Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Tourism ‘&’ Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) has launched an informative online guide for those wishing to visit the emirate during Ramadan. Structured in an easy-to-browse section under visitAbuDhabi.ae, Abu Dhabi’s official destination website, the e-guide gives visitors useful information and tips on the Ramadan experience in eight languages: English, Arabic, French, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.
Travellers to the emirate are invited to check these pages for any questions on Ramadan etiquette or to find out how Abu Dhabi’s life is transformed during this month. The e-guide speaks to all visitors and covers a variety of topics from basic information such as, when Ramadan takes place and what it means, to explanations of Suhour’ and Iftar’.
The e-guide also gives visitors an insight into how they can capture the Ramadan spirit and describes why the Holy Month is an ideal time to visit Abu Dhabi for those interested in the emirate’s culture. Whether it’s a visit to the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which updates its complimentary guided tours to include insights into the practices of the Holy Month, or a visit to the annual Ramadan ‘&’ Eid Festival at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, whether it’s socialising and trying special foods at an Iftar in one of the specially erected Ramadan tents, or taking advantage of the special promotions and late shopping hours, travellers to Abu Dhabi will be able to experience a rich and colourful, yet different view of the emirate.
Conceived with travellers’ needs in mind, the Ramadan e-guide is aimed to add to the overall mission’ of visitabudhabi.ae which is to act as a one-stop-shop for tourists who want to explore the emirate, giving them easy access to interact, in any of eight languages, with extensive, dynamic information on Abu Dhabi’s attractions and experiences, culture and heritage, and events and recreation activities.
The consumer-orientated destination website also features a comprehensive hotel search option, which aggregates live deals and room availability from over 50 booking engines, and allows visitors to find real-time information prior to their decision to book.
The website is also complemented by the destination’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google +, Flickr and Pinterest), inviting travellers to become active contributors to the destination, to post, comment, get inspired and share their experience, before, during and after their visit.
