Three things to do in Karama

Al Attar Centre
This small, shiny shopping mall sits slap-bang in the middle of Kuwait Street, and houses a range of tiny shops and kiosks selling everything from colourful smartphone covers to hair accessories, affordable clothing to tasty Filipino snacks. There are also a couple of casual eateries inside too.

Karama Souk
If you came to Dubai for the bargain handbags, this is where you should be heading. Pick up leather goods in a huge range of different colours and styles – but be sure to visit a few shops before parting with your cash, as prices for the same items can vary wildly. Do also keep an eye out for the smaller shops selling pashminas in a variety of qualities (from Dhs10 to Dhs500 apiece) and small souvenirs.

Street art
Practically overnight and without any social media hype, many of Karama’s longstanding and traditional buildings were given a fresh and colourful new coat of paint. It is now one of the city’s coolest graffiti spots and boasts 24 different murals. It’s a burst of colour that’s not to be missed.
