When sun goes down, all go in direction of main square, to enjoy local food and festive atmosphere. Fresh sueezed ornage juice, just for 40 eurocents. Nice seafood at stall 97.

We visited jemaa-el-fnaa with a tour guide prior to going as a couple alone. That day we was taken inside the market of Marrakesh and it was like a whole other world! I would highly recommend it. I managed to get a henna tattoo done by a local stall and it was ever so nice and traditional let alone cheap.... More

So much fun to wander around here! Endless market! Be careful to not get scammed and watch out for pick pockets. Feel free to bargain with the shop owners! :) It's half the fun! If someone tries to help you find the market. Just know if you accept their help they will expect to be paid. If you need or... More

You have to visit during the day and go round the medina with the small alley ways and shops and see the artisan shops and barter the day away. Then go back of an evening to see the sight sounds and smells of the real Morroco spices entertains and street food but hold on tight to your valuables or you... More

As one can expect, the snake charmers were vèry pushy on the square. I don't like this at all, my wife even less. They threw a snake on her shoulders, and demanded 200 dirham. If you don't like this hassle, staff away from the square, or walk around it.

This market place was the centre of Marrakech, it was so lively and has loads of traditional Morrocan shops

Jemaa el-Fnaa is something you should experience. It is chaotic but still fun. I do feel sorry how they treat animals though, and that lowers my rating significantly! Don't take pictures with the monkeys! Don't support animal cruelty! I do recommend drinking freshly squeezed orange juice there. It costs 4dh. And ask them to not add sugar. Lastly, I recommend...

Beautiful mosque that is nice to see anytime, but at night it glows. Close to the central square and shops with lots of activities.
