"Wandering through the souks" Local Products Tip by mrotsmit
Local Products, Marrakesh: 29 reviews and 41 photos
The thing about shopping is... I mean; when you're a guy - it sucks. That being said, some of the best places to be when travelling are the markets and shopping areas and the Souks are the best example of that. Leading out from the northern edge of the Jemma El Fna is a maze of shop-filled alleyways loaded with carpets and lamps and slippers and candy and scarves and hats and, and, and... Go ahead, plunge in and get lost, eventually you'll come upon the places where they actually make these things. Some have spoken of a place where the air smells horribly and large vats of urine dot the landscape, but we didn't quite make it to the tanneries.
You might think you'll get lost forever but, since you are in a walled old-city, just don't go outside the walls dummy (we did that, oops).
What to buy: Live chickens
Coconut candy that gives you a stomache ache
Strange little mysterious vials of ???
What to pay: Less than they ask for but more than it's worth.
