This place will provide you with the most beautiful pictures. It is small and quaint and the people don't hassle you like in the bigger cities. you can walk without a guide but do take a map. Everything is literally blue. and beautiful. The visual is so amazing around every corner. Worth spending a day or two if you have... More

The Medina in Chefchaouen would be my only choice of place to stay. It is far smaller than the Medinas in any of the other cities we visited, which made it easy to negotiate and pleasant to wander through. also for some reason I found the merchandise for sale in the shops so much more colourful and well presented tan...

We stayed for few days in Chefchaouen and every time we passed medina, it felt like we entering a fairyland all painted in blue. Loved it!

Chefchaouen is officially on my favorite travel destinations list! It was really special to visit the blue town of Chefchaouen. I have never been to a place like this! We came out the high season, so it wasn't overcrowded at all. It was peaceful and we could take pictures and just enjoy the place, walking around the small narrow streets,... More

Different to the larger cities in Morocco such as Fes or Marrakech, the vibe is more relaxed and it's easier to get to know the locals and understand their culture.

The most beautiful place in Marocco! The streets, the blue color all around! Worth every sacrifice! The peace and quiet, the town in general! Must visit!

This is a very unique and beautiful medina and easy to navigate through. although some sections are steep and there are stairs, the medina is relatively small and easy to find your way around. Unlike the dark medinas of the larger cities like Fes, the beauty of the buildings here are on the outside - whitewashed in blue and white... More

The medina is so beautiful to walk around and admire. Much more relaxed and quieter than the Fez medina and just so pretty. I could've wandered around all day taking endless amounts of photos of the medina and it's cute cats.

This is a small city and compared to the likes of Fes and Marrakech, the medina is tiny. It's super easy to navigate your way through and the people here seemed more disinterested in tourists. It goes without mentioning the medina is beautiful and you can't walk around a corner without wanting to stop and take another picture of the... More

Highly recommend, not for the shopping but purely for the beauty. I did go well past the Medina though, into the residential part. No matter where you go in the city, it's stunning. There's a little more to photograph (if that's what you like) in the medina since there's all the shops and all the bright trinkets to go with... More
