So much to see! Loved getting dinner (or just "cocktails") at a spot with outdoor seating to people watch. There's always someone trying to sell you something. Polite and firm no usually does the trick. If the henna ladies grab your hand, pull it away quickly!

It livens up of an evening, full of colour and sparkle. Too many beggars and people trying to get you to their stalls. Nearby all the souks but defiantly worth a visit.

There are not many places like this one in the world i guess, however all those people are very pushing and never let you in peace.. very disturbing especially when you are not looking for something to buy or eat in the area.

This was my second visit it was far better that the first one that was made by day time. Much more people and music. It was excellent, much more than I was expecting. People were nice, and more likely to do deals. I felt save at every moment. Although be careful without motorists because they are very disrespectful and crossing... More

You could actually spend a day here easy and be enthralled by what you will see. Monkeys, snakes and dancers. Fresh OJ and the bustle of daily Moroccan life. Be prepared because at night they turn it up a few notches and the fun really begins

This was absolutely full of vendors trying to sell their products. It's a wonder they're all able to stay open when they're all selling essentially the same products. It's a very touristy place to go and nearly everyone that you photograph bugs you until you throw some durhams their way. Monkeys on leashes you can take photos with, water guys... More

Wow! The square and the souks are all amazing! Really really enjoyed the hustle and bustle. You really do need to be able to haggle, I loved the haggling part and got 50-70% off every purchase I made! There are lots of snakes and monkeys which I found very sad to see but the whole atmosphere overall is incredible. The... More

This is The happening place in Marrakech, especially in the evenings. By day you can wander( get lost) in the many souks leading off the main square. At dusk the hawkers, entertainers and restaurateurs take over but you need to keep your wits about you. It feels as though all of Marrakech descends upon this square mile. No lack of... More
