintanout, Chichaoua and Amskroud.

Re: Couscous: A Moroccan Tradition
Scott, Your blog bought back some nostalgic memories for me. When I go traveling, its all about the food and the memories that are triggered when I try and re-create a dish i stumbled upon on my travels(without much success).

It was just the other night that I was paging through my album, the photos depicting the utter chaos of the market streets and the beautiful colors on display. It was a visual spectacle. The food was a gastronomic spectacle. My personal favorite dish while visiting Morocco was the lamb tagine with dates. The tenderness of the lamb coupled with the sweetness of the dates was a mere delight and surprise to my palate. Thank you for helping me relive my Morocco experience. Morocco is a must-see travel destination and for more information visit www.essentialtravel.co.uk/magazine/country-guides/morocco/travel-to-morocco.asp for some great travel tips and facts about Morocco.
