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. --220.127.116.11
hamams vs rhyads as a substitute of shower
Dear 18.104.22.168, 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.
I drove my spanish BMW to Morocco in 2005 without problems. I think you only need to show the special paper in case anythings happens, but I had no use for it. However, on the ferry I had to fill in a paper with details of the car that was handed to an officer at the arrival and I got one copy that MUST be shown upon return. Doing this carefully, no problem at all, excellent roads. Fun driving there, but the police love to use radars to check speeds, so keep speed exactly... it costed 400 DIRHAMS for speeding 120 km/h on a 80 km/h road, but I always got the money back after talking to them and apologizing nicely and really showing pacience. It can take some time, but they love tourists so if you behave decently, there is nothing to be afraid of apart from loosing some 30 minutes of time and waiting in the sun. I traveled another time at winter, this time the paper was to be filled in at arrival, park your car in the queue for foreign cars and go out and ask any uniformed person to give you the paper to fill in, fill it in and give it to an officer walking around there to get it stamped and once this is done you can enter the country freely. Do not pay any attention to people that are not uniformed since they just want to earn money for helping you. If you are lazy and it is too bad weather, it is alright but there is no guarantee they give you the correct info...
Going out of Morocco with a European car; be prepared that they will check the car for drugs carefully both before going on the ferry and upon entering Spain. In Morocco its more visual check, but in Spain its more technological check and they talk to you to check if you look to be of the personality that might try to import drugs. It is not worth the risks. Prision penalties even for a minimal amount of drugs. They even let trained dogs search outside and inside your car. So don´t even think about it.
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:
Alright, I took my thoughts above, added Anti Atlas, and drew a map... how is this looking as a region breakdown for Morocco? Anything to change? Are the names agreeable? – cacahuate talk 23:12, 30 June 2008 (EDT)
The article states to avoid doing anything with your left hand, as the Moroccans perceive the left hand is used for handling excretion. Is this for real? c'mon, the Moroccans 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?
Currency Abbreviation and Usage
We need to decide upon one standard way to represent prices for all the Morocco travel pages. Looking just at this Morocco page and the Marrakech page, I've seen prices listed with "dirhams" spelled out and abbreviated, with various different forms of abbreviations, with the abbreviations before and after the price, and with abbreviations next to and spaced out from the price. The permutations are many, all of which seem to be used at least once.
Here are actual examples (no kidding) copied directly from those two pages:
After searching the web, there doesn't seem to be a consensus among other guides either. Lonely Planet lists prices in this format: DH 100. Rough Guides uses this format: 100dh. A New York Times article on Marrakech lists prices this way: 100 dirhams.
No matter what, we need to standardize things. Spmenic 00:34, 3 August 2008 (EDT)
Staying outside cities
In June and July, how easy is it to get accomodation in small towns? I'm thinking of hiring a 4wd, with driver, and exploring the High Atlas Mountains. I'd need to park and sleep in small villages, and make day trips on foot, starting well before dawn.
Would it be possible to rock up to a small village, such as here: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=N31+27.121+W6+37.805&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&ie=UTF8&ll=31.559815,-6.630249&spn=2.335507,4.943848&z=8&iwloc=addr and be confident that I could get accommodation?
I am not keen on camping, largely because it would require the transportation of too much gear on the plane. Arpitt 10:47, 8 January 2009 (EST)
