Ramadan in Doha, time for fasting or feasting

Recently a supplier from HK who wanted to visit Qatar during Aug-Sept wanted to know 'do offices open during the month of feasting?'. I corrected him saying it is the month of fasting and not the otherway around! But if you look at the images of Ramadan they all show lavish food arrangements, and this must have created the impression among people out side the region.

But really what happens during the month? Today's GT article will explain. The Ritz Carlton reresentative said,"Plus all the decorations and entertainment will be in place to ensure that the ambience for Ramadan is established". Entertainment during Ramadan! All the hotels are busy making arrangements to create an entertaining ambience during Ramadan!!

Would like to see the comments from those who pretend to take care of culture,tradition, etc. :)
