This is so different from anything else in Morocco, but it is a joy to be there. The hustle and bustle, the crowds, the food stalls, the marketplace, the lights, et al. Go there in the day (or maybe early evening), stroll in the marketplace...More

Don't let the henna women anywhere near your hands. I made this mistake 20 minutes into our trip when I went to the ATM and ended up with a poorly done and very expensive henna after a woman grabbed my hand. Hustlers aside, the square...More

This place is interesting. It is a hustle and bustling place in the evening with vendors selling their food and wares. There are snake charmers and men with monkeys and entertainers everywhere. You will get hustled! There is no way of avoiding it. Just shake...More

This is the most over hyped rip of places I have been. Most of the merchants here are looking for any opportunity to rip tourists off with various scams and tricks. Most of the goods on offer are cheap knock offs. For example Argon Oil...More

It has quite a nice vibe in the evening, when the air is smokey with all the cooking and musicians are playing, but there are so many beggars and people hassling you to buy their wares, it really just gets a bit tiring. Daytime it...More

Couldn't wait to get away from here. We went at night (around 7pm) and found the market stall holders at the main square were overly pushy and forceful, making us feel quite uncomfortable. We didn't really get a chance to get a good look in...More
