“Madness”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

By day it's full of henna tattooists and snake charmers but it changes into an amazing night time experience with the food stalls and performers. Be careful of the traffic - you need eyes everywhere. Don't miss out on the fresh orange juice - what a treat for 40 dirhams

“A bit scary”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

If you don't mind a lot of noise and hectic bikes passing you and drums and snake charmers then you will lvoe it. Nightime it turns into something else!! When you want to eat you just want to eat. And this could be tiresome when everybody is haggling with you to eat at their "number 34" or 46 stall. Not my cup of tea, but you gotta visit it in the daytime and the evening once just to have that experience in marrakesh.

“Packed full of things to see”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Another fantastic experience - beware of traders offering a 'present' they will then expect one in return - namely money!!!
