Night time is the best... amazing atmosphere... just keep bags safe and go in groups, lots to see and enjoy and to eat out... love to haggle with the shoppers.

It's a normal square really. There is a variety of dancers, stalls with food, snake charmers, monkeys and so on. The only problem is they all to take money from you at all costs, that is not good when you just want to take a walk. The vendors use very aggressive sales technique, even if you say you don't want... More

Having wandered around, all we saw was a few banks, some hawkers and men trying to charm snakes or put them around our necks! Not worth the bother

The place is total madness but there is a method to every madness as they say. Be sure to haggle and keep your stuff safe as we were warned of pick pocketeers here although we didn't encounter any. The people standing in front of the restaurants try to hassle you to try theirs. Although it could be annoying when we... More

I was looking forward to the excitement of the main square but I did not like it! We tried to avoid it on the rest of our trip, walking quickly through it when needed. You get hassled by everybody and they don't take no for an answer. There are snake charmers and people with monkeys, which I personally don't like... More

This place is cra-cra. I spent five days in Marrakesh and had to pass through it at least once every day. It will alternately repel you and entice you. Snake charmers, monkeys, street performances, street vendors, touts, water vendors in bright costumes, fresh juice vendors. It is phantasm, fantasy and nightmare. I liked to take up a spot at one...

it is overrated. Yes, you can find some interesting performances - mainly street dance and music - but it is a tourist trap. If you take a picture, you pay; all the street vendors are screaming trying to get you attention, following you trying to sell you goods that are not even the real stuff; all the restaurantes are overpriced...

After 10 years you still get hassled by the traders in souks and Jenna el-Fnaa. So different in Rabat and other places with Medinas, smiles and allow you to shop in peace. The cats are healthier too. Besides that wee criticism Marrakech is beautiful.

Snake charmers in the day, drummers dancers and food stalls in the evening. A chaos of excitement. The souk is off this square so orient yourself when you get lost. Lots of restaurants ATM etc.
