We went down to the Souk during our recent stay in Marrakech. It was interesting and busy place, but be very careful if you go there as everyone is a sales person of something and they don't take no for an answer. We ended up in a shop by accident as one of the workers said he recognised us from... More

Souks are on UN list over preservation It's have its good and authentic things , but it's also caos , shouting and the same goods - and they are pretty aggressive if you are going with two blond daughters It's off course a must if being in marrakech but nice ? Not really And things are in general not cheap

Before I took off to Marrakech I've been told to keep my bag half empty now i know why! We bought shoes, bags (5!!!), Fabrics, lights, nuts, spices, camels (just a small one) and it was just at the fraction of the UK price. Just make sure you don't agree on the very first price and be ready to wake... More

Miles and miles of alley ways full of things to buy. From a sheeps head to a rug. Walking along theses crammed streets there are scooters,bikes, horses and carts its only to be seen to be believed. You can buy everything from training shoes to a sheeps head to a rug.

The Marrakech souk is a must do for anybody who wants to experience what a medieval city must have been like. It is fascinating, exotic, lively but it is also dirty, exhausting and intimidating. Morocco is a beautiful country with a rich history but can you handle the people ? In the medina you should expect no honesty from the... More

Fantastic place, very big, lots of haggling, followed by more haggling. Watch out for the beggars, but do enjoy great leather products at awesome prices.. whatever price they first quote u, pay less than half.. quite a few items we were quoted 500dhms and ended up paying 80dhms.. so Haggle haggle and haggle..

Unique feeling to be in a market in an Arabic country, like this. You cannot miss it as it is in the middle of old Marrakech. Great products (locally made clothing, shoes, ceramic items, foods, etc.). Little shops with a bit pushy owners, however, if you don't want to buy anything from them, it is OK too.

Buy everything Moroccan that you're looking for in the souks. Just be ready to be aggressively sold products and don't think that the vendors want to genuinely be your friends. Negotiate great deals and go home with treasures.
