‘Marrakech - The souks that never sleep’

I think that the shops in the souks do close sometime but no matter how late or how early we were there, we always saw a great activity.

Even if your budget is rather limited and your shopping list is short, the souks offer visitors a fascinating insight into the culture and the daily life of the Marrakchi, more specifically into the ‘haggling aspect’ in the commercial culture.

Travellers have the opportunity to buy some authentic local wares but many of them return repeatedly just to enjoy the sights, the sounds, the aromas and the atmosphere of the souks.

The picture lacks sharpness but I think it shows a little bit the atmosphere I enjoyed there in those bustling market streets.
