    Crowded in the evening, a touristic place of Marrakech w affordable outdoor dining places w sitting areas, shops, dancers and snake charmers. Be prepared for the hassle.

    The foodmarket is kinda ok - stand 14 and 25 are good. Go where the 'locals' go.

    You can find anything here - from fresh orange juice to sheep. Very noisy but amazing out-of-this-world experience.

    Crazy and vibrating both day and night. Didn't like the snake and monkey keepers and that people were almost forcing a menu or something down your throat. Way too pushy. Orange juice was amazing.

    The main square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). Tons of fun things to see. Stay away from the henna ladies, snake charmers, and monkeys. Haggling is a game; enjoy it!

    Very interesting place just to walk around. Beware of the strangers guiding you, walk the other way. Highly recommend eating the egg bread (with young guys making it) 8 MAD and fresh juice stalls.

    Cool place to just walk around, day or night. It can get really crowded though and you will be hassled for tips frequently. But you have to come at least once and walk around.

    The charmers expect money for pictures taken. Trying the foods does come with stomach warning sometimes. Amazing place but feels like a place you should be careful.

    Don't eat at no 15. It's far more expensive than they tell you for average food. The place opposite where all the Moroccans eat is much better.
  • Suneel R.

    As everyone has said, keep away from snake charmers luring you. One can admire while walking. The OJ that is spoken so much about it only helps if you know French. Bargain always before you buy!!

    Stall #31: good sausages, tomato sauce questionable (for hygiene). The problem comes with the bill: triple check the prices coz they'll always try to charge you a lot more... 30% more in my case.
