Chechaouen is Small

Sometimes when you are travelling around, exploring various places. Small towns/village kind of do it for you because you can explore majority of the place in a day or two and you will be fulfilled in only a short period of time.

Chefchaouen does just that! It is a small town about 4 hours drive away from Fes and not too far from Tangier, thereby making it pretty easy to reach and a perfect place when trying to get away from the craziness of the bigger cities.

Small is sometimes perfect!
