Casablanca is a large industrial city in Morocco. It sits on the western coast of the country on the Atlantic Ocean, southwest of the Strait of Gibraltar.
Casablanca has a great variety of dancing and Jazz bars, and a few beach resorts are close by, including the Riad Salam Hotel.
Casablanca has a lot to offer to an architecture buff. The combination of old style French buildings and an array of types of Arabic architecture can fill multiple days with sightseeing. There are multiple popular museums, including Villa des Arts and the Museum of Moroccan Judaism of Casablanca.
Domestic trains leave and arrive at Casablanca Voyagers station and service Marrakech and Fes as well as other stops en route to the cities.
Mohammed V International Airport (airport code CMN) is Casablanca’s main airport. It is located just under 26 kilometres south-east of the city, but bus service is available as transportation to the airport from the city centre.
Mohammed V International Airport serves the most passengers each year of any airport in Morocco, reaching almost 6.5 million in 2009. Almost 70,000 flights took off in the same year. Twenty-six airlines fly into and out of Casablanca’s airport, four of which use the airport as their main hub.
