There are no strict rules with dressing. Morocco is deemed an open and
liberal country, due to its proximity to Europe. Therefore, dressing for foreigners has not to be a big issue. However, it is important to notice that the majority of Moroccan people are conservative, and do not approve seeing foreign guests wearing inappropriate clothes which may break the public norms. It doesn’t mean you should wear as the locals, but particularly, women have to respect the general clothing norms, which is covering the knees and breast and avoiding tight or transparent outfits.
If you’ve only got a weekend, choose Marrakech or Fes. Both are wonderful cities with a lot to see and do. If you have a full week, see both and throw in a third or fourth location. Ideally not a city because the Moroccan countryside is worlds different from the cities, regardless of whether you choose coastline, mountains, or desert of Erg Chebbi Merzouga. Two full weeks would give you a solid overview of the best of Morocco.
The tents (camps) in the Sahara desert are different, there are two different types: Standard tents and Luxury tents. Standard tents: black nomadic private tents include public toilets for share and no shower. Luxury tents: White big private tents include WC and shower with hot water inside the tent.
Mid March and late of December are peak seasons for tourists to visit Morocco. The trips prices will be higher than other months because of higher accommodation costs. Most of good accommodations are likely sold out several weeks before. As such, it is highly recommended to book your Morocco tour as early as possible if you plan to come during these periods. If your schedule allows, it is recommended to avoid travelling during peak seasons so as to let you enjoy the best experience and avoid the crowds.
