Wearing shorts

I have read that men shouldn't wear shorts in Morocco, as this is seen as not culturally correct? Is this correct?

Would this even apply to walking in the Atlas Mountains?

I think at this stage in 2011 you can safely walk around in shorts wherever you want...you won't see too many Moroccan men doing it but it's not like they've not seen foreigners wearing shorts before. I personally always travel with a pair of nice comfy linen trousers and save the shorts for the beach or hiking, but that's me.

Where on earth did you read this nonsense? When it's hot here most of the local guys are out in cut offs and vests never mind what tourists are wearing! (on a personal note though really short shorts are not a good look on anyone anywhere! :-)

Shorts are fine and not a problem at all : )

However, you might want to reconsider taking them to the atlas mountains; might be slightly cold up there. If you're doing a long trek, might be worth taking something more suitable i.e. outdoor garments.

Best : )
