General Note: Pack Light so You Can Shop
In general, pack light so you can shop more. Remember, you’ll be traveling on a bus for 17 days across the entire country from mountain to sea to desert. Do you really want to lug around a bunch of stuff you can buy onthe ground in Morocco?
A trick I use is to being outfits I don’t wear much or would give away for this trip, then as I shop (caftans, harem pants, etc), l leave an item or two that I brought in the hotel rm or give away...

US citizens don’t need Visas for Morocco

Money (cash/credit cards).
Travellers’ cheques, I actually found to be more trouble than they're worth. They're essentially American cash you have to get changed, so stick to getting money out of Moroccan ATM's so you don't have to pay to exchange cash -
Morocco is a cash/carry culture
So, mostly we'll be doing ATM stops every 2 days. Bring your trip kitty (in cash) in and plan some clever ways to store your cash in different places (not all of it in the same wallet & money belts are candy for pickpockets)
containers to hide your cash
(old deodorant bottles, sunglass/eyeglass case, dental floss container, lipstick tube, etc)
(Atm stops will happen every two days)
night clothes (pack something that can double as daywear
Warm anorak/sweater/microfleece or denim jacket
1 Long-sleeved top (for evenings when mosquitoes are out).
1 Long trousers (zip-off trousers are very versatile).

light weight sleeping bag (blankets& beds provided)
