A quick trip to Global Village....

Last friday after having dinner at our relatives place, we were coming back home at 11pm when I saw GLOBAL VILLAGE.... on its bloom... though it was quite late to enter Global village and we all were too tired but I couldnt resist... & finally (after alot of STRUGGLE:) hubs agreed for a quick trip for MASALA TEA (going to global village for tea... what an excuse... heheheee)

Global village is a festival held in dubai starting in the last months of every year.  A huge area is dedicated for this festival. There are 27 pavillions in Global village from different countries including Pakistan, India, Iran, Africa, Jordan, Egypt etc. And each pavillion offers, varity of stuff for shoping, cultural shows etc...  you can check their website for details.



Few pictures I took...

Getting ready...
Though its never too cold in dubai but it is open area... so its cold for kids...

After this picture a female police officer (shurta) came to me and asked me to be careful and dont take pictures of random people. ooppsssss

We wanted to have tea from India Pavillion... we love their MISALA TEA. These are the few Pavillions we crossed on our way to India Pavillion.

THINGS NOT TO MISS
If its your first time to Global Village dont miss these few places...

1. Bundu Khan Stall, for amazing food. They offer amazing pakistani food puri, parathaz, grill etc

2. Africa Pavillian, for some outstanding stuff.... Their cultural masks, amazing hand carved furniture etc.

3. Pakistan Pavillian, for classic fabric... and shoes. Pakistani lawn, cotton is famous world over and really it is awesome.

4. Before visiting check on Global Village website for the schedule of programs (cultural shows of different pavillians).... their cultural shows are worth watching.
I always love going to Global Village... I will be going there again after Muharram.
Oh yeah... we went there last year as well... will try to dig out last years pictures too...

Have fun,
Irum.
