If you're looking for a unique iftar experience this year, there are plenty of options across the city from the Kartdrome to giant floating BBQ Donuts on Dubai Creek.
But for something truly spectacular, head to the top of the Burj Khalifa to get an incredible view of Dubai during this special time.
At The Top is serving up traditional Arabic coffee and dates on the observation deck after sunset each day.
Guests visiting the 125th-floor observatory level each evening will be presented with the special gift in a small blue box.
All you need to do to take part is make sure you have a ticket for the attraction, although iftar times are selling out fast.
If you're looking for a slightly different experience, head to Dubai Kartdrome’s iftar buffet, where you can take a spin around the track before tucking in to a special buffet featuring traditional mezze and mixed grills.
Alternatively, take to the waters at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club for one of the floatiest iftars in Dubai.
Board a BBQ Donut with a table decorated in the traditional colours of the region, along with a selection of Middle Eastern treats.
Or experience what it was like to break fast in the deserts of Dubai 50 years ago with Platinum Heritage’s traditional iftar.
Perfectly timed for guests to arrive at the Bedouin camp during Dubai’s stunning sunset, roll up in a 1950s Land Rover and enjoy a scrumptious iftar dinner under the stars.
A selection of activities are available too, including falconry, henna tattoos, bread and Arabic coffee making and star gazing.

All in all, Dubai has plenty of places where you can mark Ramadan in a very special and unique way this year.
Daily until the end of Ramadan. At The Top tickets from Dhs135. Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai, www.burjkhalifa.ae.
