  • Laayoune silver market popular despite cheaper imports

    (19 May 2016) LEAD IN: Laayoune's silver market is still popular despite competition from cheaper imports. The Western Saharan city is famous for its handmade jewellery. STORY-LINE: Dah Mayya works with skill on a small piece of metal. He's a craftsman in Laayoune, a Western Saharan city renowned for its silver market and handmade jewellery. The manufacturers buy raw silver from Morocco or Mauritania. Mauritanian silver tends to cost more but is considered to be better quality. "The price of raw silver sometimes decreases, sometimes increases. For a long time raw silver was very expensive. But actually now it is more available and traders buy it," he says. "We use it in traditional handicraft: rings, bracelets, earrings." Laayoune has department stores, trendy boutiques, antiqu...

Morocco Travel Guide 2016, Morocco Tourism & Vacations 2016, Morocco Trip 2016 Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Morocco is a North African country that has a coastline on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It has borders with Western Sahara to the south, Algeria to the east and the Spanish North African territories of Ceuta and Melilla on the Mediterranean coast in the north. It is just across the Strait of Gibraltar from Gibraltar. See in Morocco ================== At just a few hours from the main European cities, Morocco has everything to overwhelm you with the amazing colors, smells and sounds of Islamic Africa. Imagine bustling souqs and spice markets, stunning mosques, white-washed sea side towns and medieval city centres. With panoramic views varying from snow-covered peaks in the High Atlas to the endless sand dunes of the Sahara, no-one ever has to be bored in this beautiful country. Movie-famous Casablanca might be the most famous of Moroccan cities and is home to the huge Hassan II mosque, the second largest mosque in the world with only the Grand Mosque of Mecca surpassing it. Many travellers quickly leave this vibrant and modernist metropolis on a search for a more traditional Moroccan experience, but admiring the impressive colonial architecture, Hispano-Moorish and art-deco outlook of the city centre is actually time well spent. Marrakesh, known as the "Red City" and probably the most prominent former imperial capital, will leave you with memories to cherish for life. Spend your days wandering through the lively souqs, admiring the old gates and defensive walls, see the Saadian Tombs, the remnants of the El Badi Palace and visit the Koutoubia Mosque with its 12th century minaret. However, when evening falls make sure to head back to Jamaa el-Fnaa, the largest square in Africa, as it fills up with steam-producing food stalls. Indulge in the bustling activity there, listen to Arabic story tellers, watch magicians and Chleuh dancers. Fez, once Morocco's capital, is another gorgeous imperial city. Get lost in its lovely labyrinth of narrow Medieval streets, enjoy its huge medina, see the beautiful city gates, the ancient University of Al-Karaouine and the Bou Inania Madrasa. Also, make sure to visit a traditional leather tanning factory. The city of Meknes is often called the "Versailles of Morocco" for its beauty. Its lovely Spanish-Moorish style centre is surrounded by tall city walls with impressive gates and you'll be able to see the 17th century blend of European and Islamic cultures even today. For a more laid-back experience of city life, catch a sea breeze at Asilah or lovely Essaouira. The blue-washed town of Chefchaouen is an old time travellers' favourite and a great starting point to explore the impressive High Atlas Mountains. Climb Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in North-Africa, passing lovely adobe villages and exploring the gorgeous Ourika and Amizmiz valleys on the way. The stunning panoramic view from the top will make it worth every bit of your effort to get there. Other praised hiking routes lead through the beautiful Ameln Valley in the Anti-Atlas and the wooded Rif Mountains in the very north. Hop on a camel back for a trip through the golden Sahara sand dunes at Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga. Spend the night in a desert tent, under the incredibly starred sky. The Sahara is also accessible near the town of Zagora; it's easier to get to from Marrakech but doesn't have the imposing dunes of Erg Chebbi. Somewhat less easy to reach but therefor also less crowded are the dunes of Erg Chigaga near M'hamid. On your way to the desert, make sure not to miss the stunning Todra gorge near Tinghir. The ancient fortified city of Aït-Benhaddou is another must-see sight. Although rainstorms damage the mud-brick kasbahs time and again, this mostly abandoned village remains an impressive sight and has been the decor for a range of movies, including Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator. Do in Morocco ================ Hammams ======== There are two types of Hammam (steam baths) across Morocco. The first is the tourist hammam, where you can go and be pampered and scrubbed by an experienced staff member. As these are promoted only to tourists they are the more expensive option with pricing usually around DH 150 for a hammam. They can not be technically referred to as a proper hammam, but they are nonetheless enjoyable, especially for the timid. Your hotel can recommend a good one. The second option is to visit a "popular" Hammam. Popular hammams are the places where the locals go. Ask the staff at your hotel where they would go.

10 Unusual Destinations For Your Holiday How Come? What summer has arrived and do not know what to do with your holiday? What's so many known sites that none attracts you most? Have you seen many times the Eiffel Tower in movies and series and even calls you see her? Do not want to travel to Japan because it is a destination too mainstream?Do not hesitate!Take a plane and get ready for the 10 strangest destinations this summer season! 10- Tibet Yes, it's not the weirdest destination, and less since popularized with Richard Gere and the film Seven Years in Tibet, but has not lost a bit of an exotic, strange, very unique and different beauty. 9. The Gates of Hell (Turkmenistan) We know you'd never raised a holiday in Turkmenistan, and much less in Kara-Kum desert, but maybe change your mind.... 8. The Skinwalker Ranch (United States) It's not the nicest place in the world, nor has the greatest vegetation and no more monuments. However, it is one of the most curious and unusual destinations in the world, perfect for those who like to ride the Mystery Ship. 7. Transylvania Yes, where Count Dracula lived ... but much more! Located in the center of Romania, this region is marked by Bran Castle, the residence of Count Dracula (Vlad Tepes) 6. Der Eiserne Mann (Germany) Known as Iron Man (yes, like the Marvel), this is an ironwood located in Germany. 5. Ljubljana If only because your friends ask you what the hell you're talking worth going to the capital of Slovenia, in the region of Central Slovenia. 4. Eye of Africa (Mauritania) The Eye of Africa extends over 40 km in diameter in the Sahara Desert, as part of Mauritania, and from heaven looks like an eye. In fact, his "pupil" are more than three square kilometers. 3. Pamukkale (Turkey) Turkey is associated in our minds with kebabs and durums, but the truth is that there are some wonders that can only be seen there, as the pools of Pamukkale, strange and beautiful, they deserve a trip just to see them. 2. The Nine Hells of Beppu (Japan) Beppu is located on the Japanese island of Kyushu, and is the second largest place where we can see geothermal waters in the world. 1. Niagara Falls (between Brazil and Paraguay) Eye to the data: 49554.481 liters fall from these falls ... Every second !! To give us an idea, Niagara Falls drop about two million every second, making these the largest waterfalls in the world (in terms of volume of water, at least).

Generally, holidays are intended to allow individuals to celebrate or commemorate an event or tradition of cultural or religious significance. Holidays may be designated by governments, religious institutions, or other groups or organizations. The degree to which normal activities are reduced by a holiday may depend on local laws, customs, the type of job being held or even personal choices. The concept of holidays has most often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities. In many societies there are important distinctions between holidays designated by governments and holidays designated by religious institutions. For example, in many predominantly Christian nations, government-designed holidays may center on Christian holidays, though non-Christians may instead observe religious holidays associated with their faith. In some cases, a holiday may only be nominally observed. For example, many Jews in the Americas and Europe treat the relatively minor Jewish holiday of Hanukkah as a "working holiday", changing very little of their daily routines for this day. The word "holiday" has some variance in meaning across different locales. In North America the word refers to widely observed days of rest and recreation, whereas in the U.K. and many Commonwealth nations the word refers to any extended period of recreation. It is this first, more restricted sense of the word that concerns this article. Many holidays are linked to faiths and religions (see etymology above). Christian holidays are defined as part of the liturgical year, the chief ones being Easter and Christmas. The Orthodox Christian and Western-Roman Catholic patronal feast day or "name day" are celebrated in each place's patron saint's day, according to the Calendar of saints. Jehovah's Witnesses annually commemorate "The Memorial of Jesus Christ's Death", but do not celebrate other holidays with any religious significance such as Easter, Christmas or New Year's. This holds especially true for those holidays that have combined and absorbed rituals, overtones or practices from non-Christian beliefs into the celebration, as well as those holidays that distract from or replace the worship of Jehovah. In Islam, the largest holidays are Eid ul-Fitr (immediately after Ramadan) and Eid al-Adha (at the end of the Hajj). Ahmadi Muslims additionally celebrate Promised Messiah Day, Promised Reformer Day, and Khilafat Day, but contrary to popular belief, neither are regarded as holidays. Hindus, Jains and Sikhs observe several holidays, one of the largest being Diwali (Festival of Light). Japanese holidays contain references to several different faiths and beliefs. Celtic, Norse, and Neopagan holidays follow the order of the Wheel of the Year. Some are closely linked to Swedish festivities. The Bahá'í Faith observes holidays as defined by the Bahá'í calendar. Jews have two holiday seasons: the Spring Feasts of Pesach (Passover) and Shavuot (Weeks, called Pentecost in Greek); and the Fall Feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Tabernacles), and Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day of Assembly).

(19 May 2016) LEAD IN: Laayoune's silver market is still popular despite competition from cheaper imports. The Western Saharan city is famous for its handmade jewellery. STORY-LINE: Dah Mayya works with skill on a small piece of metal. He's a craftsman in Laayoune, a Western Saharan city renowned for its silver market and handmade jewellery. The manufacturers buy raw silver from Morocco or Mauritania. Mauritanian silver tends to cost more but is considered to be better quality. "The price of raw silver sometimes decreases, sometimes increases. For a long time raw silver was very expensive. But actually now it is more available and traders buy it," he says. "We use it in traditional handicraft: rings, bracelets, earrings." Laayoune has department stores, trendy boutiques, antique shops and outdoor markets. And its silver market attracts both locals and tourists. But trade is often conducted at night, when the air cools and customers can avoid the high daytime temperatures. Shoppers can browse watches, bracelets and even coffee pots. But traders says business is very seasonal. "The demand from customers is higher in the holidays when tourism is here or in the summer period of ceremonies. Also during feasts," says Hassan Ijremki, a silver goods dealer. "In the other months the demand is not high, generally. Trade does not die, it just becomes tired." These handmade goods face stiff competition from imported items manufactured using more modern methods. Typically brought in from Turkey, they can cost two-thirds of the price of pieces made in Laayoune. But the home grown silverware is still cheaper than gold products which fetch 398 Moroccan Dirhams (14 US dollars) a gramme. "Here, women prefer silver to gold and they use it in ceremonies, weddings, feasts," says Zahra Jari, a customer from Laayoune. "Silver prices differ. There is the expensive and the less expensive silver. Everybody buys according to his or her capabilities." Jewellery sparkles on the shelves of the silver market. French tourist Houda Nour browses the items, selecting some to try. She comes here to buy presents for friends and products to decorate her house. "I like this metal and I also like this culture," she says.
