Ramadan in Abu Dhabi
Ramadan is an interesting time to be in Abu Dhabi as hotel prices tend to drop and the emirate takes on a completely different way of life. Its timing is lunar and therefore not fixed in terms of the western calendar. Ramadan 2016 runs from 6th June to 5th July (approximately).
This is the month of fasting when Muslims abstain from all food, drinks and smoking from dawn to dusk. Visitors are also requested to refrain from consuming these items in public places in daylight hours during this month. However, four and five star resorts usually have restaurant facilities for non-fasting visitors.
Daytime is quiet and shops and markets may open only in the morning between 10 am to noon and close during the afternoon. When the sun sets, however, Abu Dhabi comes to life. Public places are busy well into the early hours of the morning. Shops are generally open from 8:00 pm up until midnight. This is a great time for shopping, as many large stores feature competitions to win prizes such as cars.
