During Ramadan, the nights come alive not because of the Iftars and suhoors, but because some of the UAE’s best attractions it offers on the tickets. So here’s a list of the post-Iftar actives in which one can get engaged with their loved ones throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
- Alserkal Avenue
At Alserkal Avenue, the theme of the holy month is Maintenance and the area’s Ramadan programme comprises of wacky Iftar and suhoor experiences, art and self-care workshops, thought-provoking debates, exhibition openings, guided tours, film screenings and more.
- Dubai Parks and Resorts
This theme park complex is offering two deals that are worth talking off this Ramadan. Firstly, one can enjoy an Iftar buffet at the Mughal-e-Azam Ramadan tent in Bollywood Parks for just Dh50, which consist of entry to the park and new shows at Rajmahal Theatre. Guests who want to enjoy the rides would need to pay Dh10 per attraction. Or, one can pay Dh99 to get entry to all the rides and attractions at the park, as well as the shows and Iftar buffet. Secondly, at Motiongate Dubai, one can join everyone’s popular ogre couple, Shrek and Fiona, for an Iftar at Candy Apple restaurant, and get entry to the park and its rides, for Dh260.
- Hub Zero
For every Dh200 one spends at indoor activity centre Hub Zero, which is located in Dubai’s City Walk, throughout Ramadan, one would get the chance to win a bunch of prizes. It includes an iPhone XR, an annual pass to the park, and an Apple Watch Series 4. Entry is free, and one needs to pay as they go.
In Abu Dhabi
- Louvre Abu Dhabi
Throughout Ramadan, every Friday and Saturday a series of short, looped film screenings, curated by artist Rinku Awtani, would take place at the capital’s museum. Inspiring tales from around the globe with the theme of multiculturalism would be told, emphasizing values of empathy, courage and exploration in both documentary and animation format.
- The Cultural Foundation
A special programme of the venture has been designed by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi at the Cultural Foundation, headed by a group of speakers, writers and artists from across the UAE. For example, cultural expert Ali Al Saloom will head a series of Iftar events on 18 and 25th May, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, interpreting cultural dos and don’ts.
Well, this is a small list of activities that one can take part in throughout Ramadan post-Iftar. There are many similar activities that would keep people engaged across the Emirate.
