You've read the reviews, so you've got the general idea - there are lots of people here who would like a bit of your tourist cash. My recommendation is to go in with the intention of enjoying yourself! We didn't eat at any of the...More

I've been several times to Marrakech and I love to visit the jama fna place. I can say some tips taken from my vast experience in there: don't worry about traffic, they will never hit you (unless you do something stupid and stand on their...More

Just don’t go. You can’t win. Afterwards you’ll either hate the food stall people, or yourself, or most likely both.

Worth a visit and also, you just cannot skip it while walking in the medina, but I don't recommend spending time here. Little monkeys in chains, tamed snakes, aggressive and harassing people trying to get you sit and eat at their places. Bad and unreliable...More

A must for anyone staying in Marrakech, you need to see this square during the day and night, as it changes immensely. During the day it is full of vendors, snake charmers and Monkey Men. At night, the central part becomes a street food area...More

Surely it is a tourist place, but still full of charm. Eating outdoors in one of the many kiosks gives you the opportunity to make new friends and try local specialties at low prices.

hi there, it varies, some of the shops in the market area close around midnight but many of the shops are open until 3-4am, so you will be fine and they are open from around 6:30-7am - hope that helps

Best time is on an evening as all the pop up food places have been assembled. During Ramadan is not the best idea (due to end early June), as not as much going on. Ladies don’t need to be covered, but you may feel more... More
