The family destination, which usually runs in Dubai throughout the cooler months, will feature pavilions and other attractions from countries worldwide. There will be 26 pavilions for the 26th season, representing 80 global cultures with a notable new addition — the Iraq Pavilion.

Muhannad Ishaq, senior manager, guest relations at Global Village, said: “As part of this season’s infrastructure upgrades, we have introduced more seating areas, adjusted some of the paths to improve guest movement, improved our main stage experience and more.”

Guests can look forward to new food concepts, live entertainment, and splurge on unique shopping experiences.
