Publication: Journey Beyond Travel: Morocco Travel Guide
Summary: Even if shopping isn’t among your favorite activities, browsing in Morocco’s lively souks is a worthwhile cultural experience. This article offers advice and describes what to expect from the experience.
Souks emanate an energy that can feel both invigorating and overwhelming. The packed walkways abound with opportunities to observe locals interacting with family, friends and merchants. Shopkeepers gregariously invite passersby into their stalls, eager to present their wares in hopes of securing a sale. Each seller has a specialty—leather, scarves, jewelry, spices, oils, etc.—and the goods cover every inch of the tightly packed stalls.
