So much hassle to buy absolute tat. Cheaply made fake products and vendors that just cause you so much hassle you just want to go home and pay proper money for proper items. Stay away.

A great place to look around, and plenty of character, however the unwanted characters are those on the streets that will not leave you alone. I'd say a female travelling alone would be very intimidated by some of them, where as I was a bit more abrupt and then they left me alone.

Had to be careful to avoid scammers taking you to areas that were of no interest and then demanding a tip.

Visiting here was like being transferred into a different lifetime. It is like a maze and great fun to walk through with all of the shop owners trying to sell their wares. There are also some really interesting wall murals throughout the walkways.

It's a nice place if you have an hour or two to kill but it's nothing special. There are little shops (run by locals or at least they say so) which are highly overpriced and sell nothing but crap. Everything could be found cheaper outside this place. If you, despite everything, want to buy something there you must really haggle... More

I went here for about 2 hours, the medina is quite small however they do have a market. This is more for locals rather then tourists however prepare to haggle. There is a supermarket here and a few nice resturants so worth a nice walk.

This is the place to taste the flavour of local shopping, but be prepared to haggle and always remember to say NO and walk away if you don't want to buy.

Beware the locals lie a lot. I had fun haggling with the locals over a cup of tea, but the local guiding us there actually lied that he is working in our hotel. Overpaying is a certainty not a possibility. Asking prices are as much as a 100 times the actual price, so be sure to offer very low price.
