Fantastic place, very big, lots of haggling, followed by more haggling. Watch out for the beggars, but do enjoy great leather products at awesome prices.. whatever price they first quote u, pay less than half.. quite a few items we were quoted 500dhms and ended up paying 80dhms.. so Haggle haggle and haggle..

Unique feeling to be in a market in an Arabic country, like this. You cannot miss it as it is in the middle of old Marrakech. Great products (locally made clothing, shoes, ceramic items, foods, etc.). Little shops with a bit pushy owners, however, if you don't want to buy anything from them, it is OK too.

Buy everything Moroccan that you're looking for in the souks. Just be ready to be aggressively sold products and don't think that the vendors want to genuinely be your friends. Negotiate great deals and go home with treasures.

Overall, this souk was an amazing experience for us. Despite the fact that my wife did have her phone stolen. Everything was amazing. Sensory overload. So many things and so much to do! Exciting discovery around every corner. And there were a lot of corners! What made the trip extra fantastic for us, as well was that while we were... More

Haggle haggle haggle! The people were friendly although some of them very pushy. Start off at 80% of the asking price and never pay more then half, usually it was just under half but some agreed at the first offer, just tell them that's your top price! As you get deeper into the souks the motorbikes drive you mad as... More

Haggle haggle haggle, whatever price they give you offer them 80% less, if you stick to this and only go up a little bit you should be ok. As you deeper into the souks you get all the motorbikes whizzing past and it gets very tiring dodging them. Try not to ask anyone for directions, the main square does have... More

Sounds like the name of a con artist film from the 80's right? May as well be. For me this is a must visit if you are a tourist as it signifies their culture through the traders brazeness and their fine artisitic products. Amongst the many market stalls you will find plentiful merchant goods ranging from: clay pots and pans,... More

Great place to look at local artsant ans other articles' for the house. Do pharmacies claim to seller pure Argan oil. Research first what the real thing. Great to have a guide so one does not get lost in the market.

It was a complete and utter maze, yet was pretty enchanting, so many beautiful smells and colours. Plenty of eager shop keeps, who will try trick you and offer you ridiculous prices; however quickly back down. Noone bothered us or followed us, they were often extremely complementary to get a sale, with a hundred stalls for every type of item,... More

Remembering our 5 days in Marrakesh, and every single of them walk here, I just can tell that no words will describe such an amazing and crazy place, is like being in a movie from years ago, it will blow your mind away, the people, the smells, the vendors, the henna ladies, the monkeys, donkeys, spices, clothes, fresh bread, people...
