MORROCO
Is full of charms, located in North Africa, which borders the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the north. It has a population of more than 38.8 million inhabitants, indigenous Berbers and Arabs.
The most famous and largest cities in Morocco are Casablanca (you can visit the Hassan II Mosque, the only mosque in the world that allows access to non-Muslim tourists), Marrakech, Tangier, Fez and Meknes. Its capital is Rabat, a beautiful city where most of Morocco’s commercial activity is concentrated.
In turn, in Morocco, there is the largest desert in the world “El Sahara” where the sunsets and sunrises that it gives us are certainly incredible, something you have never seen before.
The main economy of the country is tourism, this is why we wait for you to enjoy the magic of this country and make your dream trip with us.
While we are talking about Morocco, it is crucial and necessary to know that it is a patriarchal society. Therefore, there is a large part of gender inequality.

CULTURE
Morocco is one of the most liberal Islamic countries - but you should respect and be sensitive to their customs and restrictions. The main restriction a tourist will encounter is banned entry into the mosques if you are not a Muslim. This is unfortunate, as many mosques feature beautiful artistry of design. There are a few note-worthy exceptions: the Hassan II in Cassablanca, Mohammed V Mausoleum in Rabat, and Moulay Ismail Mausoleum in Meknes are open to all visitors.
During the month of Ramadan, when the believers fast each day until sunset, you will have a few more challenges than tourists visiting at other times as many establishments for food and drink will be closed. Not to worry; you still will be able to find many places open to eat during the day.
In Islamic countries it is forbidden to drink alcohol. As Morocco is a favorite tourist destination, restrictions have been relaxed and alcohol is served in many bars, hotels and restaurants. You should not offer alcohol to Muslim although, many young and westernized Moroccans drink alcohol.

LANGUAGE
The official language is Arabic. In addition to the official language, about 10 million Moroccans (mostly in rural communities) speak Berber. French is popular and is the third most widely spoken unofficial language; it is the main language of business and commerce and it is used in education and government. Spanish is spoken in the Northern part of the country. Western visitors will find English spoken in popular tourist destinations.

SHOPPING
The souks are a must. Many goods are still produced by hand in the backyards – eg tannery and pottery in Fes, leather, ceramic reed work in Rabat, as well as fabrics in Tangier.
Mousseems in the countryside, such as the carpet markets in Khemisset and Taznakht, are also very attractive.
With the exception of the “Maisons de l’Artisant” haggling is part of shopping. Tip: Start at 30% of the price quoted. In general: 10% less than the first price is always in it, 25% frequently and 50% possible. Overall, the range of handicraft products in Morocco is of good quality. Leather articles and ceramics may be chemically contaminated.

FESTIVAL AND Holidays
Major Islamic Holidays:
Breaking the fast at the end of 30-day Ramadan (Eid al-Fitr) and the Eid al-Adha, as well as numerous local saints Mousses, are subject to the lunar calendar and are postponed by 10-11 each year days. During the time of Ramadan, believers are forbidden to eat, drink, smoke, or have sexual intercourse from dawn to dusk.
Please bear in mind that the burdens of fasting can be very high, especially on hot days.
In Ramadan, life is slower during the day, but Muslims are up late at night. Many restaurants open late, but stay open longer.
Every night is celebrated, which makes a trip to Ramadan a special experience.
Most sights are also open during Ramadan. ifno Morocco
