If you thought Dubai was all haute-couture and glamour, think again. Tucked away amid its opulent malls and glitzy skyscrapers are several shopping areas where you can hit the pavement, haggle and walk away with a great bargain.
In addition to selling cheap clothing items,the Karama Shopping Complex is also a great place to buy good-value trinkets and souvenirs.
Here you can pick up Sheesha Pipes, Shawls, Moroccan lamps, Arabian coffee pots,Arabian curved daggers and camel figurines, all at low cost. you can give these wonderful things to your loved ones as a gift.
Pashmina shawls in varied hues abound in every price range — from the cheaper silk mix to the pricier 100 per cent originals.Here you’ll will also find quality knock-off watches and “Christion Dior” replica handbags.
Al Karama market (not to be confused with the less atmospheric Karama Center shopping mall), is a covered shopping arcade next to the fish market on the corner of Sheikh Rashid and Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed roads in Bur Dubai.
The Karama Market is only 10 minutes with your rental car from Dubai Creek. You drive over the Al-Garhoud Bridge to the Sheikh Rashid Road, then turn right and you are in The Karama Market. Please note that you have in the Market not so many Parking Slots.
