Marrakech do’s and don’t’s

Just from our recent experience!!  We felt safe there, but there’s a few things we noticed….

Do cross main roads at zebra crossings, at traffic lights and definitely in a group!  Much safer.

If someone offers to direct you to an attraction, shop or museum – be careful.  They are likely to ask for money in return.  We were trying to find the tanneries area of the souk (see picture) and someone took us down there.  HoweverDIGITAL CAMERA once we’d been taken round there and deposited in the shop where we bought items, we were then hassled for money (around £15-20 in total) which we didn’t have.  It was the only time we felt vulnerable.

Excursions to the Ourika Valley or Mountains, great day out.  But check if your time there will include hiking, so that you’re prepared with the right clothes and footwear and that the walk will be suitable for your fitness level.

Evening events that are or might be outside, make sure you take a jacket or shawl.  High daytime temperatures do not mean high night-time temperatures!
