Yesterday, we visited the GLOBAL VILLAGE in Dubai.

dubaichronicle.com

Global Village  Dubailand is claimed to be the world’s largest tourism, leisure and entertainment project. It is the region’s first cultural, entertainment, family and shopping destination. Every year, it has 6 million visitors over an area of 17,200,000 sq ft (1,600,000 m2).

Global Village started out in the form of a number of kiosks in 1996 located on the Creek Side opposite to Dubai Municipality. It then later shifted to the Oud Metha Area near Wafi City for 5 years.Today, Global Village has 6 million visitors at its current location in DubaiLand. (wikipedia)

This is how it looks like from afar, during the day, 30 minutes early before the gates opened.

At the entrance, with Mom. Can you see me? I’m sitting on the stroller 🙂

Global Village has over 26 pavilions each representing different countries. My parents and I went around the village for 4 1/2 hours try to sample each country’s culture.  It was like going around the world for 4.5 hours!
