shorts?

My wife and I are going on a coach tour of Morocco in a couple of weeks, a daft question but what about wearing shorts, are there any recommendations or restrictions other than in Mosques.

CW_1, if you come to Taroudant, you will see ME walking around in long pants in all kinds of weather, regardless of the heat. And long sleeves usually. Shorts I wear at home.

12. Re: shorts?

The question of shorts is one that divides even my Moroccan friends. The sight of French tourists wearing shorts in the Fez Medina arouses a cross between shame and laughter. As Tim has responded saying the "shorts things" is old... well it is still considered respectful in Fez not to wear shorts, though many tourists do. In rural Morocco things are vastly different from the city of Marrakech and Marrakech is different to Fez. In general, avoid shorts (particularly for women) - but if you do wear them be prepared for some Moroccans to look at you as though you were wearing underwear in public. In Fez we have a game called "spotting the first knees of Spring"- in which local photographers send us (The View from Fez) the first photos of French tourists wearing shorts in public!

Sandy, it's refreshing to hear from someone who thinks as I do.

Here in Taroudant I am often disgusted with some of the tourists I see, men as well as women. Showing cultural consideration doesn't seem to enter their heads!

The first knees of Spring? I see them wearing shorts in January when it's cold enough to be wearing coats.

I give them meaningful looks, but say nothing.
