“Must see.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2014 NEW

A visit to Marrakesh in not complete without a hassle in the souks. You can easily get lost in this maze of shops. One tip; never pay the price they offer (even the second of third time!)

“Bargains everywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2014 NEW

The mrs was in seventh heaven, and we must have strolled the narrow windy cobbled streets no less than three times a day!
There are all sorts of things on sale and haggling is a very enjoyable part of the experience. All the stall owners were very friendly and welcoming, though not pushy at all (like you usually get in such places...).

“not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014 NEW

You will feel like you are on a movie set! This souk is unbelievable with snake charmers, monkeys and people selling all kinds of food. The best time to visit is at 6 pm, before it gets too crazy. Beware of pick-pockets and everyone wanting money for a picture. We were told by our guide that most of the "Moroccan" things for sale at the souk are actually made in China.

“Not to be missed; but buying elsewhere is easier!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2014 NEW

The souk in Marrakech is an essential part of the city's experience and it's well worth exploring in some depth, because the range of items on sale is vast. Some of the items on sale, such as traditional fire bellows, are made in front of you. On the whole, there wasn't too much of the hassle that can be a feature of such markets, but if you feel uncomfortable with haggling, a few stalls do advertise fixed prices. You might also try the government-managed artisan market just a little way north of Jemmah El Fn, on the boulevard leading to the new town. There, everything is fixed-price and the traders are friendly and helpful but are happy to leave you to browse. We bought all our things there.
