Discover the delightful taste of tradition
Ramadan is a time of reflection and worship, where Muslims submit to regular prayer and daytime fasting. As the sun sets, the city comes to life as people head to elaborately decorated Ramadan tents and ballrooms to break their fasts with an Iftar buffet (sunset feast) or fuel up for the coming fast with Suhoor (early morning feast). Here are the best Ramadan tents in Dubai.
