Tetouan has always been known for its capacity to integrate new cultural elements. As a result of this cultural blend people from all over the world feel welcomed, relaxed and comfortable regardless of their cultural, racial or religious backgrounds. Study abroad students may run into the same problems as those encountered anywhere else in the world, such as petty crime. Consequently, you will need to exercise caution while travelling and sightseeing. If anyone becomes particularly persistent, rude, or difficult to avoid, bring them to someone else’s attention. Moroccans are more than willing to intervene when they see someone in need of help.
