Avoid the Leather
Shopping in Chefchaouen is hard to resist. There's so much to choose from and so many interesting shops in hidden alleys and corners. The clothes are slightly different in this town in the Rif Mountains of Morocco. Make sure to check out the woolen, hand-woven tunics that the Blue City is known for. Just avoid the leather goods, they aren't made locally but are instead shipped in from Fes. Therefore, tourists pay an added tax that's unnecessary. Wait, and shop for leather goods when you get to Fes!
