Abu Dhabi Jan 6: Global Village situated on Emirates Road, Dubai is perhaps the best place to visit during Dubai Shopping Festival. Unlike previous years, this year it is a meeting point of 39 different countries and they have brought with them their culture and traditions.
Global Village has become a star attraction not only among UAE nationals and the expatriates from over 160 different countries, but it is also a hub for the tourists who come in large numbers to visit this beautiful place with varied culture.
Global Village is a major crowd-puller which has been transformed into a world class destination for tourism, entertainment and leisure. It brings together diverse cultures covering a broad spectrum of activities including music, dances, art, handicrafts, theatre, costumes and cuisines from different countries. In addition to the various pavilions set up by different countries it also has a choice of restaurants, shuttle transport services and a huge parking area that can accommodate thousands of vehicles.
Global Village is a place where people could forget the stress of hard work and tension and enjoy and shop to their hearts content. We visited two pavilions and captured some images that caught our attention. It is truly scintillating and the pictures that we have displayed here will say it all! Please watch out this space for more photographs and details of the global village in the coming weeks.
It is truly a "A Wonderland In UAE"!
