The place is all you thought it was going to be. On Sunday we saw all the local vendors bringing their fresh produce. It was cool to see that. We also found very interesting to see the whole bread baking process. Women make the bread...More

We stayed within the Medina, just beside Hotel Continental. From what I gather, Tangier was neglected by the country's previous ruler but is now in the process of refurbishing. The approach from the port is impressive with the new mosque and the newly made fortress...More

Although I did not explore all parts of the souk, I found it disappointing. A lot of the goods for sale are not very good quality, and some of them are likely not from Morocco. One also sees some of the same things over and...More

rTangier Medina is big, but not too big and not over run with tourists. Get a real flavour of Moroccan life without too much hassle. You might get lost but will soon find your way out. We enjoyed ambling around with the locals and avoiding...More

The Medina in Tanger has been my first. We spent two days there and I cannot really put enough into words the mix of emotions and contradictions we have lived. Having our hotel near the Grand Socco, we spent at least 30-40 minutes to find...More

To a person from Western civilization, Tangier's medina is as unusual as it is interesting. There are a lot of interesting buildings to see which are very different from ones in Western cities.

Narrow streets with plenty of shops selling everything from tourist trinkets to leateher boots, bags and jackets. Place doesn't feel as comfortable as the other souks and Medinas of Morocco but it is safe just be vigilant. Also if you're buying then haggle, go in...More

Probably worth spending a couple of days to enjoy the place and not feel that you're rushing things. That way you can enjoy the scenes and also take in a few of the chilled out places to stop for a snack or a drink.

We travelled with children ranging from 10 to 15. Regarding safety, I felt completely safe as it relates to crime. However, the number of people can be unsettling with small children I suppose. Make sure you are holding... More
