It's no wonder that tourists flock to Chefchaouen: this humble town is the embodiment of almost every Moroccan cliche. The pituresque medina, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Rif Moutains, is filled whitewashed homes with distinctive, powder blue accents.
The main bus station is a couple of kilometres south of the medina.
There are plenty of petit taxis to ferry you around town (make sure its metred, or else agree on a price before you start your trip), but most of the town, and certainly the medina are easily traversed by foot.
Accommodation can be tight in the peak periods (mid-July to September) so its advisable to book ahead.
Regular buses depart from the long distance bus station (see 'Get Around') to nearby Tangier, Tetouan, Meknes and Fes, while there are also daily buses to Rabat and Casablanca. Grand taxis are also available from the bus station.
