Morocco Travel Tips
More established shops will take credit card, but most smaller markets, street vendors, and cabs will not. Be ready with the local currency.
Learn to Haggle
Shopping in Morocco is a MUST, but it also comes with the art of haggling over the item price as selling it is a National Sport in Morocco and part of the culture. If you are willing to haggle, you could save up to 25 - 50% of the original price.
Stay away from strangers offering free tours or directions
Many will come to you as you are walking through the markets offering to accompany you in the maze of streets. You may end up lost and asked for extra money to return to your point of departure.
Fridays are Holy Days
Most of the shops and attractions are closed on a Friday.
