What is Global Village?

A huge, multi-cultural theme park, Global Village Dubai has so much to see and do. Full of global pavilions, heaps of cultural shows, carnival rides, street food stands, the region’s first oddity museum, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and loads more.

The Carnaval is home to more than 170 rides, games and attractions for the entire family. From exhilarating thrill rides to the much-loved kids’ zone, Carnaval brings “a whole new meaning to what “fun” is. 

To say you’ll be overwhelmed with choices is an understatement, with more than 200 restaurants and cafes.  Along with Global Village favourites, Fiesta and Happiness Streets, the newly named Firework Avenue boasts a fountain feature, plenty of seating and fantastic street food options.

Inspired by Thailand’s world-famous ‘Umbrella Market’, the new Railway Market is a dessert lover’s paradise. The new Dragon Lake backdrop, the Floating Market now overlooks the new fire fountain show featuring a 20-metre long fire-breathing dragon, reports The Khaleej Times.
