Whilst the Holy Month of Ramadan is first and foremost a religious occasion, there’s no denying that it has become synonymous in the UAE with hospitality, retail and attraction deals.

This guide is only current for Ramadan in 2021. We will update with 2022 opening hours and offer in March 2022 when further information becomes available.
