A village like a sea, but it is not close to sea or do not have seaview :) City of the blues... City of the warm people... You should visit!

We went before the peak of tourists and the city still, I felt, lacked authenticity. It's gorgeous and full of random things you can buy but it caters highly to the tourists. If you want n authentic Moroccan experience this is not the place to go.

This town has such character & charm. I loved it! There are lots of little streets, but it is actually kind of hard to get lost here. You can tour around look at the little shops, have a tea or some lunch. The walls are all painted blue and it looks amazing. The streets are tiny and not made for... More

We loved the blue city and all it had to offer. We took a hike to the Spanish Mosque in the hills around the town. We saw first hand how the locals shop ( daily), wash clothes in the mountain streams and use donkeys to move everything around the town. Streets are too narrow for motor vehicles except motorcycles, so... More

You must put this city on your bucket list. This history of this walled city will match some of the best in Europe. We were here for 3 days, only spent the late afternoons and evenings here. May not be enough to do without planning added activities.

the old town of Chefchaouen is one of my favourite places all around the country of Morocco, small alleys and beautiful decorations on the buidlings, all the blue colors comes from the indigo blue rocks that keeps the mosquitos away, i love that idea. The Atmospher is very nice by the evening time to go out and enjoy the clean... More

the colours of the buildings make this medina special. lots of little alley ways to walk around. if you are visiting Marrakesh it's better to hold on till you get there to do any shopping

My wife and I have been hitting up all of the urban cities in Morocco during our road trip. This town was the perfect reset to get some R&R prior to heading down to Fes. One thing to note, there is NO ALCOHOL in this quaint town.

I know you aren't supposed to use/promote unofficial guides in Morocco but I met Hamza in Chefchaouen who hooked me up with (I'll call him a driver) a driver in Fez. On the way to Fez, I called him (get a local sim card - see below!) to see if another solo traveler could catch a ride. He picked us... More

Small and easy to get around. It is absolutely beautiful and a photographers paradise though be aware not everyone is happy to be photographed so proceed with manners and a sense of humour. Not the best shopping in Morocco, so if you are visiting other towns, save your money and concentrate on the aesthetics.
