I did not enjoy walking in the medina in the evening. I wanted to go shopping but the hassling was too much.

At the first look, it may seem to be 'magical', intriguing... you feel like it's a different world. But only 30 mins later you realise this is not quite friendly world. I felt greatly intimidated in medina. Feels like everybody is watching your every step....More

The locals seem friendly at first when they help to direct you but then they demand money from you. We were forced to pay 200 dirham (about £20) to one of the locals as he showed us somewhere we didn’t even want to go (some...More

Must visit place in the evening or late night. So much happening, pick up a glass of orange juice and keep walking. Music, magic, live performance, food and people of all around the world... everything is there. Be there, get immersed and be amazed

We walked around the city with our guide enjoying the early morning empty streets and less of the chaos that normally is happening after midday. Lots of stores, vendors, beautiful monuments and old buildings, motorbikes that go faster than you can imagine while you are...More

The market at night definitely comes alive with people and lights. Mist of the stalls were either selling knockoffs or cheap made in China crap. The food stall vendors are very pushy but the worst are the henna ladies who tell you they like you...More

The Medina was located a couple of blocks from my Riad and it was more comfortable for me to shop in. They had a lot of nice variety and not the mazes of the Square. Prices were good and I did a lot of shopping...More

I visit Marrakech often and always find something new to see. Best seen at night when the storytellers and musicians are out in force and the air is filled with the smell of cooking from the food stalls. Don't be put off eating from the...More

The crowds were lovely and full of energy. Shop keepers were enthusiastic but polite. Loved seeing the snakes and monkeys but glad no one tried to put one on me :P Really happy with the items I purchased.

I would go to the new part of the city outside Medina, the restaurants there are nicer and much cleaner. Happy New Year !

I cannot recommend a hotel close to the Medina area, the best (aka most quiet and civilised) hotels are around Hivernage. It is only a 10' taxi ride and it costs 50 dirham from Koutoubia. Please keep in mind that every... More
