In Morocco, rail connects the main cities, and buses are used for inner-city trips. Small private and group tours are typically conducted using large vans and sedans. For large group excursions, medium to large motor coaches is used.

Clothing Enquiries

- What should I wear in Morocco?

It is important to wear loose, lightweight clothing in Morocco, both to respect the local culture and to protect your skin and stay cool. Around religious sites, a light scarf is handy to have, particularly to shield you from the sun and sand

 - How should I dress for entering a mosque (male)?

The protocol does ask for men to wear long trousers as opposed to shorts.

- How should I dress for entering a mosque (female)?

The protocol does ask for women to cover bare skin as much as possible and so shoulders, especially, should be covered and a simple scarf will suffice. Again, it is advised to wear long trousers, or skirts, as legs should also be covered. Heads do not need to be covered, despite what some tourist books say, though it is a sign of respect if you do this.

- What clothes should I wear when visiting sites?

This depends on which site you are visiting and at what time of the day. Some offer little shade and so you should ensure that you do not have too much skin available for the sun to burn.

You'll usually find world-renowned beer, wine, and spirits in addition to local beer (Flag (pilsner), Stork (light lager), and Casablanca (Premium lager)), as well as Moroccan wines (because of France's influence on Morocco, the country produces excellent wines). You may need to present your passport when purchasing wine in a Moroccan supermarket. During Ramadan, supermarkets don't usually sell alcohol, but many hotels and restaurants will still serve it.
