We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Morocco. They wrote...

"One new challenge was adapting from American culture where women can easily go most anywhere unaccompanied without a thought about it. And, no one sees that as strange. But, in a smaller city such as Khemisset, women travel in family groups with other female relatives, or with male relatives, or with their children and its not common for a woman to walk the streets, or travel by oneself. In my family, most of the daily shopping for food, etc., is done by men. It actually takes a lot of the burden of running the household off the women," said a member in Khemisset, Morocco.

"Expats in Morocco often find the local culture to be quite different from their own, which can be challenging to adjust to. Language barriers can be difficult to overcome, as many locals do not speak English. Additionally, the local customs and traditions can be difficult to understand and adhere to, as they are often quite different from those of the expat's home country. Furthermore, the local cuisine can be quite different from what expats are used to, which can be a challenge to adjust to. Finally, the climate in Morocco can be quite extreme, with hot summers and cold winters, which can be difficult to adjust to," remarked another expat who made the move to Morocco.
