  1. Middle East?…. no, Africa!

    The way you covered up might even attract more attention because that kind of dressing is not common in Morocco and makes your chest even more visible. If someone really wants to stand out less, an option would be instead to wear these traditional dresses (without covering your hair) with a ring on your left hand. Seriously, the worst thing (in public places at least) that could happen is to be cat-called by random dudes.

    Thank you for sharing with public your experience. I intent to go to, Casablanca Morocco from US. Unfortunately there is no more travelers check and I have to carry cash. I intent to open an account once I am in Morocco and put all of my cash in the bank. Please share with me any advice you may have in this regard. Thank you

  4. Morroco is an Africa nation and is not located in the Middle East.

  5. Salwa Fassi says:

    This video is full of misinformation. How could you have spent time in Marrakesh and think that French is the primary language in Morocco?! Arabic is the official language (along with Amazigh) and French is second… Very disappointing.

    Travelling to Morocco is amazing – there’s the Sahara desert, interesting Mosque architecture, riads (traditional Moroccan houses), treasure hunting at Medinas, mint tea, palaces, carpets and many more. However, scamming IS a national sport here (http://travelscams.org/africa/common-tourist-scams-morocco/). Many you meet on the street will only be interested in your wallet. There are so many fakes, so many scams, that it is a contender to having the most number of scams in the world.

    Do be wary of the nice guy scam, the henna woman scam, water seller scam, tannery scam, fake guides, fake products, notes switcheroo and so many more Hope this helps!

    That's what i'm talking about!

  11. natalie UK says:

    Ok, just a couple of things.1: Morocco isn't in the Middle East 2: women (even Moroccan women) do not have to cover their hair 3: as a European I can unsure you that marakech is much safer then most cities in Europe! The crime rate is low. The best thing to do when travelling anywhere is to look at official crime statistics and you will see that London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin etc are far more dangerous than Marrakech

  19. i found a lot of people spoke french, but mostly arabic. I had no trouble finding my way with speaking only english. http://ramblinmurph.com/2016/05/23/10-day-morocco-itinerary/

  20. Shina Nao says:

    i used to live in morocco in guigo and id say morocco is pretty safe depending the area though. in guigo the worst that could happen to you was stray dog attacks or poisonous things or a thief orr scammers. I heard stories that my great grandparents told me and there was a molestation incident in the area but once word got out the community got together and caught him and he was stoned. its a muslim country so things like adultery and highly frowned upon so in terms of that id say you are pretty safe in morocco. if you ever run into trouble just run into a crowded area and ask for help. if you are ever stranded lost or starved just hit up someones place. arab hospitality is some next level shit. but for this it would be best in a group. by the time you leave you would have put on 15 pounds xD

  21. One of the safest "Middle Eastern" countries?? They're not even part of middle east..Lol

  22. Rawan Syed says:

    5:55 The language is primarily Arabic not French! Natives speak Arabic and also Amazigh. It's really strange that you would you think so? You are in an Arab country after all! French (a relic of colonialism, read the history of French intervention in Morocco) is used primarily with foreigners and yes English is on the rise but the "not many know it yet" comment you make is not due to an ignorance of the language but due to the fact that French has taken its place as the nation's second language (of course, this is common in all the nations that were former colonies of France in the same way that English is spoken today as a second language in nations formerly colonized by it). You should be familiar with this–look into your own country's history and research why you all ended up speaking English and not French or German!!). The fact that the common people also speak English is impressive since it would be their 2nd foreign language. I dare say it would be difficult to find the common American speaking 2 foreign languages, an ethnic tongue, alongside their state's national language.

  23. First language is definitly not french, it's mostly used with tourist and a small minority uses it. First language is arabic and a lot of people speak amazigh too
