Travel in the month of fasting Ramadan
More than 80% of Indonesian inhabitants are of Muslim faith. Ramadan is the Islamic month of fasting: in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, faithful Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. The month of fasting is one of the duties of a Muslim enshrined in the Koran, in which, in addition to abstaining from eating, thoughts should also be purified, and concentration should be more directed to the faith.
During the month of fasting public life in Indonesia is slower. Given the Southeast Asian heat, it is understandable that employees without food and water may not be able to work that fast and focused these days. In addition, especially on Java many employees of the tourism industry are, including numerous guides, during Ramadan itself on vacation.
As a traveler, you should show respect for the fasting and do not eat, drink or smoke in public during the day, and make sure that your shoulders and legs are covered. Especially during Ramadan, it is important to avoid photographing people during prayers or as part of their ablutions before prayer.
A great spectacle and event is Idul Fitri (Arabic sugar festival), which is celebrated at the end of the fast break. Throughout Indonesia, this is a special holiday, comparable to the Christian Christmas. There are big parades, accompanied by music and fireworks, where you can admire fantastic cars with miniature mosques, giant koran books and other works of art – a truly worth seeing spectacle!
