Morocco emergesAccording to a ranking by Go4travel, a website for tourist services in Portugal, Morocco has emerged as the top tourist destination for Portuguese travelers in 2016.

 
According to a statement released on Friday by the delegation of the Moroccan National Tourist Office (ONMT) to Portugal, Morocco ranks first in the top 10 of Go4travel’s list of trendy tourist destinations for Portuguese travelers.

 
The same source said that the ranking linked Morocco’s top spot among in vogue tourist destinations for Portuguese travelers to a number of reasons including geographical proximity and the high quality services offered by Morocco’s tourism industry.

 

The Portuguese consider the Kingdom “a perfect destination, which is nearby and transports them to a world of Arabian nights.”

 
According to Go4travel as reported in the ONMT statement, cultural events like “the Gnaoua and World Music Festival of Essaouira—which this year will take place from May 12 to 15—are also reasons that attract Portuguese to Morocco.

 
Vitor Filipe, chairman of Go4travel said that this classification “is the result of an internal consultation with 38 shareholders of the Group which aims to create a list of inspiring destinations for 2016 that will be the key travel trends for this year.”

 
Morocco is followed by Brazil (2nd), Italy (3rd) and Mozambique, which came in fourth place in the ranking.

 

In the same ranking, Spain occupies 6th place, while Madeira, Azores and Croatia ranked 7th, 9th and 10th respectively.
