Global Village is a nice place to spend an evening sampling food and shopping from around the world. The shopping is certainly on the expensive side, but you can rest assured that the products are from that particular country. With its cheap entrance fee, easy access from MBZ road, loads to see, and some entertainment, it is again, a decent way to spend some time in Dubai.

Global Village is a very popular attraction in Dubai. The entry tickets are very reasonably priced at AED 15 per person, and its hassle-free if you purchase them online. There's ample parking on site, just a 10 minutes walk away from the entrance, or you can take free shuttle buses or tiny rickshaws at AED 10 per person. Different areas are allocated to different countries/regions and its very interesting to explore the place. Some countries were well designed, while others did not even sell anything related to their own culture. Too many clothing stores were there for my liking.

My favourite part of the place was the food street. The selection was way better than any food truck events organized in other parts of Dubai.

My advise is to go to Global Village with an empty stomach and a lot of curiosity (well equipped with a comfortable pair of shoes, as there is a bot of walking to do!)

We visit Global village minimum once a year in the last few years. Realize that in fact, we can rent wheelchair anytime just last December 2017, huff... was thinking it should only for a specific purpose. We hired one for my pregnant sister in law - it made our visit easier :).

So many attractions, shops, and foods! Avoid weekend if you don't like a crowded place. Use comfortable use!
