Fès is known for its handicrafts, particularly its famous blue and white tiles, and is where you will find some of the best shopping in Morocco.
Arabic is the main language in Morocco, but French is widely spoken so it is easier to get around than in many other Arabic countries. People in Fès are exceptionally friendly and hospitable, and love to talk to travellers to boast proudly about their city.
If you speak with locals for any length of time, be prepared to be invited to their house for tea. This is a genuine and innocent offer, so don’t shy away from it - it is a great way to get to know people and to get a feel for life here.
