I think maybe the previous post was being sarcastic! Stripshows are NOT part f the culture for obvious reasons,and if that is the sort of thing you are after best hit Spain etc, Morocco is not the place for you!

Long may that sort of thing NOT be a part of the life out here

I'd go with the view that you 'll ceratinly have fun but don't bet your last dime on a nude show. Go to a spa, try a disco( Pacha, Theatro) or restaurant with live music ( Jad Mahal or le comptoir)

You can also try to cook Moroccan at one of the many cooking schools in Marrakech or even organise a private party at a riad with belly dancers, Moroccan music and food

Tikke - I do not think marrkech is for you. It's not really a matching t-shirt angel wings drinking competition pulling spa centre strip club boutique mall kind of place. (and keep in mind it's a moslem country)

Absolutely not. 'Hen' may like to come for her honeymoon. A Hen Night would be a disaster.

Ditto to most of the above, particularly marradonkey's comments.

It will be a wonderful place for a honeymoon but the culture of countries like Morocco is more and more under threat from these type of activities (just look at Prague).

I've just come back and wouldn't advise Marrakech for a hen party, it's more of a cultural place than a party place. I wouldn't recommend as a honeymoon place either - the city is quite manic so doesn't fit into the typical romantic relaxing honeymoon destination.

I would recommend Marrakesh for couples without children and I would suggest your friend goes there with her husband and maybe another couple or two before they have children. She should definitely go though - fascinating city!!!

One other thing! Booze is very expensive there too for obvious reasons. It would cost you a fortune.

Marrakech is still safe from Hen/Stag do's, please keep it that way!

Perhaps you may wish to consider going to Prague in the Czech Republic as this is the hen capital of the world. It's also the top place to lose ones passport and then expect the Foreign Office to sort things out.

I seriously hope such a practice never becomes the norm in Morocco and I hate to say it, but I always try to steer clear of British tourists wherever I go, especially the ones who just want to get laid and pi**ed.
