Maybe go there once but after that you've seen it. It's very touristic and everyone tries to make money from you. Beware of the henna women, they almost force you to do henna (they simply grab your hand even if you say no and tell you it's a present but afterwards they want you to pay and also way to... More

During day it looks just like a huge square where you can get fresh orange juice or avocado juice on your way to souks but come here at night and you will think you are in different place! Every thing comes to life! You will get surround be fantastic smells of food and music, there will be cobras and exotic... More

Went to the market based on previous reviews. However the persons luring you into their "special" place is 1000 times more aggressive than the daily salesman in the Souk. You dont get 1 second of thinkingtime to consider a choise and the reason might be they are all serving the same. Our vendor took the order and placed food on... More

Lots of options for things to buy. Beware of the aggressive women there who will take your hands and paint henna or put jewelry on them before trying to rip you off. Great place for souvenirs and to feel the vibes.

Marrakech is a very love-hate destination. For all the vibrant performances in Jemaa el-Fnaa, the persistent approach of the performers is borderline uncomfortable sometimes. And lots of people trying to trick you into something here, be sure to keep your wallets and valuables close. That being said, I can't imagine a trip to Morocco complete without visiting Jemaa el-Fnaa. But... More

This is a very busy square with lots of people and lots of various sales activities (little Lego-type restaurants that are built by the owners every evening and moves away during the night, henna masters, fresh fruit juice selling spots, comics, etc.). It must see while you are in Marrakech.

It's a space full of music, shouting, haggling, motorbikes whizzing buy, and people hassling you to buy things. If you are ready to have your senses challenged you'll have a great time. Definitely eat at one of the local places in the Square (we had sheep brains) and don't take photos without asking (you will be asked for a fee).... More

Must go place but tricky, be careful with snakes or other animals. Don't take pictures of them, unless you want to pay a good money for them

Having been here, you are constantly asked to go into everyone's shop and check out the goods. However , they refuse to give you the price at the start of the conversation. They tell you right at the end and try and pressurise you to buy the items. I did barter with many of these shop owners but they refused... More
