More and more people are visiting Morocco every year. It’s a beautiful country, and as photographers and videographers, we had a field day.
On the flipside, there were also downsides of visiting especially as a woman. If you plan on going, we put together a few pointers to help you set realistic expectations and prepare for your trip.
21 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW BEFORE VISITING MOROCCO
1. DRESS APPROPRIATELY
Overall, guys can dress however they like, but women need to dress more conservatively. Although you see many tourists wearing whatever they want, we chose to cover up as much as possible to avoid unwanted attention.
Even if you’re traveling with a group of guys, you may still get harassed. Some of the girls in our group got groped on multiple occasions even though we were paired off with a male buddy.
It was mostly really old men, and it happened more often in crowded places. When visiting mosques, you need to cover down to your wrists and ankles.
For the ladies out there, keep a shawl / scarf handy (this one is reversible and great for traveling light)
