Souk During Ramadan

What differences have you noticed between how sellers and performers behave during Ramadan and outside of Ramadan regarding harassing you for sales, insisting that you pay for photos and video etc.

Also, what are your suggestions on how to be firm when paying for photos and videos?

agree to price first?

take the picture and then pay, and if they insist and yell and scream and intimidate, walk away?

Thanks

Hi,

Ramadan makes no difference whatsoever to the souks and performers in Marrakech. Everyone is just still trying to make a living from the easiest resource, tourists.

One man's hassle is another's amusing banter so don't come with preconceived ideas about being harassed please.

There is loads of previously posted advice about photography etiquette so have a rummage in the search box and you'll find good ideas and information about what to pay etc.
