Exploring Chefchaouen: because Morocco is more than Marrakech

For thousands of years Morocco's blue city of Chefchaouen remained relatively unknown, with visitors preferring to explore the country's capital city, Marrakech. 

But with the Instagram explosion, Chefchaouen is fast becoming the place to visit. And with photo opportunities like these, we're not surprised.

Most of the town is painted in varying shades of blue, so you won't have to wander far to find plenty of photo inspiration. 

We are in love! #instafamouscities
