I have been here numerous times now and every time is a great experience. The smells from the food stalls, the music from artists, the busyness it all adds to the feeling. There can be a lot of hassle but smile and say no and you will have no trouble because the people in Marrakesh are all so nice and... More

What an experience. If you don't want hassled do not make eye contact and better to just ignore completely than saying no. Our first day a woman forced henna upon my hand,very messy as I was trying to pull away saying no. She said for free for free but I knew this was not the case so I kept pulling... More

This is the most famous square in Africa as I was told and just lots of the exotics you expect visiting Morroco. Plenty of tourist traps and fake guides. Ask for your hotel/road before going there. When there, enjoy the atmosphere.

When you go to Morocco you MUST visit Jemaa el-Fnaa during the day and at night. Shopping by day, food vendors by night. As two females, petite in size, I felt totally safe.

Very busy, lots of hassle off sellers. Easy to get lost but beware of men offering to show you the way then demanding money. Almost any offer of help comes with a price ticket. We got stung when a man offered to show us the tannery market - we were taken to s shop, pressured to buy the charged 200Mad... More

In one night I tried the menu at stand no.50 and nothing happened, bad :) Me and my wife tried our luck and choose this table, where we eat 1/4 of lamb head, brain and tongue - all tasty. All cost 60dh ~ 6€

Visited morroco for a week and visited jamaa el-fnaa twice a day. Used to go during the day with family. Have lunch there. Then during the night we would go and do shopping there. The night time atmosphere is totally different to the day atmosphere. Extra extra busy at night. Do not buy anything from the street. I brought some... More

We had nice moroccan street food in this area but I must say that the moroccan food at our hotel was better.
