The Karama Shopping Complex is located at Karama District, one of Dubai’s oldest residential areas. Built in 1975, the Karama Shopping Complex has undergone renovations to update its look yet maintain its character apart from Dubai’s modern malls. It is known for good bargains as well as cheap knockoffs. Just be careful with the authorities when buying imitation products!

Highlights

  • Souvenirs at lower prices: Souvenirs sold at Karama Shopping Complex are priced lower than in other places. You can also haggle your way to even lower the price of your purchase! Popular items include shisha pipes, shawls, and gold trinkets.
  • Street art around the complex: If you love art, then you must visit Karama Shopping Complex. 24 huge murals were recently added on the side of 12 buildings around the complex, which makes it a good reason to shop and enjoy art at the same time. 2 local and 6 international artists were commissioned to create these beautiful artworks that added a major draw to the complex.
