My daughter is going to have a flight with one day stopover in Casablanca. Are there places to be avoided in Casablanca for a single young woman? Which ones might they be?
Casablanca in general is safe and the police is visible almost in all areas which makes you even feel safer. Also Morocco is one of the favorite countries for tourists in north Africa (maybe the first one) and it did not get that position if it wasn't safe enough for tourists. Just stick to these simple rules:
- Don't go out late at night, unless in populated areas like beaches, clubs, traditional shopping areas, .etc.
- Don't go to side roads or alleys if you are walking.
- Don't talk to any strangers that offer help. Usually a young attractive innocent looking lady with a man in a suit and they speak few languages and have some tourism brochures which might makes people trust them. These people will try to convince you to take their tourist tour but once you ride with them or go with them to the office you will be robbed somehow or other.
Other than that, enjoy the city and the food there. They have very delicious local dishes you must try some of them.
