WHAT TO EXPECT IN MORROCO
Language: The official language of Morocco is Berber and Arabic, in the Moroccan streets, you’ll hear a flurry of languages including English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Berber.
Plugs: Most plugs in Morocco are type C and type E. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. Plugs are usually two-pin in the round european style and some include a third, female contact to accept the grounding pin in the socket. A universal adapter will work for most electronics (be sure to get one with surge protection!) but you may need a converter for hair dryers and hot tools.
Time Zones: If you are traveling to Morocco, be careful with the clock. After decades of daylight savings time, the country has decided, to drop clock changes. While GMT and other time zones “fall back”, Morocco will stay the same. The country has decided to stick with a year round GMT+1 Time Zone. It’s hard to know if digital devices will automatically catch on to the new decision to stay on one time all year round, when they were clearly expecting to switch. For this reason, it might be worth dusting off your trusty old watch and setting it manually to GMT+1. You’d certainly hate to get to the airport only to find out that you are hours early, or late.
