A visually unappealing concrete souq, Karama’s bustling backstreet shopping area is crammed with stores selling handicrafts and souvenirs. Vendors may also likely offer to take you to 'secret rooms' in the back of the building that 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.
