What’s It?

What if we say you can now experience Thailand in Dubai? Confused? Head to Global Village and you will get to see a cool ‘Floating Market’, just like the one in Thailand. The canal, by the Far East Asia pavilion, is now dedicated to floating stalls, decked with lip -smacking Thai food. From mango treats to pad Thai noodles and steaming hot dumplings, Global Village now has a brand new address for Thai Food lovers. The market has decorated boats, bank-side kiosks, and Tuk-Tuks stocked with Thai food, reflecting Thailand’s vibrant culture and tradition.

The newest addition to the six-month long fest features more than 15 stalls, selling traditional Thai food from Thailand’s towns and villages. Once here, you can be sure to find all things Thai- creamy coconut ice-cream, the traditional Thai dessert Taptim Grob, mango juice, mango smoothies, waffles, dry mangoes and much more.

Sweet treats aside, a few boats also sell Thai Green Curry, grilled meatballs, and grilled fermented minced fish, a delicacy in Thailand. And if you are not a big fan of Thai food, worry not! Global Village lets you go on a world tour without a passport. You can dine, shop, and enjoy various shows from 75 different countries around the globe. The park also includes a huge fun fair that includes more than 100 arcade games and 25 rides, so its time again to win those huge teddy bears.

The 23rd edition of the Global Village kicked off on October 30, 2018 and will be open for visitors until 6 April 2019.
