In truth, Morocco is a safe place to visit. There’s only really small crime there (scams and pickpockets) and you’re unlikely to be assaulted or seriously hurt as a tourist in the country. Morocco is super safe for tourists now . Morocco travel requires extra vigilance because it’s easy to have something happen to you.
Visas . British nationals don’t need a visa to enter Morocco for the purpose of tourism for up to 3 months. When entering the country, make sure your passport is stamped. Some tourists have experienced difficulties leaving the country because their passport bears no entry stamp.
The best time to visit Morocco is during spring (mid-March to May) or fall (September to October). The weather is warm but pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter, or the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year -round.
Moroccans are very loving – in private. It’s very uncommon and frowned on to show a lot of affection in public. Holding hands in Morocco is fine. The more rural you are the more frowned on public displays of affection are.

I can definitely tell you that morocco is much cheaper than turkey for everything – hotels, food, entrance costs to monuments, etc. Turkey was surprisingly expensive. Turkey can still be very cheap if you go to the tourist resort areas. It depends where you stay, of course, but fierce competition drives down prices.
The standard work week in Morocco is 48 hours a week, or eight hours a day , Mondays to Fridays. Despite Morocco being a Muslim country, it does not follow the standard workweek of several Muslim nations in the Middle East, which starts on Sunday and ends on Thursday.
The weekdays are considered Monday through Thursday, and the weekend is Friday and Saturday. Sunday isn’t included in the calculations for two reasons.
