I had to buy a fake bag for a friend back home a few months ago. Karama is the place you need to go. Shop around plenty of places as quality varies hugely. Once you find the bag you want you'll have to haggle very very hard to get anything like a decent price.

It took me 4 or 5 utterly miserable and very time consuming trips (which i think finally proved i wasnt a tourist willing to be fleeced) before I got something. Was still far more expensive than I considered reasonable but fortunately my friend seems happy.

People just look a fool with snides. If you can't afford the real thing buy something within your price range.

dont buy handbags there, they are awful :(

Qualities vary greatly and I suggest you do research before buying... Also whatever they are asking ex: 1000 AED. Most likely you will be able to get it for 150-200... Be firm and threaten to walk away and even start to leave down the street and they will chase you. Don't think ANY offer they give you is a good one. Be firm from the beginning and just have the "take it or leave it" attitude and you will save a LOT of time!

I search for many replica watches on the markets and it is very important to do your homework as there are some high quality reps out there and also a lot of junk.

Or just save up and buy the real thing! Don't belive the 'real fakes' story - either you are buying a real or a fake. And all those in Karama are fake. A friend of mine bought a fake Gucci clutch after the store owner told her the 'real fake' tale ('it has small defect, workers sneak them out of the factory', etc etc), and to be honest, it did look very much like the real thing (even had an authenticity card), but of course you get what you pay for, and after a couple of months the seams started to frail and the leather looked awful as even though they are made of leather, their leather is not of the same quality nor gets the same types of dyes and treatments. There is also the potential embarrassment of carrying your fake 'Mulberry' only to bump into another woman who has exact same design, except that hers happens to be a 'Jimmy Choo'! :o

I bought one a couple of years back to see what was all the fuzz about. The leather on mine was pretty good but the hardware made it look cheap so I ended up giving it away.

Besides is not really worth the money, they aren't that cheap anyway. The money you spend in 3 or 4 fakes is more than enough to buy a real one from a good designer. Perhaps not a Hermes or LV but there are so many good designers that make beautiful and great quality handbags that will last for many years if properly cared for.

Buy the real thing :) Keep an eye on the sales in the USA to grab a bargain and then get it shipped by Ship and Shop.

China is great, they even have 'proper' shops like Paradi, I also saw Lovis Vutton and Hugo Bass.

People who buy fakes are supporting the criminal gangs.who make huge fortunes using cheap labour in sweat shops in third world countires to rip off the geniune companies and ultimately harm the economy. Knowingly buying a fake is a crime in most civilised countries.
