The taste and texture of Moroccan food is unlike anything we’d ever tried before.
Looking for bread wasn’t difficult: Every corner of the sloping streets had homemade bread baked in wood-fired ovens.
At restaurants, we were served typical Moroccan dishes of couscous, fish, spices and vegetables.
We couldn’t leave the restaurant without a cup of freshly made mint tea! This is a tradition in Morocco, not just for the companionship, but for the health benefits as well.
In the town square, get yourself a cheap breakfast at Plaza Uta el-Hammam, and for lunch or dinner, we highly recommend Restaurant Populaire Bab Ssour.
Waking up early in the morning really pays off. We got to the rooftop of our riad and enjoyed one of the most magical sunrises during our trip.
At the end of the day, hike to the top of a hill near the Spanish Mosque where you’ll be rewarded with a gorgeous sunset.
All the narrow alleys and steep climbs in the Medina (old blue city) were an awesome place to get lost.
Each corner we turned, the walls were a different shade of blue.
Chefchaouen is a popular shopping destination. From wool garments to woben blankets, it offers many native handicrafts that aren’t available anywhere else in Morocco.
The goat cheese is also popular, and definitely one of our favourite side dishes.
We didn’t do this ourselves, but we’ve heard some really good experiences from fellow travelers!
Here are three things you should do if you’d like a break from the Medina:
Our next destination was Fez, and taking the bus from Chefchaouen is the best way to get there.
We were surprised by the beautiful scenery during this trip.
Our friends Nick and Hannah from Salt in our Hair spent 3 days in Morocco’s Sahara desert. Here’s why you shouldn’t skip it, and how to do it.
Visit the oldest and largest Medina in North Africa, find local handicrafts, and visit impressive religious sites when you travel to Fez.
