Hectic Souk

Unforgettable experience - be prepared to barter. (If you say no - move on) Take care of personal belongings. Just about anything can be bought.

The Marrakesh souk is much better than the others I had seen in the country so far. Much cleaners and a little organized than others. Be careful at these souks, the prices are very high as the souks attract tourists. Always aim for half price unless you just want to donate your money. Refuse and walk away if not happy... More

A souk is a traditional arabic marketplace or bazaar. You will immediately fall in love with this one's vibe, colours and scents. At first it's a bit scary, but as you wandering around the fruits, vegetables, cosmetics, medications and bauble you will start to enjoy the atmosphere.

You can not miss out on the souks it was one of the highlights. We had a wonderful time making our way around the winding markets and you just must get list in there but you will always find your way back. Haggling is a must and is fun but please don't insult the vendors. You will want to bring... More

I loved the souks! Carpets, oil, spices, different food, couscous bowls ... You can easily spent hours there. The only bad part is the annoying and pushy owners who will try to sell you stuff even though you are just looking!

I recommend Marrakesh for 3 or 4 days max. The souks are exhausting to walk around! Most of it is pretty much junk and fake things and the owners can be really rude. Never take directions from anyone. Despite being annoying I never felt unsafe.

Jemaa el Fna Market Square is just what you would expect. Some love it, I for one, did not. The snake charmers failed to impress, wondering what these poor critters have been put through to perform as they do, the overladen donkeys labouring under their heavy loads and the many carriage horses on duty for endless hours standing in the...

The souks surrounding the Jemaa el Fna (Central Square) are well laid out and it is pretty difficult to get lost. After having followed a guide through the older sections earlier in the day, I went back after dinner so I could do some shopping on my own. I was able to locate the tanner / leatherworking souk, where I... More

It's not exactly like your average US shopping mall. Small winding alley's. Smells, noises, sights, a real sensory experience. Maze like as the sky is typically not visible. Vendors inviting you to explore their goods. "neighborhoods" of metal workers, spice venders, rugs, meats, poultry so much so see. Watch out for the donkeys. the push carts. Your senses on alert....
