Fes, Morocco, is the second-largest city in Morocco after Casablanca. It’s located northeast of the Atlas Mountains and has easy accessibility to the other major cities of Morocco.
Begin the morning with a stroll around The Royal Palace. Travelers are not permitted to enter the Fes Royal Palace but it’s a great place to stop for a photo shoot. There are seven gates to the palace, each beautifully designed. Be sure to not take pictures of the guards because that will lead to legal troubles.
Grab breakfast at Made in M-Fes. This quick stop is a hidden gem in the city. All of the food is inexpensive, and it won’t cost more than $10 for a breakfast pastry and coffee.
Nearby is the Jewish Quarter. This area used to be home to thousands of Jewish people but there are no longer as many. Still, there are many remnants of the religion. Meet members of the community by attending a free service at the synagogue.
Enjoy a traditional Fes meal made from fresh ingredients at the Riad Rcif. They serve large portions and dessert as well. Plan to spend no more than $15 per person.
After lunch, take a stroll through the well-kept Jardin Jnan Sbil. It’s located in the middle of busy streets but once you’re inside the park the rest of the world fades away.
For dinner with a view, dine at Riad Andalib. It’s a beautifully decorated rooftop terrace where diners can watch the sunset while chatting over a plate of vegetable cous. It’s more expensive here so plan to spend $30 per person.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
