When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Rabat, they said:

"Rabat is the capital of Morocco and is a great place for expats to live. It is a modern city with a rich cultural heritage, and is home to a diverse population. Expats should be aware that the official language is Arabic, although French is widely spoken. It is important to be aware of the local customs and dress appropriately.
