Ramadan is a special time for Muslims around the world. Tourists travelling to a Muslim country during this holy month of fasting will be presented with a unique opportunity to observe and experience distinctive scenes, customs, and traditions. Although foreigners or non-Muslims are not expected to fast, it is illegal in Iran to eat, drink, or smoke in public during the fasting hours. However, it is mostly acceptable to dine within the confines of your hotel.
If you're planning on travelling to a Muslim-majority region during this time, you’re in for an utterly fascinating experience. This month is traditionally a time of great hospitality and generosity, so go ahead and accept Ramadan sweets or invitations to feasts, parties and family gatherings. This energetic and of course adventurous group from Hungary travel to Iran during Ramadan as they want to explore a Muslim country in a new way.
