Global Village has opened its doors as Season 25 celebrations begin today.

Bader Anwahi, Chief Executive Officer, Global Village, says: “We have been working around the clock over recent months to ensure this historic season delights our guests. Over the last quarter of a century, the profile and popularity of Global Village have continued to evolve, resulting in a loyal following at home and abroad.”

“We’re delighted to open our gates to the world for this milestone season and invite friends old and new to join us for the celebration. The incredible support we have received from our valued stakeholders, partners, staff and guests have led us to this very special moment and we are grateful for the opportunity to share it with our many patrons. I am so proud of how our team has injected elements of fun into the exceptional precautionary measures that we have implemented. This is an extraordinary year and we are confident that our improved customer experience together with the many exciting new offerings will make it one to remember.”

Guests can explore a multitude of boutiques, food outlets, exhibits and entertainment. This season, Russia Cambodia and Vietnam join the Global Village family.

In total, there are 19 restaurants and four cafés to choose from this season, with the newest additions to the Global Village restaurant scene including Georgian, Syrian, American and South African cuisines. Street food fans are set for more than 170 kiosks and trolleys.

More comfort and safety measures than ever before are also in place as the park operates under “new normal” standards. All guests and staff will be wearing face coverings and Global Village has designed complimentary face masks for kids.

Thermal screening will be in operation at all entry points and more than 600 hand sanitiser stations have been installed across the entire park.  From Carnaval fun to rickshaw trips, disinfection procedures will be in place after every ride. 

The cleaning schedule frequency has also been significantly increased and full disinfection of all facilities will take place after the daily closure of the park.
