Ignorance. It is the best weapon. you will find many men staring at you or want to talk with you but simply ignore them and don’t stop walking. My advice to you is to wear sunglasses that will help you ignore these people as they will not know where your eyes are exactly looking.

 On your Morocco travel package, keep your family members informed about your location just for your safety purpose.

Preferably do not to drink alcohol or only have it in limited quantity.
