RAMADAN : THINGS TO DO IN DUBAI
Ramadan being a quiet period in Dubai does not mean you cannot enjoy your time here during this season. There are many ways you can get yourself entertained by going out there and exploring! Here are four of the many things you can do in Dubai during Ramadan.
1. GET SOME ARTS AND CRAFTS
Art is definitely something Dubai loves. There is art everywhere you go. That is why there are markets all around the region with arts and crafts.
The Madina Mall will hold a Ramadan craft market free for people who enjoy these things. It will start on the 17th of May to the 3rd of June, which sums up to 18 days. Fabula Ramadan Market is part of this that has items good for gifts.
There are also markets around Dubai like the one in the Old Dubai for you to see the history and culture of this region.
2. STAY HEALTHY!
One of the best time to get fit in Dubai is during Ramadan. You can take a run during the nights before you break your fast or visit amazing restaurants (if you’re not fasting).
There are running tracks all around the city, and there are yoga classes available as well as other sport and fitness activities to satisfy your health needs.
3. FEED YOURSELF WITH HISTORICAL INFORMATION
There are many places in Dubai where you can learn of its history, culture, and other things. Museums are the usual places to educate yourself about the place you are visiting for a short-term or living in. In The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, you can learn about the history of Ramadan. They host a daily iftar with Athan (the call to prayer) as the beginning of it followed by iftar with your hosts. The prices are as follows: AED 185 (adults) and AED 90 (7 to 11 years old). This is from the 8th of May to the 1st of June except Fridays every 7PM to 9PM, House 26 and House 47, Al Fahidi District.
4. BREAK YOUR FAST IN AMAZING RESTAURANTS
There are so many restaurants you can celebrate iftars. Asateer Tent has many tents being sprung up during iftars and suhoor. They offer buffets for both meals with live cooking stations. Bebabel’s customers can enjoy their meals while having the views of the Dubai Fountain. COYA is named as the Best Latin American restaurant by Time Out, so if you’re a fan of Peruvian food, then this is for you. Dubai Opera has its auditorium turned into a banquet hall to serve three different iftar menus with live music.
These are just some of the restaurants and places that you can break your fast or join in the iftar celebration every night during this season.
