Ramadan guidelines in Bahrain

Taken from a magazine website: All travelers shd be aware of this.


Don’t smoke, drink, chew gum or eat in public in the hours from sunrise and sunset. It’s offensive, and flagrant flaunting of the rules could also get you a warning from the police or even result in you spending the rest of the month in jail.

Don’t dance or sing in public at any time. Not that you should have many opportunities – there will be no live music gigs and only background music allowed.

Don’t expect to have the kind of blow-out clubbing weekends you might be used to. All bars and nightclubs will be closed for the duration of the month. Also, outlets will refrain from serving alcohol, and that includes restaurants in hotels and distribution centres.

Don’t play loud music at any time in your car, around town or even at home. If it’s audible to others it may offend.

Don’t wear revealing or tight clothes in public, even when you’re heading out for the evening.

Don’t blaspheme or swear in public. Doing so is frowned upon at the best of times, of course, but during the month of Ramadan it’s particularly insulting.


Do listen to your iPod if you want your music fix – so long as the music is inaudible to others you should be okay.

Do make the most of the community spirit and food to be found in the Iftar tents at the city’s hotels. It’s a great opportunity to relax, play games and experience traditional Arabic entertainment.

Do eat at home before heading out for the night – restaurants and tents will be packed.
