This is an amazing and fascinating place. Hundreds of shops selling absolutely all sorts of goods. This is not tricked up for tourists as it is the place where all the locals purchase everything. The sights, sounds and smells of the spices form a memorable experience.

Bussleing, noisy, amazing, crazy, sometimes smelly place!! It is a must. Could be a little over bearing. Whilst walking around you WILL get lost. In some points it reminded me of how the Victorian streets of London may have been. When you immerse yourself and allow your brain to catch up it almost feels a bit biblical! As you go... More

If you are in Marrakech (or any other North African city) you must visit the souk. Hundreds of shops selling everything you can imagine. Be ready for the amazing mix of colours and smells, but be also ready for some very upsetting sellers.

This place is amazing...the sights, sounds, and smells are incredible. The souks wind throughout the area north of Jemma el Fna, and it is very easy to get turned around and lost. Be sure to take something with GPS, which makes it fairly easy to navigate and find your way out. Spice markets, pashmere, street food, restaurants, local wares...fun to... More

Some incredible shopping to be had in the Souks. Brush up on your bargaining skills though with small purchases before buying anything expensive! Offer a third of what they are asking and maybe settle at half. Go to the Artisanal first as this is a government run 'mall' where prices are set so you can see what you can expect... More
