Buro 24/7 Middle East's culture guide: June '18
Here's what to do this month...
We're officially in the middle of 2018 but if you think, with summer right around the corner, that the cultural scene will slow down, you'd be wrong. From more Iftar experiences to Eid celebrations, the ultimate shopping stop, a wellness day out and a must-see art exhibition, this is where you need to be this month.
Iftar with a view
There's a slew of Ramadan tents around Dubai but if you're up for a little adventure for your Iftar outing, head up to the 122nd floor of the stunning Burj Khalifa. The tallest building in the world has created a special four-course Iftar menu at At.mosphere restaurant where you can indulge in a plethora of international dishes and indulgent desserts.
The four-course menu at At.mosphere is priced at Dhs575 and the offer is set to end on the last day of Ramadan – June 14 (dates to be confirmed).
Later this month, the end of Ramadan will signal the beginning of Eid Al-Fitr where the Muslim community around the region comes together to celebrate. There's bound to be a series of events happening around the Middle East, whether its shopping discounts, firework displays or dining offers. Make sure to stay connected to Buro 24/7 Middle East as we bring you more Eid-inspired gift giving ideas and fashion inspirations too.
Eid Al-Fitr is expected to be on June 15.
