Ramadan is that time of the year where people often wonder as to what to do especially if you’re a Non-Muslim. The pubs and cafes to chill around are shut and it’s more of a dry month specially in this part of the world. Rules and regulations are to be followed strictly throughout and some of the Non-Muslims must be feeling lost. But that’s okay.
Regardless of being a Muslim or a Non-Muslim, here are a few budget friendly things you can do after the iftar hours so that you don’t feel bored or lost midway during this month while paying due respect to the holy month of Ramadan and the sentiments and culture of all the Muslims.
Firstly, let’s break the myth of Dubai being expensive. Well, it is but there are still places to enjoy budget friendly things. Let’s begin with this small guide to look what we can do after Iftar.
This is surely the new cool in town. Gone are those days where people used to go for early morning swims. Now, you can go for a mid-night swim past the sunset until midnight and have the time of your life while enjoy the waves hitting you.
Thanks to the 12 metre smart poles at the Umm Sequim Beach that has smart poles, smart changing rooms and smart palms with free Wi-Fi service available to all.
It’s time to calm yourself down with the ultimate Arab experience by riding the abra at the creek and just have a view of the serene water which surely comes to life after iftar. Forget those posh marina cruises and enjoy a calm ride while you have a seek peek into Dubai’s cultural heritage only at the cost of AED 2.
Dubai is just one of those places where life is at fast pace and so is the construction of the projects. The newly made Dubai Water Canal is a perfect example for this and is becoming the new favourite place for all. There are plenty of places to sit and chill with your friends while you’re sipping on the coffee or tea while you view the waterfalls from 8pm until 10 pm.
#4 – WATCH MOVIES
Hey! What’s better than watching movies? Safe and secure. And especially if you have subscribed to the Du movie offer then you can watch a movie with your partner at the cost of one. Cool isn’t? Book your midnight movie and have fun with your friends from different cinemas as per your choices.
So what if it’s hot? Desert camping is still fun. Pack your tents, pack some snacks and gather a group of late night buddies for yourself. Do a mini bonfire and roast marshmallows while sharing some funny stories with your friends or family. Qudra Lake can be a really good option for such a camping.
For all the people out there who love shopping. Hands up! Dubai is wide-awake during Ramadan so here’s your opportunity of shopping until extended mall timings with variety of options at discounted rates.
Opened a couple of months ago is the famous Dubai Glow Garden at Zabeel Park which is open from 6pm to 12 am in the night. You can possibly have an iftar at the park and then get all set to explore this glow garden that has friendly lights shows not only for kids but for the adults too.
The entrance fee for this Glow Garden is AED 60. No, it’s not expensive it’s just worth every penny.
