Don't we need a 'See' section for special "must-see" attractions?
Some WikiTraveler left the following external links that might be useful to researchers.
Few more external links on travelling by taxi and by car:
It has some ideas we would welcome here--but is it OK to just transcribe key of them in this article? Will it conform to our policy on using copyrighted content? BTW, here's who they are and why they are doing that: http://www.triotours.com/faq/about/who-is.htm. --DenisYurkin 23:37, 15 November 2006 (EST)
Sleep for Dh75 is expensive budget?
I wonder if the prices like this really exist anywhere in Morocco:
From my experience, typical budget accommodation is from EUR50 to EUR80 per double, which is about x10 higher then the figures above. Can anyone support that the prices above are real and up-to-date? --DenisYurkin 15:53, 13 November 2006 (EST)
Buses are more reliable than trains?
I removed several quotations like this, as they give more questions than answers. In what sense are they more reliable? Are there more buses per day than trains per day for the same connection? Are buses better in departing/arriving in time? Do they break up more rare than trains? Please give details on this--and we'll bring the phrase back to the guide. --DenisYurkin 17:46, 22 November 2006 (EST)
Get around: by plane
We need more details here: routes available; frequency per day; give some idea on prices of domestic flights. Anyone willing to share? --DenisYurkin 16:46, 24 November 2006 (EST)
URLs for ferries
Hi, I do respect you external links policy, but it is very annoying that I only see soem prices for ferries, but no names for companies nor website addresses. The wiki would be a good place for that. Now im in the hands of google, and the travel preparation gets much more of a fuss. --22.214.171.124
hamams vs rhyads as a substitute of shower
Dear 126.96.36.199, hammams look much more reasonable substitute for hotel shower, as riads are actually a mid-class kind of hotel, not a public bath. Why did you change hammams to ryadhs? --DenisYurkin 05:06, 18 January 2007 (EST)
Traveling During the Ramadan Holiday
Is it possible traveling during the Ramadan Holiday? our planed vacation is scheduled for the same period of the year as the Ramadan happens to be celebrated. Homer 08:49, 30 June 2007 (EDT)
Is a Carnet de Passage needed?
Could someone confirm (and include in the article under "Get In / By Car" section) whether you need a Carnet de Passage in order to bring your car into Morocco? I was told by my local automobile association that I need one, but on wikipedia Morocco isn't even listed among the countries where it is helpful to have one. Also, I do feel that it is a rather important information to have if you're planning on entering Morocco by car.
Morocco badly needs subregions. I am not familiar with the country, but here is my suggestion:
Almost. There's an almost decent breakup of the country here: 
I'm thinking, based on the above linked to map:
The article states to avoid doing anything with your left hand, as the Moroccons perceive the left hand is used for handling excretion. Is this for real? c'mon, the Moroccons should know that most foreigners simply do not go around in life handling crap. But the problem is that being left handed I could not even sign my name with my right hand. To what extent is this anti-left hand guideline a real issue in their culture?
