Nearly all of the Muslim countries you’d want to visit have ways for you to drink; you just need to follow an often confusing set of laws to...

How to haggle in Morocco’s markets

The Moroccan souk , or marketplace, is heaven for the shopaholic. Marrakech, Fez, Tangier, and every other major Moroccan city have extensive markets, usually packed within the walls of a medina, or old city, where cars are banned and foot traffic is dense. Sellers cram themselves into countless alcoves along snaking walkways. Colorful goods hang overhead, burst from every corner, overwhelm the eye. Merchants clamor for attention from passersby, especially anyone who looks foreign with money t...

Traditional Moroccan flatbreads

A bread-loving tourist does not lack for destinations.

With all of these options, it would be easy to miss Morocco on a global tour of carbohydrates. The North African nation is known for its tagines and its mint tea but not for its leavened products.
