RAMADAN IN KUWAIT

Do's and Don'ts:

a.No eating, drinking or smoking in public – this is a strict rule and is enforced throughout the country, and people seen eating, drinking or smoking could receive a large fine and even be deported.

b. Dress more modestly taking care to cover the shoulders, knees and chest area – ensure that your attire is lowing and that it covers more of you. Modesty is key for men and women during this time.

c. Don’t play loud music in your home or car – Ramadan is a time of reflection and playing loud music is seen as a sign of disrespect. Nightclubs and live music venues are closed during this time and only very soft background music is played in restaurants.

d. No public displays of affection
