What to do during Ramadan in Dubai
Looking for ways to fill your time after Iftar and prayers? Take a look below to discover where you’ll find us during the Holy Month in Dubai.
Shop the Sales
Night owls will be pleased to discover that most malls in the UAE stay open far later than usual during the Holy Month, meaning you can shop well past Iftar and Suhoor without feeling rushed.
You can also expect to save big, as throughout Ramadan and Eid there will be massive promotions and deals on offer at some of the region’s leading retailers.
From state-of-the-art simulators to high-tech rides, bowling and bumper cars, Magic Planet is the ultimate hotspot for gaming enthusiasts.
Located at many leisure hubs across the city, including City Centre Al Shindagha, City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif, the entertainment venue is guaranteed fun for all ages.

Stretch It Out
Feeling sluggish after an Iftar feast? Once you’ve fully digested, why not try a chilled-out yoga class before heading to Suhoor?
Fitness First, one of the leading health clubs in Dubai offers many different classes to suit all levels, ranging from gentle flows for beginners to more advanced moves for keen yogis. You can even try your first class for free before committing to a membership.
Fitness First is located in City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif.
Late Night Movies
Cinemas are expected to extend their hours so you can catch late night showings of all the latest blockbusters.
For a real treat, book tickets to see a movie under the stars at VOX Cinemas' outdoor theatre at Aloft City Centre Deira. The unique concept is open air during the winter months, but now that summer has arrived, the space features a sleek glass roof, offering the same starry effect but in an air-conditioned setting.

Whether you fancy meeting friends for a quick caffeine fix or you’re craving a Suhoor spread, Abd El Wahab is one of the most popular spots in the city come sundown during Ramadan.
The Arabic eatery offers plenty of tasty Middle Eastern bites to work your way through, plus a wide variety of shisha flavours to enjoy on their pretty alfresco terrace overlooking the mall’s gardens.
We also highly recommend stopping by SÖ Tea, the newest addition to City Centre Mirdif and the ideal spot to hang out with friends post Iftar. The entire food menu at this Emirati and Japanese fusion café has been created to complement the many types of artisan teas on offer. Order a pot first and a special teaologist will then advise you on what sweet treats to pair with your brew.
