Be ready for every passer by to ask you to by something, thats there culture but all you have to do is say no with a hand gesture and they will understand. It can get on your nerves but their harmless. What ever the price is make sure you bid down. If there really getting on your nerves offer them... More

The Souk, oh the Souk, where does it start where does it end. They say 400 you say 40, you agree at 80, an experience not to be missed. Get lost in it, dont be afraid to say no, and in the end pay a person 40d to find your way back to the sq :)

Brillant experience! Don't worry about where you are, just lose yourself and enjoy the life of souks. Prepare yourself to enter an ocean of colours and textures, to meet amazing people and experience the kindness of Berber and Arab people, to bargain on everything (your initial offer usually must be ⅓ of the price asked by the merchant), and to...

Covered streets so that you don't feel the heat, clean markets and a very positive attitude of all the shopkeepers made this a really great experience I wasn't expecting much but it really grew on me I would suggest letting your feet find their wanderlust and spending a day "being with the place" - it will give you memories for...

Wow, so stimulating of all the senses--sight with colors and textures, sounds, and smells. Really seems like a movie set. Try not to rush. Take it in one day and come back to buy if you can. So so many things you will want later--slippers, jellaba, pottery, glasses and spices. If you can handle it, check out the chickens....

Some of the stuff you buy there it's in really good price- very cheap. But as a tourist from abroad you will be paying much more then Moroccan tourists. you will be in a center of attention as you have money to spend. they will make you buy stuff you don't really need, telling you its a good price. you...

The souks of Marrakech are interesting to see, but definitely go with a guide. If you go solo, people will constantly harass you to get you to go into their shops, and will try to get you lost by telling you streets are closed so you can't find your way, and they will offer to get you un-lost for a...
