My husband and i are planning to go away in May 2014 and Morocco has caught our eye as the possible location; to be honest it looks incredible and has the right mix of culture and vibrancy that we are seeking.
Having checked FCO the safety guidelines are a bit ambiguous- Is Morocco, (Marrakech being the area we're looking at) safe to go to now? The website mentions a security threat and bombings a while ago? All i can find is old reviews and i would like to know how things are now.
Also if anyone can help, are there any cultural traditions that i would need to know about? I am not the type that swans around in a bikini but i always aim to be respectful of a country's traditions.
Lastly, am i right in thinking they speak French? If so, this is good, i am fairly fluent :)
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
