I love the place, It is vibrant, lots of stuff to see. Tourists and locals mix pleasantly. Great orange juice for a small price. Be careful of the women who offer to do henna. Especially the ones that offer a quicky, because that might cause you a rash. Ask your local hotel where to find a serious woman who uses... More

You either love this place or hate this place. There is no in between. We stayed 4 days in Marrakesh and visited Jemaa el Fanaa every evening and a couple of times during day. I must say that day and night experience are completely different and both should be experienced. In day this place is magical with snake charmers, monkeys,... More

The Jemaa el Fnaa is a must visit - however you must have your wits about you - you are constantly hassled to have henna, play with snakes, monkeys etc and you will definately get ripped off if you engage with them - you must stay firm and refuse to pay what they ask - we ended up paying 300...

Big open square in the medina, that has plenty going on day and night. Unfortunately, not of the best quality. It's good for experience, but I wish the people coming out to perform would have better quality acts. Seems the dancers or the singers are just average, normal people, not artists. Or maybe that is the charm of this square.... More

My wife really wanted to visit this place so I went in with an open mind and was hoping to be proven wrong that it cant be that bad. After reading some of the reviews on this I was still a little bit wary of going and a little worried as well not knowing what to expect, see and deal... More
