We arrived late at night in the Medina where there are hundreds of people rushing about. We were met from the resort hoppa and escorted to the Riad down dimly lit dirty alleys where again there are young men on corners.
On arrival we were given water and shown to our room. ( Jad) The room was very nice but had no space to hang clothes.
On our second day we ventured out of the Riad and were approached a number of times to be shown to the square el fina or shops. These people expect to be paid so beware.
There are not at lot of sight seeing locations to fill a full week if you like to walk.
We visited the square a number of times but you pay double of whatever price is on the menus of the many food stalls. Also expect to be asked for money if you video/photograph anyone in the square. They will pursue you for payment.
Marrakech medina doesn't appear to have changed much in hundreds of years from people on horse back. The difference now is that everyone rides road on mopeds which drive any where which includes Souks, parks and pavements. You are expected to get out of there way
Marrakech is an experience but not one I would repeat or recommend.
