    eat and smoke and make merry.....fantastic place

    its amazing to wke to the sound of morning prayers in another country eith the heat and and the atmosphere, nip to see the saadian tombs and down to the central square ,djemma nja or something......snake charmers, acrobats, trannies, characters telling mad stories allsorts man......., the food is fantastic.....night time markets its craazy

    lucky person i love morrocco:)

    before you buy anything in the markets, visit the artisan shops where everything is priced up. gives you an idea of prices for haggling purposes(before getting ripped off).

    if looking to take photos of the square the best place to do it is on the terrace of one of the bars.

    if you have time do excursions to ouarzazate(they have a film studio there, and kazbaars), atlas mountains were great as well.

    when are you going and for how long?

    the jama al fana square is a must visit, try the fresh squeezed orange juice, sit down in the market square to eat, try the kebabs,tagines, sheeps head, snails etc
    A day trip to essaouira is wellworth it, a trip to the atlas mountains as well, abobve all else haggle like mad

    We were there last month. If I walked around with a clenched fist it would be sweaty after 5 mins, it was that hot.

    Watch out for the ladies with the henna needles, in the square there are a few "dentists" if you need a tooth pulling out!
