Dubai's Famed Tourist Attraction, Global Village To Reopen This October

We have some great news! Dubai's much-loved tourist destination, Global Village, will be opening its doors for a brand new season in October of this year.

Tickets to the family-friendly attraction, which showcases the very best that popular tourist destinations such as Kenya, Egypt, and more have to offer, will cost AED15.

The season marks the 25 of the festival so, tourists can be sure to expect several surprise musical performances from big names, which has previously included former One Direction singer turned solo-artist, Liam Payne.

Due to the current pandemic, the famed Dubai-based destination closed its doors before it's original end date earlier this year. However, organizers have revealed that extra precautions and safety guidelines will be put in place when Global Village opens for the new season.

While we wait, here's a list of the things we're excited to see once it opens this October.
