Tangier is a fast-changing city with a growing economy and population. The Medina - the original walled city - is a chaotic maze of alleys and markets with shops, restaurants and markets in which at one time 40,000 people lived, now reduced to 25,000 On...More

I thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the Medina. Unlike Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, Tangier's Medina is the focal point for local residents buying and selling goods. There's an incredible variety of stores with a number geared towards tourists. But the fun is poking your head into the...More

The Medina of Tangier is vibrant. It is full of people, shops, private residences and accommodation. The narrow, winding laneways confuse you to start but after a while you start to find your way around more easily. It feels safe and it feels authentic. Plenty...More

If you are coming only for a day trip from Spain the local shopping possibilities are quite limited compared to Marrakech, but there are still some interesting shops. One winding street starts from Grand Socco food market inside the wall ending at Petite socco, the...More

Brilliant old town atmosphere. Interesting alleys. A lot to see. Unfortunately a lot of too pushy sellers, who try to sell hats, wallets, rings, and shirts to any non-Moroccon looking person.

No doubt the streets through historic Tangier were more fun in the past but they remain an exciting place to head off especially on market day and at night. Things are open late and there is plenty of colour and movement.

Difficult to negotiate in the sense that there were empty zones, very narrow lanes and plenty of rubbish. So much better to be found elsewhere in Morocco.

Are you staying there or coming by ferry from Spain. There are lots of wonderful shops off the main 'drag' / square. Day trippers are guided just up the main drag and to shops where the guide will, most likely, get a kick... More
