It's a souk!

Large area with all the trappings of a souk. Plenty of local items and characters, too. And watch your pockets!

Unfortunately went round here and could easily get lost found the whole area a bit intimidating and it personally put me right off and I didn't want to go back

Visited with my wife, we loved Jemaa el fna but I could tell it was geared towards tourists more than it probably used to be, the souks on the other hand are another matter. Yes, the outer stalls are more modern but get in to the center of the souks and you will be transported to another world where all... More

Was great to visit for the experience, but otherwise too many locals trying to sell you things Standard process, whatever they are selling tell them you'll only pay 1/2

When ever I'm in Marrakech I do spend at least two or three days shopping in the souk. It is not all that cheap, but it is so fun. The most annoying thing is all the motorbikes. Noisy and speeding by ALL the time. Some tips: - haggle and bargain a lot. There is no rule of thumb - don't... More

The souk of Marrakesh is just like being in another world. The smells, the sights the culture and madness. I always love going into the souk however you must keep track of where your going as you don't want to get too lost and in any areas where the locals are telling you you shouldn't be here. The souk has... More

I found the souks the most original part of the visit. There are hundreds of shops with thousands of items and it requires time and s lot of talk since when it comes to price negotiation, the fun begins (at least for me). You can divide the price by five to start your discussion, but attention to the quality and... More

I went to Marrakesh as a immature 18 year old and loved it ; visiting again 37 years later was a risk especially taking a first time friend. But with a guide 200 dirums for 2 hours ( we had 4 hours ) was brilliant . Rasheed took us off the tourist trail ( as requested ) and we saw... More

Allow yourself to get lost in the souks. Wonder about, get a feel for what is there before purchasing anything. Remember, bargain for all items and walk away if you feel it is unreasonable.
