Female Travelers in Morocco

If you are considering traveling by yourself in Morocco, or with a group of girlfriends, there are several tips that need to be taken into consideration which will make your travels through this beautiful country a pleasant experience.

Facing some unwanted attention while traveling does happen. The common actions are unwanted catcalls or even straight-up come-ons. It is best to not acknowledge the comments and keep moving on. Another way to deal with inappropriate behaviour is to speak to a local police and most tourist areas will have a police presence.

Dress Modestly

When a woman is travelling in Morocco, it’s better to reveal less skin. Predominant outfit should be long skirt and loose, long-sleeve shirt. You can also venture and try wearing some of the traditional jellabahs.

Staying Close to the Crowds

It is best to travel where there are large groups of tourists and avoid exploring on your own away from the crowds. If you are staying at a riad, ask the owners if there is someone reliable they can recommend accompanying you around. This is true when venturing out at night, especially if you are a single traveler.

Remember, that just because you are visiting Morocco, you shouldn’t be accepting actions that make you uncomfortable.
