Chefchaouen by MOROCCO DESERT SHOW, The Bleu City of Morocco: ( Chefchaouen or Chaouen)
Chefchaouen boasts one of the most enjoyable medinas in Morocco. Unlike many medinas in Morocco, the medina of Chefchaouen still houses a large percentage of the city’s residents. As pleasant as it is walking through the old walled city, a stroll up and down through is made more pleasant by the sight of its residents living, for the most part, as they have for the last few hundred years. Unlike the medina of Marrakech or the Kasbahs of Tangier and Rabat, foreigners haven’t really been able to purchase old houses and convert them to upscale riads so many of the local populace still actually lives in the Medina. The people of Chefchaouen are, for the most part, really pleasant and foreigners can stroll through the blue walled medina without being harassed by touts and venders too much. Most of the shop keepers have a relaxed attitude and will not hassle you. Children play in the streets and, unlike Fez, they will generally not ask you for money. If anything, the children of Chefchaouen might ask you to play with them, which is not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
