A Morocco Packing List For Women: Tips For What To Pack And Wear In Morocco

Chefchaouen Morocco

Are you heading to Morocco and not sure what you should bring for your trip? Last fall (2016) I went for just over two weeks to do a road trip around the country. I wanted to share my Morocco packing list with my friends and readers. Of course, everyone is different when it comes to style and preferences but I thought this would be helpful in case you need some ideas.

TRIP PLANNING STARTS HERE

HELPFUL GENERAL TRAVEL TIPS

  • Flights: Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • Accommodations: I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on hotels. Hotels.com offers a free night after booking 10 nights.
  • Travel Insurance: Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For my round the world trip and extended long-term travel, I use World Nomads. For other trips, I have used Roam Right and they cover activities like extreme sports.
  • Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!

My Morocco packing list tech wise:

  • Unlocked iPhone (call your cell phone company to unlock your phone) – I bought a local Moroccan SIM card to use for calling riads and random internet needs. I have T-Mobile but Africa is not included in my free worldwide data
  • I brought my MacBook Air because my iPhone 6 was being funny so I wanted to be sure I could communicate with the riads that we had booked plus taking so many photos I try to upload my images to my Dropbox
  • Universal travel plug – Morocco uses similar plugs to Europe
  • Travel power strip – always because I bring so much gear!
  • Cameras: I brought my GoPro, my DSLR, and mirrorless Sony – I couldn’t take enough photos in Morocco!
  • Don’t forget all of your charging cords!!!

Morocco is a Muslim country so you will see women wearing hijabs. This, of course, is not expected of foreigners but I wanted to be respectful. September was quite hot still and I wanted to make sure my clothing was lightweight yet gave me full coverage. I did wear some short sleeve and a sleeveless top but I had my Balinese sarong which acted as a scarf/shawl when I felt like I should cover up.

You will see foreigners wearing tank tops, short dresses and skirts, which of course is fine, I’m not judging. But since I definitely look like a foreigner, I prefer to be a bit more incognito. I did not have any problems with being harassed and I know it is due to being properly dressed.

Here are some photos of what I wore during my trip for ideas:
