"The Souk" Souks Tip by mvtouring

Souks, Marrakesh: 54 reviews and 125 photos


Marrakesh's souk is a rabbit hole of narrow streets that spread out from Jemaa-al-Fnaa Square. Walking into the area, just dive into one of the tiny streets and get yourself lost. You will be harassed by shop owners to buy souvenirs, which are everywhere. If you don't want them, just keep walking and look at all the other fascinating stuff crammed into the tiny lanes.

You will also probably get approached by young men who want to be your "guide" through the souk. Resist.

Address: Jemaa el Fna, Marrakech, Morocco
