Welcome to Tangier, Morocco
Tangier is one of Morocco's port cities located just under Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar. I loved the energy of this city when I visited and was very excited to be somewhere so different from Western Europe. The city had a surprisingly atmosphere spite of its easy access on ferry from Spain; I assume most travelers tend to just pass through on their way to other destinations. Tangier, however, is full of bustling markets and unique architecture and instilled me with an immediate fondness of Morocco. After leaving, I went southeast to Chefchaouen.
The medina is the center of the city with all of the narrow windy streets. To me, these are the most fun streets to walk through. Most likely, your hostel will be located within the medina.
