This is a very strange city with so many donkeys, bikes and motorbikes trying to access very narrow streets that Jemaa El Fna is a welcome retreat. To just have so much space as it is a very large square. There are plenty of places to stop for food and drinks, especially those selling fresh orange, which is very cool and refreshing and costs only about 30p.

Well what can you say about this place. It's certainly an overload on your senses from the sounds of the snake charmer to the smells of the food being cooked at night. Start taking photos of the snakes, the monkeys or anyone and expect to be shown a hat to put money in. In the food market at night expect to get hassled by every stall plying for your money. A bit daunting first time but we had some good banter and a lot of laughs too and a very decent lamb tagine, cous cous and coke that cost around £6.50 for 2 people!

This is the place to see in Marrakech, it will be an explosion on several of your sense, sight, smell, taste, hearing. Wear comfortable shoes as there is plenty of walking around the souks and ensure you have a hat and water if visiting in the day as can get very hot.

Orange juice is plentiful and a must try along with the food that is sold by a number of vendors both in the square and just on the outside the square.

The souk in itself is an experience and easy to lose your way. If buying spices such as saffron ensure you do not buy it in powder form and ensure it is strands. Some vendors may try and pass saffron of as another spice. Remember to barter in the souks and walking away often helps lower the price even further.

You must visit here if you are in Marrakech. Come in the evening and eat at one of the market food stalls we ate snails on one night and then the night after had a selection of what was on offer, very cheap (soup was approx €0.50) try the sheeps head, it will surprise you how tasty it is!! Stay away from the henna ladies unless u do want a tattoo and be aware of the monkeys on leads, they will try and sit one on your shoulder but if you keep your wits about you then you will have an amazing time soaking in the atmosphere
