Nothing can quite prepare you for the souks. You can read about them, but being surrounded in the midst of all the chaotic hustle and bustle of the market vendors is an experience like no other. The Marrakech souk districts are everything you imagine them to be. It’s vibrant, bright, loud, busy, and a maze you can get lost in! And we did get lost. Twisting and turning corners was extremely overwhelming! By the time I was fed up, I used the sky to navigate us out. That sounds funny to me now, but that’s literally how we got out. The freaking sky, guises!
A souk is a farmer’s market labyrinth on steroids. Bargaining is the name of the game. Brush up your negotiating skills and get ready for the experience of a lifetime. I present to you the Marrakech souks in pictures.
