its ginormous park but its too crowded. you could barely enjoy each place. Foods inside the park is good but a bit of expensive compare outside. like 20 to 30 countries famous architectures are there and they are selling some products that are made from that country. This park is only only open during winter season in Dubai.

We visited with friend. A waste of time. Very tacky with each country selling the same rubbish. It was like a second rate fun fair. Do NOT bother to go.

A great place to visit to get in some shopping from around the world along with some authentic food. We first visited Global Village in 2011, and it has dramatically improved--each year, they add something new or improve the site. Well worth the visit.

For my opinion it's a must watch place if you want to know the culture of different nations and countries or even for shopping. Almost every big country stall is available there with the traditional God and items. They also present cultural dance. There is also a big music show in evening with lots of different cultural activities. There is... More

it is a very nice place, good buys but it is better to go for the last few days where you can find good bargains but you might not find your size or the color you want. Yaman is great for spices and Honey, while India is the best for scarves shawls
