For Ramadan home accessories the Egypt, Turkey, and Al Sana’a pavilions will be selling a selection of collections and on-off pieces, while tasty dates and sweets can be found at the KSA, Syria, and Oman pavilions. The UAE, Yemen, Pakistan, Kuwait and Bahrain pavilions will be the places to go for anyone looking for spices and condiments to add that something extra to their Ramadan dishes.

For the Ramadan chefs of the family, the India pavilion offers unique clay cooking pots that would make a wonderful addition to any Iftar table as they are known to retain the nutritive values of food cooked in them.

Across the entire month Global Village will host a variety of Ramadan-themed shows. The highlight will be a magnificent 30-piece arabesque orchestra performing twice every night on the main stage. Other shows guests can look forward to include a violin player and the lightshow Kaleidoscope.
