Tétouan was the first city I visited in Morocco, driving there from Ceuta, and it was probably hmm... the worst place I had seen in Morocoo.
My first impressions from Morocco were very bad to be honest. I thought in Tetouan: how could I choose Morocco, what a big mistake haha.
Fortunately moving south day after day Morocco seemed better and finally I found Morocco a very interesting, exciting destination. And I found my Moroccan trip the most interesting holiday I have ever had.
My first impressions from Tetouan (in early morning time):
1. The main square Place Hassan II was stinking, dirty, full of garbages and wastes (it was early morning and a few Arab men were cleaning the place),
2. Dirty, stinking locally, ugly, neglected medina (old arab city) with all stores closed that time,
3. Strange, dark-skin men in jellabias looked at me with a great interest like at invider from space but without any smile,
4. I couldn't find for a long time any clean place to drink cofee and eat something, I tried to ask natives but nobody could speak English,
5. The town looked grey and sad after a short rain.
- Pros:Sorry, I didn't see any that time, maybe quite good cofee with local "croissant
- Cons:Dirty, stinking, ugly old town
- In a nutshell:Go there to check how it changed for better since 1998!
There is no normal sewage system in the most of medina. All liquid rubbish flows in the middle of some streets. I have... more travel advice
The medina was dirty, ugly, neglected and even stinking in some places. And all stores were closed when I visited... more travel advice
