Embarking on a holiday in Morocco is everyone’s perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life with its rich cultural heritage that breathes nostalgia into the minds and souls of tourists. However, would you be given an insurance that your holiday will be hassle and trouble free? To minimise the probability of being in a state of frustration at the end of your holiday, talk to a Morocco Travel Agency that has established the dos and don’ts when in Morocco.
Foremost, do travel during the months of spring when Morocco is blooming with a dazzling palette of colours and greeneries. The temperature during the months of spring provides comfort to tourists as it’s neither too hot nor cold. Being in Morocco during summer or winter could be daunting to some because temperature can be quite extreme.
Furthermore, a good Morocco Travel Agency will tell you to do try out the riads in Morocco which is basically a traditional abode built around a garden. Some places where you might want to visit to sight see some riads are at the Marrakesh, Fes and Essaouria. When you travel around Morocco, you have to keep in mind to tip at the end of a service such as at dining places, taxi drivers and bell boys as it’s a culture to Moroccans to tip. If you’re offered some mint tea by locals, please do accept it as it’s the peak of Moroccan hospitality.
However, if you’re a woman travelling in Morocco; don’t let males follow you around as they are known as hustlers there. They tend to pester foreign women who walk alone and would not leave them at all. So check with your local Morocco Travel Agency about whether or not the rule of the thumb is to emulate the dress code of the locals such as by wearing djellaba or go for the ‘westernised’ look by wearing tights and leather tops. Perhaps Moroccan men find hair sexy but women should definitely tie their hair when travelling in Morocco if they do not want to be pestered so often.
The males in Morocco do not approach women they respected and if they approach a woman, they are just showing a lack of respect to her. So if you have to ask for help, find a local woman or an elderly man as hustlers tend to be male and young.
Fret not, as you have actually gained an insight of the dos and don’ts when in Morocco. If you do plan to travel to Morocco, a local Morocco Travel Agency will definitely lead you to an unforgettable holiday which will leave you smiling for a lifetime.
