Ramadan began in the UAE on Thursday, March 23, and will last 29 days this year. The UAE’s official Eid Al Fitr holiday lasts from Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3. Shawwal 1, the first day of Eid, is scheduled to fall on Friday, April 21.

According to travel trends, UAE residents have already begun planning for the long weekend, with airfares to popular destinations increasing for travel during the holiday. As restrictions relax and vaccination rates rise, many people are looking forward to using the long weekend to visit family and friends or explore new places.

In recent years, the UAE has worked to promote domestic tourism, with the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating this trend. With a diverse range of activities and attractions, the country has grown in popularity among both domestic and international visitors.

As the holy month of Ramadan comes to an end, excitement for the upcoming Eid Al Fitr holiday grows. Many people are looking forward to taking advantage of the long weekend, whether they are staying in the UAE or traveling abroad, to rest, relax, and spend time with loved ones.
