What should you pack for Morocco?
This is a question I get a lot, and having traveled to Morocco multiple times I thought I would share my experiences, advice, and tips on what what I bring and how I prepare for my trips to Morocco. - Kylie Chenn
Climate and Temperature: The best times to travel to Morocco for temperate whether between 60 to 80 degrees is March-May and September - November. In the summer expect higher temperatures above 90 degrees F (especially in the Sahara Desert) and in the winter expect lower temperatures averaging 50 - 60 degrees F.
Culture & Customs: Some of the friendliest people I have met on my travels have been to Morocco! Be prepared to drink tea (or orange juice) with locals, be invited into their homes, and make life long friends. Morocco is an Arabic Speaking Country with Islam as it's major religion. Be prepared to dress modestly and be conservative with your actions (no PDA or kissing in public).
