Taking pictures is one of the things you should know about while you are in Morocco. So if you want to take pictures it’s better that you ask first because some people don’t like it, and some of them are payable, for example, the snake charmer (in Jamaa Alfna at Marrakech) if you want to take a picture it will cost 20 DH or maybe more.

This note, especially for women, and should know about it. The people of Morocco are friendly, respectful, and most important, they are conservative. That’s why most of the people dress decent and shy, and some of them consider the short dress is disrespectful for the culture and the tradition, especially in villages, small towns, and holy places. 
So dressing with modesty and properly will be nice, and it is one way to keep yourself from harassment of some men (which may or may not happen with you), but it is advisable to not dress shortly or revealed clothes.

Ramadan is a month-long Islamic holiday. A sacred month when people fast, which is not limited only to food, but also includes water or any drinks, cigarettes, and even sex. Muslims fast from dawn till dusk, They eat a meal before sunrise (Suhor) and break their fasting after sunset (Iftar) with friends and family. This holy month follows the lunar pattern, so it moves 10 days forward on the Gregorian calendar every year.
Many travelers tend to avoid coming to Morocco during this sacred month when Most shops, restaurants get closed and most of the streets are empty. But the thing is that the shops, restaurants, hotels, bazaars and everything with touristic interest are open and working during this time of the year.
You should know that Ramadan might just be the best time of year to visit Morocco, especially if you don’t like crowded places because Ramadan is an off-Month for tourists. You will get the chance to try some unique special food that is popular in Ramadan, and you may not find it at another time of the year. As well as gaining some cultural and religious insights that might be overlooked or impossible to experience other times of the year.
There’s no reason to put your plans aside, while you can have the best experience and adventure during this spiritual sacred Month.
