Red Light District / Hot Zone

by bambalouni

Hello.
Is there such a think as a red light district or a hot zone in Marrakesh for some adult entertainment?
Do hotels allow visitors in the room?
Thanks

Re: Red Light District / Hot Zone

by john9159

Such activities are not openly permitted or practiced in public. Marrakech does not have a red light district and probably never will.
Hotels can easily have their licence to operate revoked if Moroccan girls (or boys) are brought into a hotel by a foreigner.
Some hotels have security at all entrances to prevent locals from being smuggled in; strictly not allowed.
Whilst prostitution does exist, particularly in more tourist oriented towns such as Agadir (a new purpose-built town with tourism in mind), girls only do soft stuff like take you to a club or bar, extract drinks from you at high prices, get commission from the club/bar and that's it, nothing else happens.
There may indeed be working girls who will take you to their home, trouble is this may be 30Km away and taxi drivers being wary of the law will charge very high (unmetered rates) to take you there and back; a very expensive way to have fun.

No there isn't but don't be afraid to ask. Strictley hotels do not allow you take any one into the rooms, however you can rent a flat just if you are to do so ask anyone or if you go to any building and the guards there,
good luck

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Djemaa el Fna in daylight....

by dabuwan

Djemaa el Fna is the central square of Marrakech, close to the old medina, and it is a focal point for the whole city. During daytime, because of the heat, there is not so much going on, just the usual orange juice stalls a few others.

Get cash! no credit cards accepted here

by sunlovey about Tons of ATM machines around Djemma el Fna

You'll find several ATMs (cash machines) located around Djemme el Fna in the direction of Mohammed V blvd/Koutoubia (away from the souks). And you'll find yourself returning to them again and again if you develop a souk shopping habit like we did. It is rare to find a shop in the medina of Marrakesh that accepts credit cards so stocking up on dirhams is essential. And remember, you get the best exchange rate at an ATM.

Note: There's a chance someone will be there waiting for you to take out cash in hopes that you'll share the wealth (often small children or women). It's entirely up to you what to do in such a situation. Tim often felt compelled to give them money even though some advise not to. You'll need cash for nearly everything you'll want to purchase while here unless you're in Ville Nouveau.

In the square

by mrotsmit about Food stalls

At some point you will eat dinner in the middle of the Jemma El Fna, there you'll find the food stalls - big push carts with picnic tables around them. My impression was that this the local version of fast food, there are alot of different carts but most seemed to have the same stuff, ours was "OK" but no big deal.

Snake Charmers In Djemma el-Fna Square

by Mikebb

We visited the main square around lunch time during Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting. Our guide informed us that Djemma el-Fna square normally would be a hive of activity, however due to religious fasting most food stalls and activities will not appear to sunset when the fast is broken.

We found the snake charmer with his 3 or 4 snakes in the middle of the square, the Cobras moving around under the "spell" of the music. Quite a sight and one that you have to pay for if you wish to take a photo. A few Dhiram will charm him and you can take a few photos. Beware if you do not give him some cash and attempt to take a photo.

The Mellah

by Bigjones

The old Jewish district in Marrakesh. Most of the people living there now are Muslims. The atmosphere is a bit different than in the rest of the city. The streets are narrower, the buildings seem higher and very crowded reflecting the conditions of many Jews who lived there until the 60's. There are still synagogues there but the one you can visit doesn't worth it (see Tourist traps).
This district is always lively thanks to the kids playing on the street. But be carefull, most of them already received money or other things from tourists and won't let you go until you give them something. But I don't know if it's a solution to give them something because they will always ask for more. Think of the tourists who will come after you ;-) You'll see that some kids are only nice when they expect something and they insult you if you don't give anything.
