All of the “streets” are a little intimidating at first but once you walk around a little, it’s a great experience. Many great products and negotiation is a part of the experience. But the best part is the people/vendors. I never ran across an unpleasant...More

Don't feel distressed when the initial contact with the Souk is a bit overwhelming, maybe even stressful (don't allow henna-painters to grab your hand..).. Allow yourself to disappear into the crowds of the Souk and enjoy the scenery.. Of course they want to sell to...More

This was to be a highlight of our visit to Marrakech but turned into a living nightmare. After escaping the clutches of the henna woman in Jemaa el-Fnaa (see separate review) we entered the souks. While expecting to be asked to enter the stalls and...More

Quiet by day, but coming alive at night. Have your teeth pulled, a snake wrapped round your neck and a monkey on your head, making sure to remember your camera. Followed by something to eat from the street stalls.

My wife and I spent a lot of time "window shopping", i.e., looking and not buying. Along the various alleys/paths, there are endless shops with items, as well as scads of foods, spices, and scents. And, of course, residents and vendors asking you to purchase...More

What a feast for the senses! From the huge square, with street vendors, entertainers and horse drawn carriage rides, into the hustle and bustle of the souks. Narrow passages full of fabulous goods, leather wares, spices, dyes, clothing and of course the wonderful Moroccan delicacies....More

So, it really is something to attempt and having done so i'd say unless you have previous experience or serious navigational skills then to enjoy the souk fully it would be best to pay and take a guided tour. You've also really got to want...More

A visit to Morocco would no be complete without bargaining with the local vendors. The souk s are full of wonderful items but you must hold firmly to the price you want to pay. I had a wonderful day shopping.

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!
