I visited Marrocco for the first time and after the accomodation in Riad we went to explore the territory. We were advised to go into the Souk.....and....at the beggining as was "shocked" of all the people that were trying to sell you something...anything. its important to bargain...that is the culture....go down from high price to less than a half ;)...

To be honest unless you're looking for something in particular the souk is just a confusing place of junk that is even made in china. The onslaught of people trying to sell junk is a little annoying, especially the fact that your gonna have to bargin for even the smaller item. But hey that is me, you may be a... More

The souks are all very nice and there is lots of stuff to buy, but the problem there is the same stuff everywhere you go. You can't just wonder through enjoying Morocco, you will he hounded by every shop owner and there are many shops. If you try and stop they will leap on you and talk you in to... More

The city wall is 19km around its perimeter. Entrance gates lead you inside from the busy wide streets into a maze of small alleyways and roads and of course into the heart of the Souks. Take a wrong turn down an alleyway and you may happen upon an oasis of calm in a rooftop riad or restaurant. Suggest saving a... More

This is an experience which most people are daunted by. You won't get lost. There is always someone to direct you or guide you but you need to keep handy some MD to pay. Everything seems to be available in these twisty alley ways, full of shops and work places. You probably will be shocked to see young children working... More

We have just returned from Marrakech having stayed in a wonderful Riad just minutes walk from the Souk. On arrival I was a little apprehensive on the border of nervous. The hustle, bustle, locals and traffic, which incidentally seems to have, right of way whichever direction the are travelling. Many an occasion I could have ended up on the handle... More

We went into the souks on many occasions, and almost without exception, got totally lost! Even with a map, you will not end up where you expect and you will never be able to find your way back the way you came, so, just go with the flow and relax, as long as you have plenty of time on your...

Dont be afraid to wander into the Souks. These are people who are making a living so they will try to sell you something and if you are interested let the games begin. If you are not smile and say no merci and move on. The deeper you get into the Souks the more interesting you will find it. The... More

Ok. So we all know that when in Rome....... The souks are a maze of narrow streets with stalls packed on either side and the occasional on the floor in the middle of the street trader. Everyone wants a sale and they try sooooo hard to get it. You will be hassled and invited inside to look for free. Be... More
