          Marrakech is a city located in central Morocco, inland, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. It is nicknamed the “red city” or the “ocher city” in reference to the red color of a large part of its buildings and houses. The city was founded in 1071 by Youssef ben Tachfine, at the head of the Berber Empire of the Almoravids. In the past, Morocco was known in the East as Marrakech (still relevant in Iran); the name Morocco comes from the deformation of the Portuguese pronunciation of Marrakech: Marrocos. Marrakech has 928,850 inhabitants according to the 2014 census, spread over an area of ​​230 km2. The population density reaches 350 inhabitants per hectare in the Medina.

          Night time is the best
          The Medina in the day time is hot and really for me just a market but at night it is vibrant, colourful and hectic but true Marrakech. Haggling for a bargain is a national sport in Morocco they love it and so did I.

          Hectic but magical
          We visited here one night as we were staying in a complex nearby. The traffic is hectic but the people, sights are magical. Everyone is so friendly and yes you do need to barter if you want to buy something in the souks. Prepare to get lost in the souks but use google maps or ask someone to guide you back to the main square. We had a drink at a restaurant no alcohol but we were happy to sit and soak up the atmosphere. Take small euro notes with its accepted everywhere and the businesses can only exchange notes change is given in dirhams. The people are friendly the sites outstanding and the traffic hectic Beware the mad moped drivers racing each other in the souks

          Bargaining is tiresome
          This is an experience, and although interesting, we would not do this again. The Medina is a chaotic hot pot of stalls with everything imaginable... spices, tapestries, clothing, shoes, baskets, food and jewellery, and hot! It is well worth walking around for a few hours, however it tiresome when you have to bargain all the time or get scammed. Luckily, googlemaps worked well and so we didn't get lost in the maze.

          The Bazaar is the best
          The place where I always return to make unexpected finds is the great covered Bazaar called the Souk in the middle of the Old Town, Medina. It may seem chaotic at first but the same kind of artefacts - leather slippers and sandals, wool carpets, straw baskets, painted wood, brass lamps are often sold in the same location. When you get lost don't ask the locals, just follow other tourists to find a way out.

          The reason to visit Morocco
          The Aladdin-like old town of Marrakesh is the reason for many to visit Morocco. Criss-crossing the labyrinth of lanes and alleys is an interesting experience. Unparalleled in the world, the medina is still a large, living city with many stalls catering to the local community. Do devote enough time and energy to explore the city and understand the customs and traditions.

          A great surprise
          Travelling independently we had geared ourselves up for some degree of harassment based on many reviews. We walked around for half a day around the old medina/souks and were pleasantly surprised. Everywhere was clean, shopkeepers were invariably good natured and a polite decline was always sufficient. The variety of goods on offer was amazing. For us, the best bits were the various workshops situated off the main shopping streets and these are certainly worth seeking out. Blacksmiths, shoemakers, leather workshops all producing goods for sale. Google Maps worked fine navigating the various areas. In early evening, we had a walk around Jemaa el Fnaa which was enjoyable for fifteen minutes avoiding those vendor mis-treating monkeys and snakes.

          Great Souks inside the Medina's Walls
          The central city (Medina) is an ancient, walled-in city and includes the Souks/shops and much more that is in many of these posts. The intact and maintained city wall is both tall and extensive, thus of interest in its own right as most of Europe took such walls down many decades to centuries ago. The other attractions in the Medina include the mosques, palaces, parks and neighborhoods. The 2023 earthquake damage is interesting to see as well, tho thankfully it largely spared the place other than some specific locales with damage. Mostly, tourists head for the main square (Jemaa el-Fnaa, see other posts) and then the alleys with the souks winding all over the place, especially to the north of the square. Well worth a long visit, the two main problems for tourists in the souks beyond the Jemaa el-Fnaa are: 1) finding what is most desired as the goods, particularly specialized ones, tend to be segregated into regions/neighborhoods, each of which isn't easy to find, and 2) getting lost (maybe thoroughly). If you have no sense of directions (which is about the only way to navigate), we'd quite strongly suggest hiring a tour guide as otherwise, you could get quite thoroughly lost and could eventually or even quickly have considerably less fun than you otherwise should experience! We hired a tour guide, learned a ton, and are very glad we did that even tho we both have good senses of directions :) Know how to negotiate price and if not, look online for helpful hints. We went midday and it was plenty crowded and we saw enough motor scooters ripping past people in narrow alleys, so we'd prefer that as compared to the descriptions of others who went in the evening/nights/weekends., although we understood that the Jemaa el-Fnaa would be more alive in those times. Enjoy!

          Experience Marrakech Magic
          A place that is cultured,challenging and cool. A 1001 fragrances in the air from cinnamon to orange blossom. Donkeys and scoters fly by any alley and passage way in the Medina. Souks full of locals and tourists alike. Marrakech does not have many must see sights but the whole city has to be seen & experienced to be believed. A big step from west to east.

          In a fake plastic world in Europe it’s refreshing to visit the Medina with its positives and vices
          I made two visits to Medina. First time was at 8 AM where the streets were empty and the shops shut. I walked around the narrow alleyways and it’s was wonderful. It gets busier the later you arrive and second time was late afternoon when the place was packed with people and mopeds flying everywhere. The shop vendors were pushy but not aggressive like I experienced in Egypt in the past. The mopeds are used by shops as modern day donkeys for transportation of goods. It’s a working breathing market where locals and tourists walk and shop together. There is nothing to fear and to be honest why come to Marrakech and then complain. Plenty of police around. Yes the shop keepers will try their best to get the best price but who wouldn’t. You need to look out for fast mopeds in a hurry that’s the only concern but it’s surprising how one can adapt and learn to bargain something we as Europeans seem to have lost. Be careful if approached by helpful locals because they will expect money for help or try to take you to a shop of their choice I would not recommend a visit at night as it’s very dark and confusing in the alleyways and it’s easy to lose yourself.

          Well worth immersing yourself in the vibrant atmosphere
          The atmosphere in the medina is second to none. From the vibrancy of the famous plaza, jemaa el fna, to the labrynth of alleyways, just go with the flow. Yes, some of the salesmen are a little overpowering, but you knew that before you entered, right! Maybe take a GCSE in Haggling before you go and just enjoy the experience.

          Majorelle gardens marrakech tips
          You MUST buy tickets on line they give you allocated time every 30 minutes If you buy there... opposite the entrance gate....it will be whats available maybe later in the day or the next day Outside the entrance are time signs 11.00 ...11,30 ,,,, etc You q at your ticket time q about 100 people allowed at each time frame. Its super hot in marrakech and outside gardens no shade so MY BEST TIP arrive 5 minutes after your designated time ( you have a 30 minute time frame for your group) all your group ticket time would have entered... you will walk straight in. Garden stunning... gardeners full time.... walk clockwise around allow 90 minutes super clean.... stunning water features frogs Terrapins wild birds Things i didn't like.... security on every path.... not relaxing as too many security

          Worth visiting
          It was very lively, plenty of street sales everywhere. It took an advantage of it being covered and offering plenty of shade in boiling hot weather. I would love to explore more if it was less hot.

          the best royal city in Morocco " Marrakech"
          We had the most amazing 10-day journey with Deep Morocco Tours. Our guide, Ahmed, was amazing; he made sure every moment was special and offered thoughtful analysis. The schedule was well-balanced, taking us deep into Morocco's rich culture while highlighting the country's top attractions. Every location was amazing, from the peaceful Sahara Desert to the busy medina of Marrakech. The lodging was excellent and provided a taste of Moroccan warmth. The highlight of the trip was the native food, and we had deeper conversations with the people there. Our hopes were surpassed by Deep Morocco Tours, which gave us an experience we will always treasure. For a really authentic Moroccan experience, highly recommended.

        Absolute shocking experience, performers in green dresses before even to look at them or bearly take a photo they already demanding money from you. Good, we had a 10 mad to give away otherwise who knows what will happen to the tourist. I advise avoiding looking at performers or sellers they try to rip you off. Bought also nuts from a nit seller he was very excited to see us around his shop only until we told him that we want to buy nuts for 20 mad he changed his polite manner into rude local. Also, taxis are difficult they dont even appreciate even 20-25 euros. But still met decent people is not all bad.

        If you haven't experienced anywhere like this before then it is a sensory overload and quite an experience. I've travelled extensively but wouldn't bother visiting the Medina again. I didn't even attempt to look in any of the shops but just walking around means that you'll get lost and constantly hassled, often aggressively! Many tourists walk around with headphones on or simply keep looking straight ahead ignoring the touts and 'guides' but it may be worth paying for a professional guide to get the most out of the Medina...

        Lovely place. The atmosphere is really buzzing at night. The locals love it here. Music and food all around. You can't get bored.

        We walked around and enjoyed the music. You will be approached for a tip from the musicians so have some coins with you. Also be careful of pickpockets while enjoying an activity. They thrive in this spots.

        We stopped for coffee and people watching. The coffee price was 10MAD when we were ready to leave the guy said we have to pay 50 as we didn't eat. We refused as that didn't make sense. So be ready to call their BS as they will try it on.

        Overall I recommend the place. Go during the day for shopping and during the night to experience the night life.

        We left almost midnight and the place was full and buzzing.

        Medina is the only place in Marrakesh where you can sense the color of the town. Snakes whispers and monkey trainers at the center ( if you take a photo you have to give something (10 DMA is fine).
        Yes it is crowded with hundreds of Tourists and locals trying to sell their goods. Proceed if you really want to buy souvenirs BUT ALWAYS WITH BARGAINS never accept the offered price, you want regret it (bought a couple of lamps, the original price of 2300 MDA dropped to 450 DMA at the end). The prices over there are negotiable and can find all you imagine.

        The first thing that hits you when you see this place is its sprawling vastness. Set in a very large area with many shops and eateries, it gives you the true essence of Morocco. Shop-owners keep luring tourists, and calling out, even following at times. The nights are crazy! The place is packed, with thousands of people and virtually no space to walk. There is a lot of pushing and touching, high noise level, and one must be beware of pick-pocketers. Horse carriage ride is an added attraction.

        Went from Agadir to Marrakesh and did the walking tour of the old Medina. It was really good to have a tour guide as the Medina is a labyrinth in itself. Also good to get tips as to what to watch out for and what is safe. We got a very good and informative quick history lesson from our wonderful tour guide, Akram. He also guided us to a rooftop restaurant that served traditional Moroccan tagine that was really tasty. On our free time we wanted to visit the Bahia palace but it was unfortunately closed due to some filming that day. But instead had fun in the buzzing market square, bargaining, snake taming and people watching.

        All in all we had a very fun time and learned a lot about the Moroccan people.

        We stayed right in the heart of the Medina of Marrakesh for 2 nights inside one of the Riads that have been converted to Guest houses. The service was good. They fussed about us a lot trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
        The guest house comes with a guide/butler that takes you around where ever you want to go and is totally at your pleasure.
        It was a nice experience.

        Absolutely amazing town so many things to do so many shops and food places.
        The only thing that lets the place down is that every bloody shop keeper wants your custom. and when you say no most of them swear in english and get angry.
        Best advise don't engage them just carry on walking.

        Pesky dangerous motorcycles dominate narrow walkways of Morocco’s medinas. As a motorbike rider I commend access allowed to just about anywhere to do anything in Morocco’s pedestrian paths but!!!!!the potential for a horrific collision between speeding machines and pedestrians is ever present. A friend suffered a near fatal head injury from being struck down last year by a motorbike in s crowded Bangkok street. Not sure if Pedestrians in Morocco have had similar experiences but time will tell. Please be sensible and impose some limits on access through zones/allowable periods for deliveries and prioritise pedestrians!!!! Death and injury in such pleasant surroundings is not worth it

        The Medina is large with lots of small, narrow off shoots.
        There are good bargains to be had but you have to haggle for everything. There are different areas - metal, leather, textiles etc. If you can take a long slow walk around first to get your bearings and see the different things on offer.
        There’s also some good architecture to be seen as it’s nearly 1000 years old and it’s got plenty of history.
