Go in the late afternoon, find a seat in any of the rooftop cafes and just watch the square come alive! You might have to buy a drink or two to get that seat but it is well worth it.
The snake charmers, storytellers and monkey performers will slowly make way for the night market. Try a glass of orange juice from the numerous stalls or get lost in the medina. Mostly touristic stuff and souvenoirs. Be careful who you take photos of as some street performers and stalls might ask for a tip! Unfortunately, i did not stay late enough to try any of the food from the stalls. But there's always next time!
