is morocco safe 2015 ?

The question everyone asks before coming to this beautiful country .
Below is a list of answers collected from the forum Reddit Travel
by people who have already visited the Morocco,

  1. Chance of terrorism is probably lower than in any given European city. Iraq/Syria are about as far from Morocco as Perth is to Madagascar. Chance of Ebola reaching there and becoming a threat is zero.
  2. Morocco and Algeria could be described as enemies, so all border crossings between the countries are shut and secured. Although the countries are neighbour, they are intentionally very isolated from each other
  3. Morocco is very safe. It is as open and western thinking as a Muslim country gets. Terrorisme risk seems to be fairly minimal as far as I know.
  4. Western tourists are very common and attacks against them are so rare as to be unknown really. There have been a few bombings, but there have also been bombings in London and other places you would go to without a 2nd thought. There is a possible risk but remember you are statistically more likely to be killed in a car related incident in Perth than suffer a terrorist attack  in Morocco.
  5. I’ve just left Morocco 2 days ago, I was in Casablanca and Rabat. I would say it’s perfectly fine, if you’ve only been in Australia you may find some things intimidating to begin with but that quickly passes. One thing you also have to realize is that it’s an entire world away from the likes of the situation in Syria and Ebola. It may seem incredibly close in the grand scheme of things but it really isn’t.
  6. It seems like they are being overly careful but just with anywhere be extra vigilant. Trip was awesome, didn’t make it down to Marrakech unfortunately but loved the Kasbah in Rabat. I was only there for a couple of days but definitely would love to go back and spend a whole bunch more time.
