Fodor's Review

At Karama Market, Dubai's largest general souk, products span the gamut from mundane essentials to mass-produced souvenirs to the latest designer copies and fakes—all in huge quantities. Goods spill onto the walkways of this small commercial quarter of shops and kiosks, and all the activity makes for an electric environment. Karama is popular with expat workers who aren't on big tax-free salaries, including thousands of shop assistants, taxi drivers, and construction workers on the lookout for bargain clothing or gifts to take home to their families. There's a range of cheap eateries around the market—tasty Indian and Pakistani fare, and Filipino and Sri Lankan cuisine—making it a great place for budget travelers.
