Guelmim Tourist Traps

    by johnsakura Written Nov 23, 2004

    This camel market still and only subsists by travel agencies that pack tourist in busses from Agadir and take them to see theatrical con men making drama for tourist to see. usually buses arrive about 8:30am and 9am and the market starts 6am. So if you still which to see a camel market even in these conditions go earlier to expect to see the decaying tourists being mistakes by people that say that is the real thing. IS NOT! Even the supposed "tuaregs or the Blue men" outside town in tents, they were put there to bring tourist. the real blue men dont live there.
