The city of Merrakech is filled with all kinds of Souks selling loads of incredible articles like spices, jewelry, embroidered clothes, striped hammam towels, djellabas, handmade Berber blankets, antiquity, mint tea and many more things. All the souks of the city look like a perplexing maze of shopping streets that makes them more fun to explore. The key highlight of these souks is its spice shops that offer highly fragrant mint tea, frankincense, soaps, medicines and Berber make-up. The Larger items bought from these souks can be shipped to one’s home country by the shops, but shoppers must get the relevant paperwork from the seller to ensure the arrival of the delivery. All the souks showcase the outstanding traditional craftsmanship that makes them worth a visit. The famous souks that should be explored are Babouche (slipper) Souk, the Dyers' Souk, Ironworkers' Souk, and the Carpet Souk. Remember haggling or bargaining is a part of the shopping in Morocco as it the vendors mark their products up to three times more of its right selling price and it is advised to explore the markets by yourself without hiring any guide.
