Travelling via Global Village

With the cooler weather comes the Global Village. We lined up at the gate for opening at 4 p.m.

The façades of the pavilions change each year. I particularly like the fake fans on this colonial style building.

Thailand’s marketing seems a little redundant.

The Hong Kong pavilion is quite colorful and inviting.

Gangnam style coffee was available in the South Korea pavilion, but I didn’t see anyone dancing.

Being early in the season and early in the evening, the crowds were light and it was quite pleasant.

We purchased a few things in the African pavilion. They have many intriguing, hand made items. On our next visit, I will definitely go back to the Tipsy Gypsy booth in the Spain pavilion for lovely Christmas gifts.

If you are in the UAE and haven’t gone to Global Village, you are missing out. Go, have some legaimat (Emirati doughnuts), stroll through the pavilions, and catch some of the music/dance performances. It is worthwhile.
