You must visit the Souk, that’s what Marrakech is known for! Be warned, they are dirty, loud, congested and once you make eye contact with a vendor or an item, you will be harassed until you buy it! They start very high... you can usually...More

We do not like organized tours so we did the Souks ourselves and got lost twice and paid a bit over the odds for two carpets. All human life is here, jewellery, stringed instruments,butcher shops, grim cafes, grotty food stores about the size of a...More

Went out for a stroll before our riad owner had a chance to give us our briefing so we were unprepared for the onslaught that a visit to the souks can be. Cast off all notion of being polite. Completely ignore all calls of Madame,...More

It’s a hustle bustle market place where merchants come with their wares. At night there are huge stand alone restaurants. You will find musicians,snake charmers, hennas. It’s a must visit place for it old char market. No credit cards accepted, careful for thieves and touts

The souks in Marrakech are so beautiful. I simply want to buy everything! You have to walk around a discover on your own the gems the souks hide. Amazing antique stores (my favorite), rugs, jewelry, leather goods, everything. Of course there is also Chinese stuff,...More

The souk is not too big, but it is possibel to get good impresion about Morocco goods. People are mostly friendly, but sometimes also too much pushy. It is good to visit it with someone, who is not first time cinfronted with the situation.

We had a great shopping trip to the souks. I got some lovely art and my friend got paper weight. The locals are so helpful. It’s very busy and lively so be prepared for that.

Such an interesting and varied area with so much going on. Beware of mopeds and carts. The whole souk was awash with life and smells and industry. Well worth a visit but get your reps advice first to avoid unnecessary situations.

Walking through the Souk’s is madness. You can get anything. The one thing I would suggest is knowing what you want and what you are willing to pay. Never pay what they offer as this is normally very high. You should t least get 50%...More

Questions & Answers
Destiny S
Several questions... The main item I’ll be looking for in Marrakech is one of the large metal hanging lamps (max 3’ long). Can anyone who’s purchased a similar item tell me what it cost and then how much it was to ship to the US? (Or other parts of the world to give me an idea of what to expect). Second question... I’m considering getting a guide for a few hours since we’ll only be in Marrakech for a day and I have very specific souks I’d like to visit, plus having to figure out how to ship things home... For those of you who got a guide, did you regret it? Can I get recommendations for a good guide who’ll let you customize where you go? Next question... I’m highly sensitive to deisel exhaust, so will be avoiding the main square where I’ve read mopeds are a problem. But will I be able to handle any part of Marrakech??? I don’t have asthma, but pollution is the kind of thing that will ruin my day and whole outlook on a country. Lastly, we will be going to the Monday market in the Ourika valley, so hopefully I’ll get most of my shopping done there— does anyone know if they sell lamps at that market?

The best place to ask would be at your hotel. Also the new city would be a good place to start.
