The Kingdom of Morocco carries so much history. The land has been occupied by a few empires and many dynasties before its transformation into the Morocco of today, a fact of history spanning over 1,200 years old.

The North African country was once occupied by Christian Berbers, Phoenicians, Romans, Arab dynasties and Carthaginians, who built their empires when they inhabited the land.

Decades after, Morocco, despite its religious inclination as an Islamic country, is blessed with a rich culture which is a blend of Arab, Berber, European and African influences.

The North African country has also placed a high premium on tourism as a strategic industry for the growth and sustainability of its economy. Several authoritative outlets have listed Morocco as the most preferred destination for tourists in North Africa.

It is advisable to do a little research before visiting a new place. It will make your visit a more relaxing experience. Some locals may take offense to certain things a tourist does, forgetting the tourist is a foreigner and is oblivious to the rules and regulations pertaining to the place.

However, no matter how much research is done before a trip, there are certain traditions that only people from that country will understand and appreciate.

Here are certain unique Moroccan traditions that only Moroccans can relate to.
