The Karama Market, Dubai

(3.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Experience a bustling shopping district at The Karama Market, a collection of independent vendors and stalls lining a lengthy pedestrianized street. Full of textiles, leather, replica clothing, and souvenirs, this market represents an alternative to the pristine, sprawling malls of the city. Make sure to haggle for what strikes your fancy, and take your time. Some sellers here can be pretty pushy, so slow things down to make sure you come away with something you actually want. It helps to research beforehand the stalls offering higher quality service and products. Arrange to visit The Karama Market and other attractions in Dubai using our Dubai vacation route planner.
