June to September is very hot, with temperatures in the 100°s F (high 40°s C) and 100% humidity.
During Ramadan, most restaurants are closed during the day, although food will be served at your hotel, either in your room or in a secluded area of the hotel. Visitors are asked not to drink, eat or smoke in public places during this time. However, once the daily fast is broken, the streets come alive with activity, creating a carnival atmosphere.
