I don’t differ from the traditional food of Morocco. It’s all a very gastronomical country. When you enter to Chefchaouen, you will feel that you are in a different environment. The environs capture you and give you an impact you never will able to forget ever in your life. Eateries in Chefcouaen contributes well in your overall experience.

A Must visit an Old Blue City
Are you obsessed with the beauties of old cities? I’m I can feel those beauties affecting me in real. In Morocco, it is a privilege to have those experiences in the real world when in Morocco, especially in the gem of the country. The best time to visit Chefchouaen’s old city to explore is the offseason. I prefer to visit Morocco in the months October to December. I find quietness that time there and it gives me great pleasure deep inside.
There is a certain culture which impacts you un-urbanised feel, somehow slow from metropolitan life. Roaming in the old city and feel the colors of the city brought me an amazing experience. I bargained with the local shopkeepers on the handicrafts and the traditional things I wanted to bring back home. In Morocco, you have to bargain, if you don’t have that skill, you have to make it like a habit. It will benefit you.
Experiencing the blue shades of the city I come to know many things about that color. The most famous say is that the Jews once settled here and they painted the town as their choice. Moroccans then follow the beautiful tradition of painting their houses blue, they associate the color with the shade of seawater. Whatever is the reason, the blue and Chefchouen were made for each other and the match of both makes a perfect destination on earth deserves a visit.
It was amazing visiting Kasbah Museum
Wandering in the streets of the old Medina in Chefchouen will lead you to the best place in the city and that is Museum. For me, if you want to know all about the city, it is must visit the museum of that city, you will be known to the history and the present of the city. Kasbah Museum had done the same with me.
The Museum showcases the old musical instruments, and the traditional things tell you about the old lifestyle of the of Chefcheouen. It also has the special gallery to introduce you to the culture and the local rituals of the Gem of country, Chefchuaen.
If you are planning to set out for the Chefchouaen, know some final words, don’t miss to have the traditional shower there with the special luxury spa facilities in the town. You will be provided with every comfort of life in your Riad, the place you will reside being in Morocco. I wish you the very best time in Morocco!
