Chefchaouen is the cherry on top of my trip to Morocco. It is less touristy than Marrakesh and Fez, less busy, the people are nicer, and more relaxing. Not to mention about the the blues everywhere, it is surreal. Beautiful!

Its not quite Marrakech on the getting lost level but it was fun...to be alittle loss and pay some boys 5 dirham to guide me more to my road! Its just as beautiful at night as in the day...I really did not go out in the day as I lounged around on my sunny balcony. The restaurants are mainly quite... More

I'd never heard of Chefchaouen but was told it was a beautiful place tucked in the Rif Mountains, and it was. All higgledy-piggledy wrapped round the mountains with old defensive walls running round the top of the towns & beautiful views out over the valley. I LOVED the blue,all buildings & doorways painted various shades of blue how uplifting. Great... More

Beautiful with all the white and blue and provides lots of photo opportunities. Interesting shops and great to walk around and explore. Nice and quiet and the shop owners were not pushy at all. Loved it!

Uphill and downhill, that’s the fact in Chefchaouen, so wear your best walking shoes. Surrounded by mountain, so the weather changed easily, one minute was rain, and suddenly it’s so windy. The path was much smaller than in other cities, but so lovely with the blue color. No motorbikes nor bicycles, it’s safer for us, the pedestrians ;-) again, and... More

Chefchaouen is one of the most charming small out of the way towns you will ever visit. Many of the people here speak Spanish. You might find some hand made items and handicrafts that you would not find anywhere else. The charm of this blue colored town is summed up when you read this theory as to why it is... More

Chefchaouen, or Chaouen is a must see. High located, painted in blue, filled with nice moroccan locals and you can even pass by some streets filled with cats. Went to this amazing place with a group of friends and the taste was amazing. Here, we can find people trying to sell us all sorts of things, amazing natural oils, pottery,... More

You can get lost without troubles ! Just take your time to walk around the beautiful blue streets. Head up and right to get to the amazing Ras Elma at the bottom of the mountains and get down then by following the river course

This is why you came to Chefchaouen, to walk around the Old City and see the beautiful blue buildings. It is easy to just wander and take pictures of all the beautiful buildings and shops around you. Shop owners and locals are less aggressive and nicer than in Marrakesh and other cities, but can still be pushy.
