Question: Travel during Ramadan

Dear Friends

We are currently in touch with some guides for helping us getting our turkmenistan itinerary ready (thanks a lot already for the help!)

After our Turkmenistan itinerary (around first half of april next year) we want to continue in Azerbaijan, Georgia, East Turkey and maybe Iraqi Kurdistan. 

A big part of this travel would be during Ramadan, therefore my question how it is to travel in these countries during Ramadan (April/Mai 2020 -> Azerbaijan, East Turkey, Iraqi Kurdistan). Any advice? Will we find restaurants during the day? Will tourist sights be open or are they maybe closed?


If someone could give us some advice or hints we gladly appreciate it.

Thanks a lot

Dear Mr. Raphael

Greetings from Azerbaijan!!!

Travel during Ramadan is not different than the normal time.. Except Accomodation Rates (it could be higher than the normal season becasue of holiday) the rest of other things: Tourist destinations, museums, restaurants, shopping centers will be open & active..

 There is only positive impacts of Ramadan Holiday on tourism sphere of Azerbaijan.We are Muslim country but at the same time Azerbaijan is the Tolerant country.

I am always ready to assist you anytime. For any question you can get in touch without hesitation.

Greetings from Azerbaijan, 

Kindly ask you to be informed that all restaurants are open, and you can find nice halal food in. 

To your question about sights - Will tourist sights be open or are they maybe closed?

Yes, all museums and attractions will be open. 

Usually on Monday, museums are closed.
