Hi we are thinking of going to karama? Haven't been for a few years and is it still as good? Can anyone recommend a particular shop to go to? Thanks

Well it is a hit and miss. in addition, prices have gone up so much for replicas. If you went there in the past you will see the difference between back then and now. You might come out with a bargain but as i said it is not what it used to be due to the government tighter controls on fake products, making it difficult for the businesses.

Many shops have Instagram and Facebook pages - you can maybe communicate with them ahead of your arrival and see what they can do for you - that seems to be the modus operandi nowadays

It all depends on what all would u like to buy. There are better places then Karama and I would suggest you visit the souks, meena bazar etc instead.
