The souk is always a diferent experience. You need to be very patient to listen to all the sellersand to negotiate with them. Calm down. Yet, some sellers are nice.

Hundreds of souks, ranging from beautiful colourful leather goods, scarves and pottery to even colourful spices stacked in pyramid shapes. The atmosphere is brilliant, need good bartering skills.

The souks are amazing but be careful as you will get lost its like a maze! There is so much to see from metal working to spices and the store owners so give you too much hassle. Definitely a must see in marrakech.

Once you have got your bearings, it is pleasant to walk around. As always you will need to haggle, we found this great at first but getting more tedious as the day wears on. Being honest we found it easier and cheaper to go to the Jewish quarter where the products are better quality, better laid out and you can... More

Rough, rude, dishonest traders. It takes the fun out of the experience. Also the Souks at night is not pleasant, my husband stopped a pick pocketer from going into my bag. Buy your stuff from a supermarket it's less hassle!
