Morocco Travel Tips and Insight
- Dress appropriately. Morocco is a conservative country, so it is important to cover your shoulders and upper arms, cleavage, and knees. Cover your head with a scarf inside mosques. Wearing sunglasses also tends to deflect unwanted attention.
- If you are shopping in the markets or medinas, learn to haggle. Haggling is an integral part of Moroccan culture and is expected in most places.
- Avoid going anywhere with locals offering free tours — you may end up completely lost and pressed to spend money. Explore on your own or hire a guide from a reputable company.
