Hello Everyone
I found a package for Morocco and good airfare. My only concern is that the tour package ends the day of my birthday and the trip ends in Marrakech, so I was considering staying an extra day so I can spend my birthday in Morocco and not traveling back to the states. I however am planning on traveling alone, so my other concern is how safe is it for a female to travel to Morocco? I am not worried about the tour since I will be with other people and I will not be wondering about alone, however I am concerned about my last day/evening in Marrakech. Is it safe for me to wonder alone? What are some good things to do at night?

Thank you all!

Providing you are prepared to take the same simple, sensible precautions that you would take in any city, yes, it's very safe. Levels of personal crime are actually lower than our southern European neighbours.

I agree with markwillen. I would not hesitate to be alone in Marrakech, but be sensible. You can visit the food market on the big square and walk in the bazars alone with no problem. But avoid the small alleys without light. Have a great time and happy birthday!
