The following is a video of the market in Marrakech, Morocco at night. Local Muslim women rush to buy just about everything at around 8PM and the way-be-gone tourist is pushed to the side in the crowd.

I do not feel as if many tourist hotspots on this planet can compare with Marrakech in this regard.
