Lots of outdoor markets. We hired a cab driver for the day that gave us a city tour and dropped us off at the highlights of the city. It was well worth it

It's not as great as some of the medinas in Armenia, Uzbekistan, Takijistan but it's interesting. Very safe. Nobody bothered me even though I carry two huge pro Canon cameras with lenses. Friendly and fun

Extremely dirty with open urinals, stinking smell all over the place. I stayed in the city for around 3 months near the beach. Sometimes did visit the city, but found this area a big No No!

Inside the old walls the tiny laneways are cluttered with stalls mostly offering the sort of merchandise you can get anywhere. All a bit ordinary really but don't miss the food stalls and fruit market. We purchased delicious ripe plums, peaches and apples. One highlight was tasting the fruit of the prickly pear. After the barbs are peeled away you... More

I have visited a couple of souks now and i am over the whole experience but glad i did. It is just the haggling and pushy salesmen. There was nothing really different about this trip though i did spy some nice clothes marked!!! with reasonable prices. It was not too busy when i was there i was glad for that.... More

This medina offers a lot of factory produced things made by big brands. It is not comparable to the other medinas in morocco, but nonetheless worth a little walk and looking around.

The most impressive thing about this bustling eclectic community of friendly people and shops is the role that the children play in the society. As young as four, they were working alongside their parents in the shops, doing small chores and learning artistic talents like painting pottery, or wrapping the pieces for the buyers. I was told that they work... More

I went to Marrakech first so this medina cannot compare. Not as many products that tourists would be interested in but great people watching and you can see interesting buildings in surrounding area. New medina is better for souvenirs.

A nice walk through the streets of the Medina neighborhood. There are a lot of places that have lost their splendor, but they still have some remnants of the past.
