Ramadan etiquette

  • DataFolder/Images/What_to_do/Shopping/Modern_Souks/1_Souk_at_Central_Market.JPG
Residents and visitors are asked to show respect for etiquette during Ramadan.  This means people should refrain from drinking, eating and smoking in public places (this includes chewing gum, sucking sweets or drinking water). 

You can eat and drink in the privacy of your own room but please do not offer food or drink to a Muslim. 

Please dress very conservatively during Ramadan. Men should wear trousers and a shirt while women should wear either long dresses or a conservative top and skirt/trousers: no tight trousers, sweaters, blouses or short, low cut tops in public. Swimwear is of course acceptable on the private beaches of hotels and resorts but again, please use some commonsense in choice of swimwear.

Also you may like to wish taxi drivers ‘Ramadan Kareem’ as you enter their cabs as many in Abu Dhabi are Muslim and so will be fasting. Patience and courteousness is really appreciated during this month. 

Have your say
