Ramadan may be an unfamiliar experience for non-Muslim visitors to Dubai, but it’s also the best time to experience the local culture.
While you can’t eat, drink or smoke in public while the sun’s up, the day-to-day of Dubai stays relatively the same. In fact many restaurants stay open or offer takeaway for tourists and residents who aren’t fasting.
Iftar (the breaking of the fast) is an experience in itself. The festivities start at sunset and continue throughout the night. Ramadan is a very sociable time, and so many families break their fast together and invite friends to join – an important tradition in the UAE and around the world.
You can take part in this tradition with friends and family by heading to an iftar tent at one of the many world-class hotels. Savour the large selection of international cuisines and treats on display while you enjoy regional entertainment. You may even be lucky enough to hear the mellow sounds of a live oud player.
