Everything You Have To Know Before Traveling Solo To Morocco As A Woman

Solo travel as a woman can be scary. Especially if you’re new to it and are not only visiting a new country but a completely new continent. It’s normal to feel a bit anxious and feel the need to inform yourself as much as possible. Sometimes, you just don’t know what to expect. Especially if it’s a country with a completely different culture than what you are used to, such as Morocco. While this place is undeniably beautiful, it’s just so hard to know what you can expect before traveling there for the first time. So if you are planning a one-woman adventure to Morocco, here are some things that you should know before traveling solo to Morocco.

Yes, it’s safe

While Morocco is generally safe, I have to be honest and tell you that it may not be the ideal location if you’re traveling alone for the first time. If you’re an experienced traveler, and you have visited other similar countries, then go for it. But if you are just starting to go on trips by yourself, rather opt for something less challenging. While this is a popular place for tourists, I can’t say that the majority of locals know English. Let’s be real, they don’t even have to know it. But the fact is that there will be a language barrier, and it could be a bit tricky to get over that. On top of that, this is a Muslim country, so it’s no surprise that their culture is entirely different. If that’s not something you’re used to, it could get a bit overwhelming.

The best places to visit in Morocco 

Now, let’s talk about the best places that you can visit in Morocco. In my opinion, the two locations that you just shouldn’t miss out on are Marrakech and Fez. These are two of the most popular tourist hotspots, and I feel like they are also some of the safest and easiest to get around. But just like with any other location, you have to use your common sense. Do your research, download maps, don’t be afraid to ask questions, and stay safe.

Marrakech 

Marrakech is home to some of the most amazing museums in Morocco. Some of them are the House of Photography of Marrakech, the Tiskiwin Museum, the Berber Museum, and the Marrakech Museum. While this city is filled with culture and history, it’s also one of Morocco’s wealthiest areas. It’s filled with luxurious hotels, spas, boutiques, and restaurants. Marrakech’s La Mamounia is one of the world’s most famous and best-rated hotels. Is the name familiar to you? Well, that’s because this is the hotel featured in the Netflix series ‘Inventing Anna’.

Fez

Fez is the second largest city in Morocco, and it’s also the oldest one. So if you love to visit historic sites and learn new things about the countries that you visit, Fez should be on top of your list. After all, this is also the city that Rory Gilmore had on her bucket list. The city was founded in 789 AD, and it’s considered the best-preserved city in the Arab world. It’s also home to the oldest university in the world, and there are more museums here than you could count. If you’re interested in learning more about the history of Morocco, or about Islam as a religion, then Fez is the perfect place for you while you’re traveling solo to Morocco.
