I go to malta alot and i know its resept to cover up but being a another religion i dont want to upset anyone,any advise would be very welcome, thank you , cheryl
Also during the day some will be serving if you sit inside ?
I suppose the GolfBrau could be open then as there is inside seating.
The Golf Brau microbrewery ...... does anyone know if this will be open in the daytime during ramadan ? Or will it be shut until after sun down.
Its not far from the harbour so will have to call by and see when we get there.
One important point - make sure you don't run out of cash as it is a holiday season and the ATMs may run dry and not be topped up as frequently as usual.
If you put Eid into Google you will get a lot of information on the festival around the world.
Although there is only just over a week left of Ramadan this year I hope this info will come in useful for anyone going out to Tunisia.
I have just returned from a lovely week in PEK and thought I would let you all know that during Ramadan all the cafes around the marina and fountain area were open during the day and there were plenty of people including myself sitting outside enjoying something to eat and drink in the sun every day. The only resturaunt I know for sure was closed for the whole of Ramadan was the Italian Novo Marina as they have the decorators in. Sorry I can't comment on the Golf Brau as I didn't go there but I would assume it was open like everywhere else.
Also I was able to buy wine for a friend from the off licence in the supermarket, they will sell alcohol to tourists but not to Tunisians during Ramadan.
Finally i was talking to some English people who on arriving were told by their rep not to go down to the marina at night as because it was Ramadan they would have trouble getting a taxi back. This is not the case! We were down many nights and there was was always plenty of taxis waiting the only time there wasn't so many taxis around was from 7-7.30pm as most of the people were getting a quick bite to eat, but even then there was still a couple of drivers waiting for passengers.
I think it is a shame that the people I had been talking to missed out on going to the marina in the evening as it tends to be more lively in the evening and is an enjoyable place to sit an enjoy a drink or two watching the world go by!
Hope this helps, if not this year then next!
Regarding advice being given by reps, I usually take it with a pinch of salt. My first time, years ago with Cosmos, before they pulled out of Tunisia, we had a lovely rep, Brian, who was actually past retirement but gave excellent and useful advice, but since then I've never found one who could really be relied on. That said, I'm sure there are still those who know the place and are interested in giving their guests a good experience, rather than just selling trips, but sadly there are many who don't seem to have that interest.
