Dubai Sights

Global Village

  • Festival–Sight

Fodor's Review

Winter in Dubai brings about many events, but none are more colorful than those at the Global Village. Every year, delegates from more than 30 countries and regions come together in this vast venue southeast of downtown for the largest cultural festival in the emirate. Each country hosts a pavilion that's full of local handicrafts and stalls offering traditional foodstuffs. Folkloric and fireworks displays take place every night, and a huge amusement park is on-site.
