“Good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Couldnt have asked for more... Atmosphere, funny characters... Basically the real Marrakech... The evening is when all the main stalls open up and the lighting and people create a great vibe.

“Fabulous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

What better place to discover Moroccan handcrafts than the wonderful Marrakech souks? The gigantic Jemaa el-Fnaa souk is at the center of the medina. In the day the souk is active with storytellers, street performers and fruit vendors, but at night the souk transforms into a huge cooked-food market, as hundreds of vendors set up tables and tents.

great place to see people and stroll around the stalls. The locals are very helpful, but can be very pushy when they want you to visit their stall...

“A-maze-ing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Such a confusing myriad of alleyways with so many shops selling the same sort of goods. Seen one souk/medina and you have seen them all. Great vibe and main square is abuzz with activity.

“Sweet feeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We so loved the air in the souks. How big it was enable us to get lost, but local people here was so kind, simply and friendly. However, be careful with someone who try to take you to the tanneries.
