The suqs are the reason to be in Marrakech. In my opinions it's even bigger and better than the Grand Basar in Istanbul. Don't forget: Never pay more than 50% of his start offer!

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!
