There’s a place outside the city of Dubai where over 30 different countries come together to form what is known as Global Village. Sounds interesting, no? Come take a tour with me to learn more about what’s described as “the largest outdoor theme park in the region.”
Each country is represented by a pavilion where they showcase the nations culture, environment and products. Some of the pavilions included are Turkey, Egypt, China, Jordan, Africa, Italy….the list goes on to a total of 31 different pavilions. Personally Africa was definitely the highlight of my visit! As I walked in I could hear reggae music playing on the background, loved the colorful handmade purses and hats, wooden bowls and hundreds of other unique products.
Before making the drive to Global Village I made sure to read on the parking situation, hours of operation and reviews. Like everything else it had positive and negative reviews but I decided I had to at least go once and make my own conclusions. For those who are visiting Dubai and have some extra time I will definitely suggest visiting Global Village at least once, the bright colors and unique shopping experience make for a fun afternoon away from the massive, high-end brand malls.
One of my favorite parts of blogging is reading all the comments that readers like you leave behind on the site and social media channels. Readings comments like, “wow you make me want to travel to Dubai” or ” it looks so amazing I wish I could be there,” are comments that make me smile. I hope to inspire all of you to travel and visit new places you have not yet been to and inspire you to always add a little “flavour” to your everyday style. Thank you so much for reading and hope everyone has a great weekend.
I ask him f I could borrow his balloons for a picture. He was quick to respond and told me, “balloons go up, you pay me.” Even though he didn’t seem to excited about the idea of a picture…
I certainly was! hahah
