You can’t visit Marrakech and not go to the souks. Shopping can be a little strenuous, but looking is fabulous. Difficult to navigate, so we didn’t follow the many side alleys.

You don't need a "guide". Use the GPS in your phone to find your way in and out of the souks. A map and compass will also work. The colors, noise, and smells can be a little bit overwhelming; having a quiet Riad to retreat...More

One of the main and popular attractions in Marrakech. There are lot of interesting things to see and to buy. Of course there is a lot of hassle to get you to part from your well earn cash. Be polite but firm with the vendors....More

The scale of the Souk is huge and not for the fainthearted. Traffic is busy within the souk with motobikes, skooters and people all moving in every direction. Deliveries on top of this by trailers and small trucks makes movement around difficult. Keep your wits...More

This is a rabbit warren of shops. The sellers are friendly and not too pushy. There are so many things you can buy smell and see that after a while you can get information overload. It is surprising how much is stuffed into this space....More

we had hoped to browse and maybe spend some money in the souks, but it became a nightmare of noisy motor bikes, most of which were not delivering or seemed to have any purpose in the souk except to show off to their mates.

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
