It is an experience but it becomes annoying very quickly! The vendors, the monkey handlers, the henna artist, the snake charmers are too pushy and overbearing! Just looking is not and option, they bug you to death! Beware of the guys who want to show you around! They are not being "nice" they will ask for money in the end!

This is where all shopping happens.
Prepare yourself to bargain and bargain for everything. The 1st prices are always 4 to 5 more than you pay, so bargain!

Lots of sights and sounds, but we found the place a bit of a hassle during the day and sketchy at night unless you are in very touristy areas. After you've seen the following stores; local dress and shirt shops, shoe (slipper shops), bag shops, wood shop, lamp shops, pottery shops, metal work shops, spice shops, olive shops, rip off pharmacies selling watered down products, carpet shops, a few fake clothing/football shirt shops then I'd suggest getting a taxi back to your hotel and thinking if your trip to Marrakech was really worth all that money. Save some of the trip and visit Jardin Marjorelle.

Although the constant hassle can get you down, this is an experience not to be missed. Keep your wits about you and you will soon learn to be firm but friendly with the shopkeepers.
