“Jemma el Fna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The main square in the centre of Marrakech is a fabulous experience, it is a genuine eye opener, from snake charmers to local artists and everything in between.
Best visited at night on Friday or Saturday for the best experience, amazing.

“good in small doses”

be prepared for the hard sell...kids with ballons, monkeys, snakes, acrobats. It's chaos but good fun.

“full of everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

First, take some pictures with the local water sellers and with the singers gnaou. than, buy the delicious fresh orange juice and give a walk around. after you will be tired of so many beggers and seeing so many...everything, eat some cactus fruit, than sit down at the terraces-roof cafes and enjoy the best tea in the world-Marrakech Tea.
