Travel Tips

Of course! Here are some tips to make your trip to Meknes, Fes, and Casablanca, Morocco amazing:

Best Time to Visit:
The ideal time to visit these cities is during the spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) when the weather is the most pleasant. The summer can get quite hot, especially in Fes and Meknes.

Route and Accessibility:
The rail network in Morocco is quite comprehensive. There are regular trains connecting Meknes, Fes, and Casablanca which are also comfortable. Alternatively, you can use a private taxi or explore drive options.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
These cities are all at low elevations so altitude sickness is not usually a concern. However, the weather can significantly change from day to night, so you might need a few days to acclimate.

Accommodation and Booking:
There's a variety of accommodations available in these cities, from luxury hotels to affordable guesthouses (riads). It's recommended to book your accommodations in advance, especially in the high season.

Clothing and Essentials:
Dress modestly respecting the local culture, especially in religious places. Sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses are essential as it can get quite sunny. Comfortable walking shoes are a must as the old towns (Medinas) of Meknes and Fes are best explored on foot.

Health and Safety:
Street food is delicious but be aware of food hygiene to avoid traveler's diarrhea. Common precautions like not drinking tap water, watching out for personal belongings, and avoiding less crowded areas at night should be taken.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Respect local traditions and customs. Haggling is a common practice in local markets. Avoid giving money to beggars and instead, consider making a donation to a local charity. Also, it's recommended to ask for permission before taking pictures of locals.
