Marrakesh Warnings Or Dangers Tips by mvtouring
Marrakesh Warnings and Dangers: 95 reviews and 71 photos
Taking pictures of a woman, especially her face is a sin in a muslim religion, be recpective of it.
To avoid any problems rather ask the ladies permission before taking their pics especially when they are accompanied by men. This way you will avoid uneccesary problems for yourself.
These two presented themselves and said we could take a pic of the woman, who it turned out to be a male dressed up like a female.
There are many beautiful, exotic flowers growing in Marrakech, mainly in public gardens.
Never pick them as it is strictly forbidden and punishable by jail sentence.
I have been told that the Moroccan jails are not really a place where you would like to spend any time, not even as a guess of the government.
So just leave the plants and flowers alone and have a great holiday and time in Marocco.
The weather here can get very hot and humid. I am from Africa myself, but I really suffered here. I was in Marrakech in September and had great, sunny, hot days. Ensure that you pack light cotton clothes that can breathe and take in lots of liquids during day time especially to avoid de-hydration
The dress code is kaftans for both male and female. Although Western people can dress up in normal clothing, do not be taken aback when you are a lady with no sleeves top and the men make advances at you. Same thing will happen if you wear shorts
If you are of dark skin, looking like the Berber's, you could have some problems when you try and leave the country. My friend was stopped at customs and accused of stealing a foreign passport and trying to get out of the country. Bit scary moments there.
