Karama Market


in Bur Dubai

Despite its visually unappealing concrete exterior, Karama’s bustling backstreet shopping area is a great place for bargains and crammed with shops selling handicrafts and souvenirs. Vendors may offer to take you to 'secret rooms' in the back of the building, which are crammed with knock-off designer bags and watches.

Quality varies, so it pays to have a keen eye and to know what the originals look like. Prices are low, but bargaining lowers them further.
