FAQs & REVIEWS

Marrakech to Erg Chebbi, Things you should know

Dress Appropriately

Morocco is a conservative Muslim country, and it’s not appropriate to wear skimpy clothing. Keep your arms, shoulders, and legs covered (especially if you are a woman) to avoid any unwanted attention and conform to local norms.

Don’t walk alone at night

While walking in well-lit and busy areas can be fine, be careful walking at night. You never know what lurks around the corner in the medinas. Although the country is very safe but it’s always advisable to pay attention.

Watch the Water

Wash your hands often with soap and water, and watch out for ice, drink bottled water, and eat cooked food including fruits and vegetables to void being ill while traveling Morocco.”

A few other things to keep in mind

  • Most shops and museums are closed on Friday afternoons. It’s their holy day.
  • Almost all peoples are friendly and honest, and violent crime is very rare. However, it is wise to be careful about pickpockets and petty thievery, in the major cities.
  • Make sure you have small change with you to tip at restaurants. For example: $1 per person at local places, and $3 to $5 per person if you’re at an expensive restaurant.
  • The Atlas Mountains get really cold at night – so pack warm clothing if you’re hiking there.
