What are the best places to visit in Morocco?

My answer to What are the best places to visit in Morocco? on Quora

We just spent six weeks travelling around Morocco. Our favourite town was Chefchaouen, up in the mountains—it has an incredible medina (walled city center) painted in different shades of blue. It’s a lot more relaxed than other parts of Morocco, though if you got there first (as we did) you may not appreciate it as much. It’s a three hour bus journey from Fez, so I’d suggest visiting Fez first.

If you do visit Fez, keep an eye out for Café Clock—a fantastic Australian-managed café that makes a welcome quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the medina. Great food (try the camel burger) and they do cultural stuff like cookery classes as well.
