Before speaking about what things you should be taking with you, you need to check if your country requires a Visa or not to get into Morocco. Check out if you need a visa or not.
The passport is the most important thing you have to pack for your travel. It’s like your ID when you travel away as a tourist. And it’s better to keep it with you all the time just in case.


Before you travel, make sure your passport is valid for at least six months following the date of entry.

2. Don't forget your Medicines

Your prescribed medicines (if you have them) or tablets that you take daily, must be the important and first thing to pack during your travel,.

you may forget to take them while you are amazed by the stunning sightseeing of Morocco, so it will be better if you set an alarm to help you with that.

They can be useful for headaches, muscle aches, period pains, and especially stomach aches because you may not get along with the powerful and new spices in Morocco. Don’t forget to bring some with you, just in case. 

II- Pick the right Luggage :

3. Pick the right Backpack/Suitcase:

Choosing the right backpack/suitcase to take with you might be confusing too, which depends on you and the time you are staying, maybe you’re the kind of a light traveler or maybe you are not.

I would like to recommend you to use the packing cubes, especially if you using a suitcase, to stay organized, and know-how and where you put your stuff in. Instead of digging looking for some specific item, you’ll know right away where it is and you can simply pull out the cube it’s packed in.

Things to Consider When You Selecting the Right Traveling Backpack :

 

Comfort is One of the most important things you have to look for in Your backpack. Choose a backpack with padded straps (Padded Shoulder Straps, Padded Hip belts, Load-lifter straps, Sternum straps) that will help distribute the weight, not just on your shoulders. Check out this guide to help you have good use of your backpack straps and let your backpack fit you Properly.
The multiplicity of the compartment and pockets can be part of your comfort because, as much as the number grows, as much as you can be organized and comfortable while you packing, and you will have quick access to your belongings and your important items.

You don’t want your gear or your clothes to get wet, so you better choose a waterproof backpack or a backpack with a special rain cover.

Nylon is preferred simply because of its strength and durability. As well as it is also water-resistant. Ripstop nylon is famous for its resistance to tearing.

 

Every traveler has different needs and requirements, and someone staying for a month, is not like someone staying for a week or just for a couple of days. That’s where backpack volumes change among travelers, So if you are taking a backpack :

  • Under 35L: it’s a backpack considered a daypack, and now that you coming to Morocco, 1 or 2 days won’t be enough to satisfy you after visiting this country and seeing one of its corners.
  • 40-45 L: This is the recommended size for the most lightweight travelers, it gives you extra space to pack clothes for 3-7 days. As well as you will also be free to move around with your belongings.
  • 50-65L: is for those who need extra clothing or gear, or maybe you like more space for souvenirs, which I promise you will find a lot that you may wanna take with you from Morocco.

Everyone likes to travel comfortably, so choose the lightest travel backpack and pardon yourself for the extra weight. Choose lightweight fabrics, because the materials a backpack is made of can affect the weight.

 

Packing Tip :

  When it comes to packing, Saving space while you packing is the best way to pack. Roll your clothes up rather than folding them if it takes up less room, and that depends on you and how you like them. But remember to keep the heavy stuff at the bottom and put the stuff that leaks in plastic bags and things that you use much or you’ll need as soon as you arrive at your destination (like toiletries) at the top.
