Lots of food stalls, some trinket vendors around the outskirts. The vendors are very aggressive and the crowd is dense, but we didn't feel unsafe. Not much to see, but its a good experience just to watch the people and feel the buzz of the crowd around you.

Maybe go there once but after that you've seen it. It's very touristic and everyone tries to make money from you. Beware of the henna women, they almost force you to do henna (they simply grab your hand even if you say no and tell you it's a present but afterwards they want you to pay and also way to... More

Every thing comes to life! You will get surround be fantastic smells of food and music, there will be cobras and exotic... More

Went to the market based on previous reviews. However the persons luring you into their "special" place is 1000 times more aggressive than the daily salesman in the Souk. You dont get 1 second of thinkingtime to consider a choise and the reason might be they are all serving the same. Our vendor took the order and placed food on... More

A long weekend in Marrakech isn't complete without a visit to Jemaa with-Fnaa. It's so different to European cities, the noise, sights and people make it a must see place both day and night. The traders are friendly and just the right level of forward for you to get involved but not pushy. We went every day and one day... More

Lots of options for things to buy. Beware of the aggressive women there who will take your hands and paint henna or put jewelry on them before trying to rip you off. Great place for souvenirs and to feel the vibes.

Marrakech is a very love-hate destination. For all the vibrant performances in Jemaa el-Fnaa, the persistent approach of the performers is borderline uncomfortable sometimes. And lots of people trying to trick you into something here, be sure to keep your wallets and valuables close. That being said, I can't imagine a trip to Morocco complete without visiting Jemaa el-Fnaa. But... More

This is a very busy square with lots of people and lots of various sales activities (little Lego-type restaurants that are built by the owners every evening and moves away during the night, henna masters, fresh fruit juice selling spots, comics, etc.). It must see while you are in Marrakech.
