Capital of Morocco, known to be boring but if you like green and clean cities where you can still live and work then it’s the place to be. My favorite place is the Kasbah des Oudayas, you can roam around the gardens where cats chill all day and sip some hot mint tea in the Cafe Maure with a picturesque view of the Oued Bouregreg, separating the cities of Rabat and Sale.

When moving to the city of Rabat, know the beach is very close and the food is delicious. Although the city is small, there is a lot to do like going to the park and trying out different restaurants. It is a historic city and is a UNESCO world heritage site.

I really liked living there because of the different places you can visit with family and friend like cafes and traditional or historical places.

Rabat is a beautiful city. It is the capital of Morocco. It is in the west coast. The weather in Rabat is nice. It is warm in winter and cool in summer. There are plenty of places to see; for example, one can go to the Casbah by the ocean and enjoy the soft breeze.

Rabat is a pleasant surprise and worthy of a visit. The major sights can easily be covered in a day but that won’t allow time to sit in coffee shops, to wander through the medina or along by the river or to enjoy a restaurant or two in the evenings.

He should know how to speak Arabic very well and our native language “Darija.” Knowing how to speak French also helps in my city because we learned French when we were kids in school.
