When planning a trip to Morocco, many people ask what they should bring. Some people are concerned about their safety, and as a result, they may forget vital objects. Morocco is a very safe country, and you are unlikely to have anything stolen from you. People have a habit of forgetting the most simple things and then regretting them afterward. Here are a few key items that you should certainly bring with you on your tour, based on my own experience.
Your swimwear is something you should carry, especially if you are planning a more expensive excursion. Most of Morocco's finer hotels and riads will feature clean, lovely pools for you to enjoy. During the summer, Morocco's weather is scorching, and if you visit the Sahara, the desert is constantly warm and sunny.
A camera is another item that you must bring with you on your vacation to Morocco. Morocco is not known for its thieving, so you can be assured that you and your electronic devices will be protected from prying eyes. Morocco is also a very gorgeous country that has been known to cause many visitors to use up their entire camera's memory card! There are so many gorgeous places to see, and you may capture moments in time with your camera that you will never forget. These memories will last a lifetime, whether they be of shopping in the Medina or riding camels.
Wherever you travel, it's always a good idea to dress appropriately. Morocco's weather varies greatly throughout the year, so it's always a good idea to be prepared. Morocco's winters, contrary to common opinion, are bitterly cold, with snowfall in several areas. Most people believe that because Morocco is in Africa, it will never get cold, especially near the Sahara. Your snowsuit will no longer be required, but a jacket will be useful. No matter what season it is, the desert is scorching hot. In the winter, the mornings can be cool, but by mid-morning, the temperature has increased significantly.
During the summer, light attire is preferred. If modesty is a problem for you, try to wear short sleeves rather than sleeveless tops and longer slacks in Morocco. It might be considerate of you to adjust to their way of life. Capris are permitted in more modern towns such as Casablanca, Rabat, and Marrakech, but shorts are not.
You may bring your computer with you because WiFi is widely available in Morocco. If you do bring your computer, though, keep in mind that this is a holiday, not a business trip. You can obtain Internet for a few dirhams, and the fancier hotels and restaurants will provide it for free.
Another item to bring is a two-pronged ROUND plug adaptor. Square or three-pronged plugs are not available in Morocco. It's important to remember that adaptors don't affect the current. You'll need a transformer to convert it to 220 volts, even if you have the proper adaptor. It would be a pity to destroy a device by connecting it to the incorrect current.
Enjoy your stay!
