At night however, the city comes alive with fun activities designed to bring families and friends together. During Ramadan there are two traditional feasts that Muslims enjoy; Suhour, which is the feast before the sunrise, and Iftar, which is the meal to break the fast at sunset. Non-Muslim visitors are encouraged to attend both Suhour and Iftar celebrations across the city to learn and enjoy the traditional feasts and cultural activities.
