Local Laws and Etiquette

Although Marrakech is one of Morocco’s most liberal cities, your hosts will greatly appreciate a degree of modesty in your dress. Both women and men should avoid revealing clothing and keep knees and shoulders covered.

Marriage in Morocco remains a highly respected institution. For this reason, it is not in the least impolite to inquire about marital status, and new acquaintances are asked early in the conversation. Solo female travelers in particular may wonder why they would travel unaccompanied. In addition, Moroccan laws prohibit extramarital sex, drinking in public and smoking kif (Hashish).
