Its an awesome place to spend some quality time, but for the fellow travelers " Girls" there is a dress restriction unlike other places in Dubai. Please ensure to carry a full length dress or atleast something to cover your knees and shoulders.

In my opinion anyway. It is good to see all the different countries and props, but taking a walk inside, they all sell pretty much the same things, so once you've seen one country you've seen them all. What was good though was the individual performances in the different countries, and the main stage. Also there are plenty of places... More

Only open during the evenings in the winter months as the attractions are outdoors. Appropriate clothing is needed for entry (women with knees and shoulders covered). A funfair, an open stage performance, restaurants, shopping areas supposedly from different countries, and more. The Global Village is well spread out so wear walking shoes! Some countries' pavilions are more akin to the... More

This a very interesting place. There are features from all over the world, each having their own shopping experience to showcase their culture. It is very spread out and a good place to shop or people watch or take in the various entertainment provided.

What a wonderful place. Too bad the prices of the merchandice sold was pirely based to exploit the tourists. It would have been nice to not feel like one is always pulling one on you as a tourist.

A wonderful spot to explore world cultures without leaving the city. I look forward to and enjoy going there every year. An excellent place for foodies and shoppers alike. They have something new every year! Go early ( as soon as they open) and preferably on a weekday if you are able to. Weekends are very crowded.
