Celebrating Ramadan in Langkawi – A Period of Fasting and Family Reunions

And this year’s Ramadan is from April 13th to May 13th, which will be followed by three days of magnificent celebrations of Eid al Fitr or Hari Raya Aidilfitri. During this period, all Muslims (except for the elderly and the sick, and women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or menstruating) are required to fast from dawn to sunset, which will be followed by ‘iftar’ or ‘breaking of the fast ceremony’. Ramadan is a time of socialising with loved ones making lively get-togethers a common sight for those who are heading to Langkawi during this period to stay at properties such as Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa; which is among the many options for those who will look for the best resort Langkawi has to offer.

Ramadan usually begins with the sighting of the new moon. And the exact date of it changes each year as the lunar calendar does not line up with the Gregorian calendar. If you’re wishing to visit Langkawi during Ramadan, it is encouraged to avoid dining and smoking in public areas during day time, out of courtesy for Muslims who are fasting.
