Guide to Morocco
If you are traveling for the first time to some place, the process can be a little overwhelming and stressful. Traveling to Morocco is a great thing to do but for beginners can be a little hard to plan everything. There are many things to know, some tips that are great to take into account, places to visit, things you can and you can’t do; too much information that you do not know before traveling to this place.
This is why there are some guides you can find on the internet to guide you during this process. So, if you are planning to do the Morocco Tours and you are excited about the Morocco Tour packages you should keep reading this and then organizing everything.
The first thing you need to do deals with money. It is important to know that dirham is the currency of the country and 1 dirham is equal to 10$ approximately. There are ATM machines in many Moroccan cities and there are some banks in which you can change the currency too. Try to keep in mind the charges by using the credit cards outside the country and talk to the bank before you get here. You do not want your card to be blocked when you are out of the country. If you are traveling with your national currency you can change the money when you get here in any bank, you do not need to get dirhams from your country. It is also important to know that you cannot take Moroccan currency out of the country, so you cannot change this currency into your national currency when you get home, remember this.
As other countries, you can use your credit card and this is totally acceptable. But you need to know that in some places you will be asked to give some cash except from credit cards. Especially if you are walking around the medinas or small souks, they will ask for cash instead from credit cards, and if you decide to use that as your only option, they could charge an extra amount for using the credit card. So, try to always have some cash with you so you will only use credit cards in hotels or restaurants.
Talking about documentation, doing the Morocco Tours is the easiest thing to do regarding do papers you need to stay here. You will not need a visa or any special paper, you will only be asked to fill out in a white paper with some information. Also, you are allowed to stay in Morocco up to 90 days.
Talking about the weather, you need to know that it can change dramatically depending on the zone. You may think Morocco is really hot but it is not like that in all places. There are places that are really cold in winter and there are other places in which summer can be really hot. Even if it seems that it is warm, you need to know that Moroccan houses do to have heating system, so it may seems not too cold but it can be cold. Moreover, some riads and hotels have a heating system so you do not need to worry about that. So, when packing be sure to know the places you are going to be, the seasons and try to bring any kind of clothes for different temperatures.
Packing can be a little difficult, but as I said before, you need to know the seasons and the activities that the Morocco Tours offered to you so you will know what it is going to be inside your bag.
