What people say

"If you still have energy to spare on your way back, I recommend making a stop at Global Village, located outside downtown Dubai. This vibrant destination is a magnificent cultural melting pot, showcasing a variety of performances, food stands, and shops representing 80 different nations from around the world. For an entrance fee of 25 AED, you can immerse yourself in hours of entertainment and enjoyment. Global Village offers a unique experience where you can explore diverse cultures, indulge in delicious cuisine, and shop for unique souvenirs. It's a fantastic way to end your day with even more fun and excitement."
"Go to Global Village with an empty stomach and be prepared to eat your body weight in ethnic food and samplers! My favorite pavilions are Syria, Africa, Turkey, and Thailand (get mango from the Thai pavilion!!) Make sure to check if Global Village is open when you're planning your visit since it is closed in certain months of the year."
"Global Village, celebrates diversity and creativity that makes the world so wonderful! every season they invite the most incredible artistes, performers, and creators from all over to join Dubai and share their talent with guests all day every day!"
