The north of the Kingdom attracts more and more tourists. In Tangier, more than one million tourist overnight stays were registered for the first time, writes L'Economiste.

This involved a total of 1.26 million overnight stays, a growth of 25%. These tourists are not only limited to Tangier, but also visit neighboring cities such as Tetouan and Chefchaouen. A positive growth for the entire region.
