Female Travel Guide in Morocco

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

Morocco is an amazing country and filled with a vibrant culture. I am sure a lot of you have heard of stories or are intimidated as a female to travel to Morocco. But fear no more, I have traveled to Morocco as a 21 year old woman and still to this day am in love with the country.

First things first, is it safe to travel to Morocco as a female?

Yes, I had never felt unsafe. Simple as that. However, the culture is much different and that is something to keep in mind as a female especially. I am speaking with full honesty here when I say this. Your role as a women is different here compared to the West, but the Moroccan women are not in danger 24/7 and I got in zero altercations with men or the law whilst in Morocco. Women have their own jobs, you will see women in public, women are starting to dress more and more modern.

What should I wear?

To be on the safe side, its best to dress more modestly. Morocco is in fact a Muslim country and generally everyone dresses quite modestly. Of course you can wear dresses, long skirts, jeans, and still be stylish you don't have to completely change your style. There isn't a law that you must abide with certain dress code in Morocco, but its smarter to dress more modestly. In your trip, if you visit the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, cover your shoulders and dress more modestly as it is a holy place.
