Then use Google now you know when the Holy month has started and then hope the moon sighting committee of the country you are in agrees with you. Ramadan as you know can be 29 or 30 days.

A travel site is not the best forum for this type of question use one of the many religious sites instead

As Ramadan is based on a lunar calender and also based on a visual sighting of the moon. All anyone can tell you at the moment that Eid is likely to be 18 or 19 August. Confirmation will be given near the time but that could be as far as the 17 August.

birth of new moon will be at 19:55 on aug 17 making it impossible to see. so eid is most likely on 19 aug
