Ramadan Shopping and Entertainment at Global Village: Home Accessories, Spices, and Performances


During Ramadan, visitors to Global Village can indulge in shopping at over 3,500 outlets. The
Egypt, Turkey, and Al Sana’a pavilions offer home accessories, including unique pieces and
collections. Dates and sweets can be found at the Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Oman pavilions,
while the UAE, Yemen, Pakistan, Kuwait, and Bahrain pavilions cater to those looking for
spices and condiments. The India pavilion has clay cooking pots that retain the nutritive values
of food cooked in them, making them a great addition to any Iftar table.

  • Throughout the month, Global Village will host various themed shows, with the highlight being
    a 30-piece arabesque Orchestra performing twice every night on the main stage. Other shows

will feature a violin player and the light show kaleidoscope. The park’s new operating hours
during Ramadan are from 6 pm to 2 am daily to accommodate guests during Iftar and Suhoor
timings. The leisure and shopping destination will welcome guests until April 29.

  • Additionally, the Expo City Dubai has started its “Hai Ramadan” event on March 3, which aims
    to bring the community together for a celebration of the holy month with food, festivities, and
    activities. The UAE has also announced official working hours for the public and private
    sectors during the holy month.
