 Global village reminds me of Surajkund mela (carnival) back in India which I use to go since my childhood and it bring me back to my old memory lane. Every year there is something new at Global Village and this year there are many add on entertainments especially for kids, like 3d haunted house, illumination world, animal world and many more. At global village you will find more than 25 countries exhibiting their traditional goods.

The most iconic part of Global village is that all pavilions are made with the theme of it countries, and every pavilion have it country flag flying high, for me the most fascinating part is each pavilion is different from each other and smells different.
