Worth a visit for some interesting shopping but the constant questions about buying a watch do make it a short attraction. Som great buys to be had.... As with similar places be sure you know what you are buying

Several streets of shops in an old area of Dubai. Didn't find anything well priced, but perhaps I'm not a good haggler!

We went there in the morning, it was so disappointing. A deserted area. Not even worth window shopping. Please don't waste your time and money on it. We regretted going there.

The Safia Perfume Shop just on the right in the street opposite the Karama Post office (Enter from the Post office end) sells western perfumes and aftershaves at very cheap prices . many of them are "testers" which are not going to be used in the retail shops.
