How to get lost in town,.....

A very nice, but busy place. So much to see, all sorts of stuff being sold from leather to tea set,.....Very noisy, but very enjoyable.

Crowed, very busy, the shop holders are not too pushy, donkeys and motorbikes. Be aware for the young "guides" at each corner of the souk, don't trust them and tell them immediately and firmly that you don't need their help, don't let them guide you or follow you.

hassle hot and magical - fakes, artisan, tea - great feeling . stall holders could cool it a bit with the shouting but once you adapt its not a prob, a lot of fake football shirts and bags - better ones in the souk than on the square - bring water as its hot

I don't think there is anywhere in the world like the souks of Marrakech. Other places try but this place is special and you known you are in Marrakech. The hustle and bustle of market life but with the heat and atmosphere this place is unique.

Amazing place to do a spot of shopping and really is the heart of Marrakech. Make sure you haggle well if looking to buy something as you will usually be able to half the price that many merchants initially look for.

You can spend a couple of days solid, just perusing the stalls. So much to see and buy. Leather goods all over the place but if you can make it to Essouirra (not sure if thats to correct spelling) much better prices and quality of leather...but its about 3hrs by car!

A place full of winding alleys with mopeds sppeding past and donkeys laden with all sorts of things trundling along. This place is fast paced and fun! The people are very friendly and love to have a joke with you. They can be very pushy as all merchants are, they are just trying to earn a living but be polite... More

We shopped on a number of days within the souk and it was an interesting experience! There are many stores with thousands of items available. You will need to haggle the price and don't accept the first offer made. Make sure you allow plenty of time to explore the souk and be aware it is very easy to get lost... More

Wander and prepare to get lost .. if you want to make serious purchases I'd recommend getting a local guide. Go to the Artisan centre beforehand to get an idea of reasonable prices when haggling then go for it!

The souk of Marrakech can be a cool, calm retreat from the rest of the Medina whilst being a fascinating and diverse market if you handle yourself well. Go in willing to barter (the starting price is always 5 to 10 times what the merchant will accept) and don't express an interest in something unless you fully intend to buy... More
