Al Karama is one of the oldest street malls of Dubai, the market sells all kinds of gift items, like t shirts and jeans, shoes and ladies handbags. The timing is 10 am to 10:30 pm and on Fridays 3 pm to 10:30 pm. The market used to be closed for lunch time but now it's changed to straight.

Good indoor and outdoor market with plenty of bargains to be had. Plenty of designer copies suck as shoes clothing watches handbags but beware as your customs on return to your host country will not be amused with you breaching copyright laws

Great day out, haggling and spending money at a fraction of the prices. Yes they are copies but brilliant ones at that. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to go back and stock up in May 2017.

Finding anything in Karama is a matter luck. You can also try Dragon Mart. But again, nothing is granted until you actually see it.
