Chefchaouen (old city) was everything we imagined - and more! It was well worth the long hours of travel by night train, then by bus. We took the night train from Marrakech around 8.30pm and arrived in Tangier at around 7am. We took the sleeping bunks, and it was clean and comfy. We were planning to tour Tangier after buying...

A beautiful small medina with lots of friendly people and wonderful shops. We got lost because it can be confusing going up and down and around, but that only gave the additional fun to the exploring. The people were so kind with giving the directions. All the blue houses were just a wonderful sight and how people decorate the streets... More

Chefchaouen is a small city, but it is very beautiful. Traditionally everything in the city is painted in cobalt blue and white (excluding old fortress). This gives to the city very romantic view.

After the intensity of Marrakech and Fez it was a relief to wander Chefchaouen's medina. It's small and while there are touts outside the restaurants, you face the aggressive sales tactics of the big cities.

One of my favourite places in all of Morocco ! It's so beautiful and I visited in Nov so it wasn't rammed full of tourists and lovely to walk around. It's safe to go around without a guide and you shouldn't get lost. Cats everywhere !

The alleys and winding lanes are lovely. The cafes offer a welcome break from hiking the Rif mountain. The souk area was colorful and the goods varied. The vendors were helpful and did not pressure us at all.

The call to prayer echoes in the streets. Cats steal bites from attended plates and tourists bargain with street vendors steps away from outdoor cafe tables. Alleyways wind around in the dark so it's probably best not to venture too late at night. Chefchaouen has an incredible energy. Maybe it's the fact that it is located in the mountains. Or... More

hire a guide to get an insiders view. you can have great cous cous lunch for less than $4. in the evening sit at a cafe in the main square and sip mint tea, watch the tourists and locals parade by. Be polite yet firm to the people trying to get you into the cafes or shops. Never be rude.... More

Wherever you are staying, it is absolutely worth it to make a trip out to Chefchaouen. If you look/ are western, it can be a little intimidating to go without a guide, you will most likely be badgered to buy all types of things every two minutes or so, so I definitely recommend a guide. The whole city is very... More
