Just been to Marrakech and stopped right in the heart of the Medina. Great Riad Choui Choui, a two minute walk to the Jemma el Square. We really enjoyed the trip, just be aware if you look lost the people may take advantage of you...More

We spent a lot of money coming to Marrakech based on the Tripadvisor top ten 2012 traveller choice cities, which placed Marrakech a spot ahead of Istanbul... but it pales in comparison! The jetset are gone and if there ever was any real glamour so...More

The walled part of Marrekesh is why you come to Morocco where you navigate your way through narrow alleyways dodging cars and motor bikes and enjoying the atmosphere.

Medina is the area which is inside the walls. It has many areas. Our favorites were Mellah and Bab Doukkala which are more local than souk area. Just walk around and enjoy the feeling.

Everyone tells the same story - do not respond to any offers of help. They will point you out in the wrong directions, they will try to ask for money. Ignore snakes and monkey. It is immoral to give attention to animal abuse. Do not...More

Busy area but a must see place at late-evening or night. I know people hassle you to come and eat, but don't be scared or worried.

You can't describe how hectic, intense, noisy and overwhelming the place is. Just be smart enough not to get pulled into ever-present scams and merchants persuading you to approach their stalls, or you won't walk too far. Don't be afraid to get lost, you probably...More

Ask your Riad owner to arrange for someone to meet you when the taxi drops you off. The streets are a maze and it’s easy to get lost
