Ramadan Wonder Souq

The Ramadan Wonder Souq allows you to enjoy ending your fast with other visitors, in a calm environment every Tuesday. As the Ramadan canon is fired, you can enjoy an iftar meal as a community. Other attractions at the souq that you can enjoy throughout the week include traditional delicacies from across the world, that you can buy from the many vendors in the area.


You can also shop for coffee beans from Yemen and Africa, prayer mats and beads from Yemen and Afghanistan, teacups from Turkey and Egypt, and other Ramadan-themed décor, traditional dresses, incense and abayas.

You can also look forward to an orchestra performing traditional Arabic compositions and get Henna art on your hands, while enjoying Ramadan-themed shows on the main stage.

Ramadan Step Challenge

Another attraction at Global Village is the Step Challenge, which encourages visitors to clock 10,000 steps within Global Village. The challenge can be completed by logging into the Global Village app on your phone, and those who do complete 10,000 steps during a single visit, and before midnight, automatically enter into a weekly draw.
