Our goal is to help you to get the right transportation vehilce that suite the nature of your excursions a 4×4 jeep, for instance, is suitable for harsh environment or desert. But it may not be much suitable if you want to cross higher sand dunes. In the case of dunes, you may need to rent a camel or a horse. Generally, Unlike public transportation Tourist transportation is excellent in Morocco.
Here are available means of transportation in or to Morocco:

Airlines : Many different airlines manage international flights to Morocco cities mainly to Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakesh, Fez, Ourzazate, Tanger, and Nadour.   Traveling in Morocco by plane is available only between a few cities and is a more expensive means of transportation but it does save you time.

Perhaps you would like to take a ferry from Spain ?  All travels to Morocco by boat sails the Mediterranean Sea or Atlantic Ocean, which provides daily links between Europe, United States, Africa, and Asia.

Train : Generally, train services in Morocco are comfortable, quick, reliable, and give you a chance to see cities and landscapes from the comfort of a railcar. Trains run between specific cities; such as Tangier, Casablanca,Rabat ,Marrakesh ,Fes, and Meknes.

4X4 Jeeps : Jeeps are suitable for traveling over rough or high terrain and crossing long distances. The”land-cruiser” and “Prado” are the most reliable in Morocco and are the most preferable travel option among tourist groups or individuals because of the durablity, speed, and luggage carrier. They also come equipped with an air-conditioner.

Bus and Minibus : Traveling by bus is less expensive and often safer in terms of travel conditions. Two kinds of tour buses are available in Morocco: The Mini-bus , fairly similar to 4×4 jeeps in quality, but are suitable only for groups (8-10 passengers) traveling on paved roads, and Tour buses which have a capacity up to 50 passengers plus their luggage. These buses are preferably for longer trips between cities.

Rental cars and motorbikes : You may prefer to travel by motorbike or a rental car. Most cities have car rental locations, but it’s imprtant to know that the gasoline prices in Morocco generally are high (but less than Europe and USA).

Animals : Camels and Horses are available to start your trek across the magnificent sand dunes. You can get a Camel Treks in groups to cross long and short distance through Sahara, but you can only get a horse ride in specific areas and it is more expensive than Camel Trek.

The Souks of Morocco

The Souks of Morocco are a shoppers’ delight !  They vary in size and complexity depending on the city you are visiting; the best known ones are the Souks of Marrakesh and Fes/Fez.  There is nothing that you can not buy in the Souk. The sellers are gracious and shrewd after all, this mode of merchandising has been around for centuries.

The Souks date back to 110 BC existing at cross-roads for caravans to sell goods. But they were more than just a market place, it was also a socio-cultural connecting-point for festivals, communication, and goods. The Souks are generally divided up into smaller areas by specialty: Gold, Spices, Leather, vegitables, Dates, Olives, Clothes and Fabric, Animals and more.

In larger cities like Marrakesh the number of Souks can stretch for many winding miles. While the essence of antiquity, the Souks are connected to the 21st century! Bartering is the expected way to buy in a Souk – not to, is an insult to the seller. So bring your wish list and plenty of dirhams to Morroco and be ready to bargain for a special price.

About Moroccan currency

The Moroccan currency unit is the dirham. There are automatic banking machines throughout Morocco in the vast majority of cities and most towns and even in some sahara villages. Specific kind of credit cards, such as “Visa” and Master cards are accepted at most Hotels, Restaurants and Supermarkets. You can change your money and traveler checks at all major banks, some hotels, and of course the Airport.  You will notice that the cost of services and goods are quite cheaper than what you would pay for the same services and goods in your country.

* Pay attention to slight changes rates that might happen frequently.

You have to know that he Dirham can be neither imported nor exported, in other words you can only buy and sell it within Morocco, so spend or convert your remaining Dirhams to your country currency or other currencies before you leave. The exchange operations are only legal at authorized local exchanging points such as banks or the airport.

Traditional Moroccan clothes

The traditional dress for men and women is called a Djellaba; a long, loose, hooded garment with full sleeves. Djellabas can come in three styles: Arab (large, flowing garments), Berber (with straighter lines) and Pasha (a two-piece garment worn for special events). Arab men also wear a red cap called Bernousse also called a Fez mostly for special events. Women wear Kaftans elaborately decorated in silver and gold beading and trim. Nearly all men wear Babouche, soft leather slippers with no heel, often in yellow. Many women do as well.

Djellaba is historical – old as Morocco itself. The major style distinction between a Djellaba and a Kaftan is that the Djellaba has a hood while a Kaftan does not. This hood is very important as it protects the wearer from the sun; in the desert, the hood is also used as a defense against sand being blown into the wearers’ face by strong desert winds.   Modern Djellabas are quite fashionable and are being designed to appeal to foreigners and young Moroccan women living in cities. These fashionable Djellabas are often made of cotton, rayon or silk, and are woven with sequins, beads, and trim or large patterned designs. The Islamic religion of Morocco is also a key factor in the way that Moroccan people dress. The Djellaba covers the whole body and is therefore an acceptable modest outfit.  Nowadays, however, as the modernization flows have spread, Unlike elders, young Moroccan dress more fashionably.

Moroccan spices

You cannot leave Morocco without some. Many spices have been imported to Morocco for thousands of years but there are some grown in Morocco, which you must take back with you.
Saffron grown in Tiliounine is particulary wonderful.  The good Cumin grows in Sahara it is wildly fragrant you will only use a little. Paprika ( Hot and Regular ) will instantly bring back memories of Morocco when you use them. Golden Turmeric is a must to color and flavor any dish naturally.  Although this may be difficult to carry, buy a Tagine, buy some spices and have culinary memories when you return home.
