Global Village

Reinforcing Dubai’s status as a premier shopping destination, Global Village Dubai is believed to be the world’s largest leisure, retail, tourism and entertainment attraction. Covering an area of 1.6 sq km, the Global Village showcases the very best in cuisine, crafts and culture from countries around the world.

What to expect at Global Village Dubai

Somewhere between a shopping mall and an amusement park, the Global Village is a superb and unforgettable experience for all ages. There are more than 30 pavilions, each one dedicated to a different country – for instance, in 2016/17 the nations of China, Russia, Thailand, Italy and Spain were all represented.

As well as stalls, shops and restaurants offering produce from each country, there is a packed programme of events – from fireworks displays to circus shows and live concerts, there is something for everybody to enjoy.

And that’s not all – the Global Village also includes a great selection of rides at the Fantasy Island Funfair. Jump on the Ferris wheel and get a spectacular view of the complex, or put your driving skills to the test on the dodgems.

When is Global Village Dubai held?

The event is held once a year during the cooler winter months. In 2017/18, it will run from November until April, opening between 4pm and 12am.

There is normally a small admission fee of 15 AED per person, with seniors and children under three years old going free. Family packages which include access to certain rides and parking are available.
