Go Souk Shopping - Marrakech, Morocco, November 2010
No trip to Marrakech would be complete without a spot of shopping. And no Marrakech spot of shopping would be complete without a visit to one of the city's Souks, and the bargaining that comes with it.
Souks, or markets, are found in the central part of town, from the northern edge of Jemaa el Fna were the winding alleyways of the souks start. Vast, chaotic and crowded, Souks are a one-of-a-kind experience where you can pick up anything from jewellery, textiles or carpets, to herbs, love potions and donkeys.
Rue Souk Smarine is a busy street that runs alongside half of the souks and makes a great place to start from. Off Souk el Attarine you will find spice, pottery, textiles and metalwork souks. The Souk el Kebir area meanwhile is the one to head to for leather bags and poufs, carpets, lamps and traditional Moroccan clothing. Whatever you're looking for chances are you'll find it in the souks, alongside things you didn't know you were looking for.
