Morocco Fast Facts
Wedged between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, Europe and Africa, Morocco is one of the most stimulating and awe-inspiring travel destinations on earth - a perfect destination for cultural, activity and adventure holidays, trips and tours in North Africa. With a wonderful climate, a rich heritage, a wealth of antiquities, over 1800 km of dramatic coastline, the high peaks, villages and picturesque valleys of the Atlas Mountains and a vast Saharan wilderness of desert dunes, oases and camels – there is an adventure of some kind for everyone in this fabled land. With its rich traditions, time quickly takes on another dimension. Morocco is a place for escape, for experience, for adventure and for reconnection with a lifestyle fast disappearing in the developed world.
Morocco is a Muslim country. You should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times and be aware of your actions to ensure that they do not offend other cultures or religious beliefs, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas. Women, especially when travelling alone, will attract attention. To minimise hassle, women should always dress inconspicuously and avoid wearing clothes that could be regarded as provocative (e.g. short skirts and low-necked strapless tops), except on the beach. The penalties for possession of even small amounts of drugs are severe.
