Chilled out atmosphere, good access to local villages. Easy to navigate once you get your bearings. Shop keepers not too pushy. The highlight of our mini tour of Morocco.

It is smaller than Fes and after a short time you learn to find the way around. Very good value products to buy and mostly of good quality.

All the Colours - Beautiful! Make sure to go up to the mosque on top of the hill at sunset for a panoramic view. My hotel was amazing, in the heart of the blue medina.

Really nice town to visit and browse around! Nice restaurants and local shops! It is a bit of a complicated road to get there but it is worth it certainly!

We spent several days wandering around and photographing the blue medina. It is unique in the world - loads of blue paint along with steps and alleyways.

So many things to see and so many friendly people. There are many restaurants too. If you chance upon a cake shop, go get the orange cake there - it's the best orange cake ever!

Chefchaouen is very small city, so you can just walk around the city easily. Just take photos from this blue-city, having fun!

An absolutely extraordinary place. A visit into another century. Tripadvisor would like me to say more. I'm torn between recommending it, and wanting to keep it a secret and have the place to myself.

The city has a rustic feel to eat. It is small but very charming. It is very friendly and fun to just wander around the Medina and look at the small shops available. Perhaps it took only a good 2 hours to explore the city, but when you have enough time in Morocco, this is an excellent city to vist.... More
