While im Marakesh you definitely have to try the Souks in Medina. I advise people to go to visit the Souks late during the day since they stay opened until 3 o clock in the morning. Its a wonderful experience.

We’d never have navigated this place without a local guide and while we suspect a lot was “engineered” for us it was still very enlightening.

Visited the souk with my family after hearing a great deal about it. It is full of everything from fossils found in the local area, fake football kit, carpets, rugs. The experience is well worth the visit.

A real eye-opener for someone from western Europe - crowded, mopeds weaving through narrow passages, people calling to you from stalls, restaurants and shops and of course lots of colourful good and spices, and smells. Very hot when we visited in July but some undercover.

These streets were very crowded with vendors trying to sell us things here and there - also very easy to get lost without a guide!! Luckily after our guide showed us the way, we were able to find our way back home.

Wow! 12,000 souks in the Médina! A true shoppers dream. Highly recommend a private tour for 4 hours first—-we loved Noura Kassimi (local English speaking guide. Noura2102@hotmail.com. She gave us an overview and took us to areas we were interested in—-not just the typical souvenir...More

i hate them too! just avoid the market square, which is hard to. so, the alternative is to walk on the sides than passing through the centre. otherwise, the souk is a must visit!

Most airlines on the route require luggage to be booked in advance so it might depend on the type of your ticket. The idea to have a rolled up kitbag/duffle in your single outgoing luggage is ok if the airline allows one... More
