Travelling to Marrakesh, was one of those experiences to remember. The heat in Morocco was on another level, and the people had a certain way that was definitelyย fresh to me. Regardless, I was determined to make the most of my short stay. One of the places, that was on the top of my list to visit was the infamous souks. For this day a simple vest and denim shorts were the perfect items for this weather, super airy and versatile.

Marrakesh is such a vibrant city visually, and the souks were no exception. The aromatic smells, noises and rich colours, encompasses the distinct vibe of Morocco. I spent the whole day exploring and shopping the amazing maze of souks. There was an abundance of beautiful ceramics, rugs and leather goods – how I wish I could take them home with me.

When it came to haggling I noticed that the people could come across as a little intimidating and even aggressive. Calling you with one price and then after accepting the item, telling you something completely different. This was something I encountered a few times, but I didn’t want it to leave a bitter taste in my mouth. My best tip on this is to ask aboutย prices before even getting into a conversation, this includes taxi’s, street vendors, the henna ladies and just anything that requires parting with cash.

One of the most amazing things to pick up is the Moroccan Argan oil, honestly it is the realest deal, I only wish that I had picked up more!
