Lonely Planet review for Karama Shopping Centre
A visually unappealing concrete souq, Karama’s bustling backstreet shopping area is crammed with stores selling handicrafts and souvenirs, ‘genuine fake’ watches and knock-off designer clothing. Since much of the latter is produced in Asian countries, sizes are likely to run small. In other words, if you normally wear a size S and now need XL, it’s probably not because you overindulged at those brunches. Prices are low, but bargaining lowers them further – be adamant. Listen for the cries of hucksters hawking pirated copies: ‘Dee-vee-dees! Bloo moovees!’ The municipality seems to look the other way.
