Variable Opening Times in Marrakech during Ramadan Holiday
Ramadan means limited opening times for many shops and tourist destinations in Marrakech. Typically for Morocco, the variations are not applied in any consistent fashion. Many places close early, others don’t open until the afternoon and still shut earlier than usual. Here are some examples:
Marjorelle Gardens: Opens 9am, closes 5pm
Saadian Tombs: Opens 10am, closes 3 pm
Oasiria Water Park: Opens 2pm, closes 6pm
Marjane: Opens 10am, but I couldn’t find a sign with the closing time
The souk also peters out early, around 6pm (though the most touristy stall prevail). Some open up again later, but don’t rely on it. All in all a bit confusing !
