We went in evening with my partner and 10 men forced themselves against me and groped by bum. I was covered up entirely. Also snake charmers and monkey men forced monkeys at you. Better during the day

Enjoyed it, but it was very scary. People would grab you and even if you ask for directions they demand money.

Silly question, but is this where i can find dejellaba's? I am planning to go for about a week but don't want to pack heavily being that I would like to buy some lovely dejellaba's from Morocco before i leave and other souvenirs.

Hi, yes you will find lots of djellabas in the souks and in shops around Marrakesh. Ranging from cheap and cheerful ones and some much more elaborate expensive ones.
Does anyone know until what time we can still find the souks open?
