Before choosing this and the next option, check your route to the Global Village on the map, because it has several pitfalls.
Your own car
This is the most comfortable way, but it has one important moment: you need to enter the Global Village from the south. You need to exit Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road right after Al Reem and enter the Global Village parking from the south.
You return trip will be even more complex, because you can’t simply enter Sheikh Mohhamed Bin Zayed Road from the Global Village and you have to go around the Arabian Ranches and Festival City.
Finally, we recommend those lucky people who decided to reach everything by foot to avoid doing that. Walking 6 km along the highway in the desert will kill all positive emotions and memories from visiting local attractions. You will be totally tired and you won’t be able to enjoy the Global Village.
