If you're a beach person, definitely go to Malta. Situated off the coast of Sicily, the officially-named 'Republic of Malta' is a small island, so it has tons and tons of beautiful beaches to choose from! In fact, Malta's beaches are one of the reasons this destination is so popular among tourists.
There is no shortage of aquatic activities to choose from in Malta. You can go paragliding, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, snorkeling, or take a Malta Diving tour and explore Malta's diverse underwater world of reefs, caves, and wrecks.
Malta is not all just fun and sun, though. Malta Sightseeing Tours will open your eyes to all there is to see and do on this memorable island - Malta possesses a rich cultural history that has rendered it a virtual open air museum.
Malta tours will reveal some of the oldest known structures to mankind. As a Malta tourist, be sure to check out Hypogeum, a UNESCO world heritage site. This temple was discovered in 1902 when a stonemason uncovered the remains of over 7,000 people, dating back to 3600 BC, while he was laying the foundations for a house.

If you're more of a city person (the idea of sitting on a beach all day bores you) then head to Marrakech. With so many things to do in Marrakech, boredom will certainly not be one of the sentiments you experience during this trip!
From the beautifully-decorated riads hidden behind inconspicuous doors in dusty alleys, to the wonderfully chaotic and colourful souks, Marrakech is just so wonderfully different. This city simply exudes an exotic feel.
If you're looking for what to do in Marrakech, you won't have to look for long. Chances are you'll end up at the Djemma el Fna square, located in the Medina (or old quarter of Marrakech), without even trying. Here, snake charmers and performers will enchant you while henna artists and vendors try to befriend you.
Sightseeing in Marrakech will undoubtedly be a jam-packed activity. The Koutoubia Mosque, Yves Saint Laurent's Jardin Majorelle, the Marrakech Museum, and the Palais de la Bahia are only a few of things you must see in Marrakech. And if you have any energy left, the nightlife in Marrakech can be quite lively, if you're willing to look for it.
So, take one of many Malta tours and lounge about on the beach in between visits to some amazing historical sights or go to Marrakech and wonder at the beauty of its culture. Either way, a marvelously exotic vacation is only a few hours away.
