If you like to be constantly nagged to buy things you already have or don't want then this is the place. It was mass confusion that I had to deal with on a daily basis as my riad was on the other end of the souk. It's a huge maze of shops selling lots of typical souvenirs, poor quality designer... More

Disliked felt uncomfortable, a little clostaphobic and it was difficult to find an exit. Lots of beggars too. Must stick together.

Likes: general atmosphere. Dislikes: constant hassle. If you love haggling this is for you but be wary and stick to your guns. Always think to yourself, "would I pay this much for this thing at home?" Don't be afraid to walk away from a shop and while many of the shopkeepers are good humoured there are quite a few who...

Be prepared for stall holders trying to entice you into their shops. Great leather, brass and textiles to be bought, but be prepared for hard bargaining. Usually good spirited but not advisable make fun of the traders.

This place is built to get lost in. The merchandise is attractive and probably well priced. be careful if you get lost. Consult your map and failing that ask for directions from a stall holder, not a wandering guide who will deliberately send you the opposite way, follow you and charge you a price to 'take you there' Haggle.

The souks are a good place to wonder around to get some bits for people back home and there are some bargains to be had (you normally want to be getting stuff for about a third of the starting price if you can). The only problem is after a while all the alleyways seem to be the same, selling the... More

Not for the faint hearted, the souk in Marrakech will give you a valuable insight into Moroccan culture, but you have to be able to ignore traders who will do their best to sell you their wares. The best thing is to just walk on. If you want to stop and browse there are always those stall holders who have... More
