    The global village is really huge and a lot of people visited this. However, the organization was extremely good that there was no problem finding parking or purchasing tickets on the spot and entering the area. We were not quite sure what to expect of this place. Once we entered, we realized it's more like a huge supermarket (styled in an amusement park kind of way) so people can buy different things from different countries. All the different areas are marked with the different country names. Some countries have a huge space (such as China, Turkey, and India), while others are quite small (Germany, France, the South East Asia, and so on). At first, it was quite interesting, we started with Turkey where they had a lot of Turkish food and souvenirs that you could buy. There was also some interesting attraction (for free) if you are full from eating all the food. However, once you visit more and more countries, it seems like they are not really selling products that are authentic (this is mostly the case from European, South East Asia countries). We visited the Germany section and was surprised to see that they only have tattoo parlor (??), which was not German at all. The South East Asia countries were all round up in one corner and they did not sell products that are originally from the country, so it was quite disappointing, we thought that we would be able to really experience different culture equally, although some countries do have more authentic stuff that you could see and taste. All in all it was quite interesting, although a little bit disappointing. It would be good for them to sell more authentic products, and if they do not manage to do that, then maybe it's better to focus on certain countries that do.

    “Great for experiencing many cultures at one place” I loved the concept when I first heard about it. Ever country has it's building decorated with its cultural theme. Inside the building there are shops selling their souvenirs. The entrance is only 15 AED. There are many food outlets selling different food around the world. You can see us buying the traditional Syrian Tamarind drink.

    Amazing Place. It's sort of a funfair which houses stalls as big as a one floored building for all the countries across the world. These stall have delicacies and stuff each of the countries are know for or would proudly display for sale respectively. It's huge and a treat to the eye. Just like going around the world in a few hours. WOULD RECOMMEND TO :Start Early. Be there when the place Opens cause one never has enough time to cover the entire place. Make sure you taste all the different regional delicacies. One can get really good and fairly priced stuff from all over the world. Use the power of bargain. The place looks beautiful once lit up after dark. There is a five ten mins of beautiful fireworks show towards the games and amusement section. There are for one to take home huge and life size variety of soft toys after winning games in the amusement section. You can also get kids carts which little children can use instead of prams.

    Global village is a must visit place for all dubai visitors. It is open in the winter where you can enjoy walking from 4 pm to midnight. Suitable for all. You may buy traditional food and you see special goods from all around the world. If you are in Dubai while Global village is open, do not miss the chance and go visit. It is worth it.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
