This Medina or town is of average size much smaller than the one in Fez but larger than Casablanca's. Remember this is not going to be like your home town market, this is a very different culture, so explore and understand. It is smelly, dirty, has beggar's, lots of animals and shops. We walked from our hotel past the Mosque to the open market and then strolled through the side streets. Did some shopping, bought some lamps and shoes for decoration in our home. Had a good afternoon exploring then went back to our hotel.

Be ready for hassle! Very bustling (as expected) but you will be approach very frequently by children, men & women asking for money; trying to sell something, or trying to tempt you. Be aware of pick-pockets!

I went to Marrakesh after Fez, and I must to say that I did get a little bit scared of the medina. Much bigger, tourist and chaotic than Fez. They allow the entrance of motorbike and one must be careful not to get hit. But it is very characteristic and I think that represents very well the spirit of the city with colors, smells and flavors from Morroco.

Everthing that you want to see in an old town. Great restaurants all around the center square. Great local merchandise.

The medina is very charming. Djema el fna is COMPLETELY different when the sun is down.

By day, snake charmers and women with henna will chase you down! There are two souks as well to buy souveniers and food. Many restaurants line the plaza. You must try the fresh juices - go to cart #23! You won't regret it, you'll thank me.

By night, things change. Almost
out of nowhere it seems, the square transforms with a bunch of pop up restaurants serving traditional morrocan food. Music is being played, dancers putting on a show. Walk through at different hours to see what I'm talking about!
