Moroccan Market - the Medina of Marrakech is one of the city's biggest draws and the grandest of all Berber marketplaces in Morocco. Goods from carpets to leathers, pottery to jewels, lanterns to spices, and more. Plus, snakes, monkeys, and donkeys with laden carts are added to the mix of traffic. Be careful of thieves in this area.Haggling is a tradition of the souks. If you do not like a price after bargaining, feel free to walk away. Often, this will get your price lowered. But do try to be fair!

Jamaa el Fna is at the heart of the Medina, and serves as a main square. Stop here for lunch, as restaurants rule the scenery, and various foods and fare are up for the tasting. Sweet cakes and ginseng teas sold at stalls make for a wonderful after-meal desert, and rooftop restaurants and terraced stalls offer equally tasty treats. So sit down to a meal among at Jemaa el Fna!At night the whole area looks so bright and colorful.Next we wanted to party and so visited the Casino de Marrakech first and after 12:00 partied in Theatro Marrakech Awesome Awesome place.

After the visit to the garden we came out and found few Ice cream stalls and the sellers so excited to see Indians. Moroccan people love Indians and Shahrukh Khan is so so Famous in Morocco. He started singing A R Rehman songs.From the Garden we proceed to the palace- Bahia Palace, With arching courtyards, heavy wooden doors, and complex mosaic floors, the Bahia is an ideal place to soak up the best of Marrakech's architecture.There is a small square located outside of the palace where you can shop and eat.
