Marrakesh’s crazy night market

Definitely the city highlight for me.

Jemaa el-Fnaa is a square and market place in Marrakesh‘s medina quarter (old city). …

During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, water sellers with traditional leather water-bags and brass cups, youths with chained Barbary apes and snake charmers despite the protected status of these species under Moroccan law. …

My best experience in the city was here. At night. It was packed at 9pm on the Holy Day.

April 2011 there was a terrorist bombing her killing 17 people. Now there are cameras and a significant but discrete police presence. Still, you stay alert for scams and pickpockets.
