I just visited the global village in Dubai, I think the place is amazing. Its idea of gathering all nations in one place where you can experience the world culture in one day is very nice.
I liked mostly The India, Turkey, Iran and Yemen.
You must make sure you have enough cash if you are planning to buy things, No visa in most of the shops however there are many ATM machines. Recommend to visit it before 30 March as it will close.

If you're into carting around the most god awful tat, then this is the place for you. Lots of cheap muck which only the least discerning will buy. It's not even a cultural experience (as claimed). Don't waste time or money going there.

We visited near the end of the season, so prices at the pavilions were reasonable. The food concessions were also above average for this type of activity. Admission was AED 10 per person, payable in cash. Parking was free.

I have read a lot of the other reviews and see some negative feedback on here. everyone is entitled to their own opinion. personal I have nothing bad to say i found it exciting and interesting. if you love to shop and like browsing then this is a good place for it, I only made it round the shops and not the fair. found some bargains and think its a great place for gifts to take home and for yourself. yes I was also told I had too much leg on show but it never knocked view or experience its just respecting the culture and rules. Global village is for everyone if you want a bargain and a range of choice make it a place to go.
