Interesting part of the souks

If you enter the souks from the north end (just past Rue de Mouassine) and follow round to the right you will find the dyers souks. Lots of brightly coloured scarves and wool... read more

Be careful with false guides who are actually staff who work within the Dyers District. They will show you to the area, as well as the general process involved in dying, but later ask for a fee. I was involved in one such incident where the guide's friends said I should tip my guide for his efforts to bring us... More

This isnt a long stop but is definitely worth the short exploration. Its a thousand year old tradition that really gives some perspective to life in marrakech. Bring your camera.

We walked through the medina and souk to reach the dyers district. Unfortunately we kept being harassed by a young boy who wanted to take us there (for a payment), when it's an easy place to find. Quiet area, visited by a small number of tourists. Not anything like the scale of the one in Fes.
