Global Village, the family destination for culture, entertainment and shopping is now back for season 24.

Global Village CEO, Bader Anwahi says, "At Global Village, we’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure Season 24 offers our millions of guests an entertaining ride with breathtaking shows and stunning new features. The many seasonal firsts, coupled with the adventures and thrills our guests know and love, will truly make Season 24 one to remember for both our international visitors and the country’s residents and citizens.”

Some of the exciting additions to Global Village this year includes Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum attraction, new Indian chaat bazaar with authentic Indian vegetarian cuisine, carnival funfair with new rides, and Korea and Azerbaijan pavilions.
