Time Out Says

The winter of 2018 sees Global Village go into its 23rd season and we couldn’t be more thrilled that the attraction has become such a longstanding fixture in Dubai’s outdoor activities list.

Whatever you’re looking for you’ll find it at this spot – which boasts shopping, food and shows (previous visitors have included  Bollywood performances and displays by the Shaolin Monks).

Add to that firework displays, parades and fairground rides, it’s an action-packed day out for all the family.

Housed in the huge outdoor shopping complex are pavilions selling goods from Oman, Bosnia and Bangladesh, with a total number of pavilions at 27 and cultures represented to 75.

Visitors can also expect heaps of restaurants and street food kiosks offering up cuisine from all around the world – so whether you’re after noodles, curries or kebabs you’ll be spoilt for choice.

An educational and entertaining day out, that’s unique and not to be missed.
Dhs15. Open Sat-Wed 4pm-midnight; Thu-Fri 4pm-1am (open October-April). Mon ladies and families only.
