Walking along the medina, you may pass without noticing by some historical buildings and places, hidden behind the displays of the sellers, or in the dark of the narrow streets. Fountains, palaces, and medersas worth a look. The sad thing is that non-Muslims must stay out of the religious buildings and only peeping from the doors you may have an...more

VThis fabulous medieval shopping mall has... everything. You just have to stop and... bargain. Believe me, with more or less tea, with more or less money, you are going to buy tons of unexpected crafts, clothes, spices and... no idea, but you'll find out. This is the strongest experience in Morocco. From my first to my second visit, the centre of...more

The railroad was built by the labor of Vichy prisoners and the camp was located near Tendrara like this one. Now there are only ruins there but it says it is the best-preserved camp along Moroccos eastern border. Unfortunately I could not go and visit it because it is desolate dirty piste and I had normal car only and for this trip is necessary to...more
Between Tendrara and BouArfa is nothing, only you, the desert and blue sky. And train tracks, without train. Only tracks going North to Oujda or South to BouArfa, almost hidden in the sand and gravel. And of course road, paved road following the railroad or vice versa.You can join the road even if you come from one other side than from Oujda. As...more

Favorite thing: BouArfa is not big city and not much of the old BouArfa is left, I would believe. Now it is new houses almost everywhere with wide main street with a little shops, coffee shops, a few restaurants etc. CTM bus and other local buses have bus station there.
Nothing much of important interesting things are there.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of the city is the worst mint tea I have ever drinking in Morocco. Normally I drink tea without sugar , but this was too bitter so I took a little sugar and then a little more and little more and ... but tea was still too bitter and also sweet at the same time. So if you wish to have the worst tea go and drink it at Champs Elysee coffee on the main street, just across the street, opposite the Hotel Sahara.
But, in hotel Sahara is not wifi while at Champs Elysee they have, perfect working wifi.Related to:
