The true Moroccan shopping experience

If shopping is your thing, then Marrakesh is the place to go.  Marrakesh has world-famous markets known as ‘souks’.

Fadoua is at the Jamaa el Fna, a square filled with storytellers, snake charmers and performers. It is on the outskirts of Marrakesh’s famous market, the grand souk.

As you enter the market prepare to be amazed.

Covered by canopies to shield the stallholders from the sun's glare, the market is a labyrinth of never-ending twists and turns, with stalls selling souvenirs, clothes, leather goods, spices and foods including live stock.

There are people everywhere, weaving in and out of each other. Paying attention is crucial. The narrowness of the lanes does not deter the many mopeds and bikes that whizzing past you.
