Quick Travel Guide to Marrakech
The central tourist hotspot of Marrakech is its grand market, Djemaa el Fna. Visitors from around the world come to see this bustling square, which is one of the busiest in the world. Here, you can buy an assortment of traditional Moroccan wares, including pottery, paintings, leather goods and silks. Haggling with vendors is encouraged. As the sun goes down, food shops along the square open, transforming the open space into a large outdoor cafeteria. This is also when the nighttime entertainment begins, including such spectacles as fire-eaters and snake charmers.
Other smaller markets called souks exist throughout Marrakech. At these clusters of vendors, you will find a wide selection of exotic goods. Popular items include shoes, dishware and spices.
After you've done some shopping, venture to the Saadian Tombs. Discovered in the early 20th century, these centuries-old tombs house the bodies of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur and his family.
