5 Things You Must Know Before You Visit Morocco

Tourists are increasing in number every year in Morocco. The primary reason is that Morocco is considered one of the world’s most beautiful countries. But we recommend that you consider some essential tips if you are a woman before you plan your trip. Read on to learn more about tips that can help you set realistic expectations before the big day.

1. Dress Appropriately

You don’t have to worry about your outfit if you are a man. If you are a woman, however, you need to dress conservatively. If you want to avoid unwanted attention, you may want to cover yourself up as much as possible.

In addition to this, if you wish to visit mosques, we recommend that you cover yourself down to your ankles. You may also wish to keep a shawl with you.

2. Keep Plenty of Local Cash

In most big shops, you can use your credit card to make purchases. However, you will have to pay in the local currency at street vendors and small markets. We recommend exchanging at least 100 euros per day to be on the safer side.

3. Don’t Rely On ATMs

If possible, you might want to exchange enough money. The good news is that you can exchange your currency at the front desk of your hotel. ATMs in Morocco tend to run out quickly. If you think you can use travelers’ checks, you should reconsider. Cashing your travelers’ cheques in Morocco will be difficult.

4. Don’t Ask For A Change

Most Moroccan taxi drivers do not have a change in Morocco, so keep a few coins in your pocket in case you don’t want to be ripped off. However, coins cannot be exchanged when you leave Morocco, so you may have to spend them on living expenses.

5. You Should Improve Your Bargaining Skills

If you’re planning to buy something in a big market, you’ll need to learn how to bargain. In other words, you’ll need to learn how to bargain if you want to get the best deal. Selling is like a national sport in Morocco, and bargaining is part of their culture as well.

Ideally, you should pay between 25 and 50% less than the asking price. Therefore, you may want to set a budget before bargaining with the seller. If they won’t agree on a price, walk away. Most sellers will contact you right away.
