Morocco Travel QuestionsCategory: MoroccoHow safe is staying in a riad in Marrakech, Morocco?
Lianmi asked 1 year ago

Riads in Marrakech are generally considered safe places to stay and are great for those looking for peace and comfort. A riad is a traditional Moroccan house with an interior garden and a small swimming pool surrounded by orange trees in the courtyard. Many riads in the old medina have been converted into accommodation and can be a great option for travelers looking for a more authentic and wonderful experience.


Marrakech is generally quite safe. Beware of common scams in major cities around the world, such as:  

- Pickpocketing can take place in crowded places
- Try to negotiate the prices in souvenir shops
- Pay extra attention to your phone/camera.
