Normally, life in Dubai is pretty glamorous and liberated for both the Muslim and the non-Muslim population. However, as Ramadan approaches, the environment around you changes quite a bit. During Ramadan, all restaurants, bars, and clubs, with the exception of a few hidden cafes are closed during the day.

Publicly eating and drinking is also prohibited and may result in a heavy penalty if authorities catch you.

However, ramadan in Dubai beginning in May will allow restaurants to experience a busy time after sunset as people will approach them for iftar and suhur meals.

Moreover, you will find shops, malls, and streets to be quiet empty during Ramadan as Muslims get busy in religious prayers and other holy practices. People are also expected to be dressed comparatively modestly during Ramadan.
