Fes is second largest city in Morocco and that fact can be seen anywhere in the city. It's overpopulated, its big and it's chaotic. Traffic is crazy, taxis are everywhere and if you come from Europe, it will be a whole new world. Also if you come from the airport, the white taxi will charge fixed price of 12 euros, and that price is at least 5 or 6 times higher then the regular price. The city is basically divided into two. The new Fes and the old medina. And that division is clear when you come here. New Fes is just like any other city with hotels, malls and food chain restaurants with some great coffee places. Old medina is, well, hard to describe. The streets are narrow and they are a real maze to navigate. It's easy to get lost. Imagine a maze where even google maps are not helping, because there is no path drawn in the application. So, you will get lost, which can be a good and a bad thing. That depends on the fact that you can stumble on some really nice streets, or that you will get lost and some locals will try to help you, but there is a catch. After they show you the way out, they will ask for money and situation can be difficult to deal with, so come prepared. Everything that needs to be seen is in the old medina. Especially the tannery. The smell can be strong for some people, because, well, leather. The rest of the medina is a sight to see, giant walls, palaces and a huge market, where every house on the street is some kind of a store. Old medina is basically a giant market. Also be aware of the people who will try to confuse you with misdirections and sell you some shady stuff or hustle you into their restaurant. The taxis are incredibly cheap, 10 minute drive for 1 euro, give or take a few cents. Also force them to use counter and keep an eye on the map and surrounding, they wil drive you in circles. And the last thing I want to mention is food. And food in Fes is cheap and so delicious. The best food I have ever eaten. Forget about pica and burger, here tajine, paella and couscous are winners, try them all.
What is the most amazing destination you’ve ever been, guys? ✈️💙⁉️🌍
This is a question that I always find very difficult to answer. It’s almost impossible to compare trips and destinations... sometimes a trip sticks in our head forever but mainly because of the experiences we lived, the people we spent our time with, the feelings and thoughts after the trip... I can’t say what is my favorite country from a traveler’s point of view but I know which trips changed me somehow and made my cry like a little girl on my flight back home. And all of them happen to be located in Africa. But I’m always open to new adventures and countries so I’m really interested in knowing more about your most memorable travel experiences (even if they are located in your own country of origin) 🌎🌍🌏
