10. Tetouan, Morocco (Photo by DeAgostini/Getty Images) |
Travel north and visit the jewel of a town, Tetouan. Located at the foot of the Rif Mountains and a few miles from the Sea, Tetouan has an air of authenticity of real Morocco. Though the town has been updated in the last decades, it still feels like it’s retained its character-- despite the local bus stations, public gardens, and restorations. The Medina of Tetouan, Morocco, photographed here, is a protected UNESCO world heritage site.

From 1912 until 1956 Tetouan was the capital of what was known as Spanish Morocco, which encompassed much of northern part of the country. This and the town’s long relationship with the southern Spanish province of Andalucia have left it with a Hispano-Moorish character that is unique in Morocco. This unique blend of styles is reflected in what’s been maintained as the Spanish part of the city, Ensanche. This street scene in the medina market in Tetouan highlights some of the city's authentic flare.

Not only is it beautiful, but the Maldives, a tropical island nation at the heart of the Indian Ocean, is hot all year round with an annual average temperature around 30C. There’s plenty of opportunities for beach bumming, roughing it, living the high life, and engaging in watersports. This photo of the Moofushi Resort's wellness center villas on the water captures the potential for luxury vacationing.
