Hi Just a few pointers from my recent Trip to Morocco. Won't try to bore you to death, but will try to outline some things I thought were good and bad.
You will always find Beggars & Hawkers wherever you go in this world, Morocco is no exception.
To give or not to give can be a tough decision, and not one I can make for you.
All I would say is that I believe most of the people I saw begging in Morocco looked as though they were genuine and I did give some money now and then, but tried not to do it too often.
Anybody travelling to Morocco should be aware that this is a muslim country, with muslim values and traditions.
In the More tourist resorts on the coast things are a little more relaxed, but inland in the places that do not see many visitors it would be wise to be respectful of the culture and beliefs of these people. Over 98% of the population are Muslim, the majority of them being quite devout. As with any country you visit you should always show the upmost respect for the local people and their way of life. Foe example it would not be prudent for a woman to walk around showing to much bare flesh, niether is it appreciated when men wear shorts. Never attempt to look around a mosque in other than conservative dress.
- Pros:A place that grows on you if you give it time.
- Cons:If you can't deal with hustlers & hawkers it's not for you!
- In a nutshell:Worth the Trip and a really nice place to chill out!
Everybody in Morocco drinks mint Tea. it's refreshing, if a little sweet. You must try it at least once, though 9 times... more travel advice
