Morocco
How can you see the highlights of this country in only 10 days without renting a car or enduring a tour bus? And without breaking your travel budget?  Simple. Go by train. It is one of Morocco's best kept travel secrets.

Just step off your plane in Casablanca, descend a set of escalators (within the airport) and hop on a train.  Easy. And you're on your way.  The trains are clean, efficient and affordable.

From Casablanca's airport, we first traveled by train to Marrakesh - spent three nights - then headed off for a 2-night stay in Moulay Idriss/Volubilis (via the train to Meknes and a shared taxi to Moulay Idriss), then on to Fes (by train from Meknes) for three nights and finally our last day/night in Rabat (by train from Fes) before arriving in Casablanca(from Rabat by train) to catch our homeward-bound plane.

Add on side trips if you have more time; subtract a destination if time is tight.  Either way, train travel in Morocco is a no-brainer. A winning strategy for newbies or veteran world wanderers.
