AsiaRooms.com highlights the annual Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations are set to take place in September and one of the best places to watch this important cultural and religious occasion is the island of Langkawi.

It takes place every year to mark the culmination of Ramadan, a period during which Muslim people carry out a period of fasting between dawn and dusk. In 2010, Ramadan runs between August 11th and September 9th, with Hari Raya Aidil Fitri taking place over the following two days.

The event is warmly greeted by people throughout the Muslim world, as it signifies victory over their urges to eat and drink during daylight hours. Consequently, it is treated as a joyous occasion, with the positive atmosphere sure to be welcomed by tourists staying in Langkawi hotels at the time.

According to Tourism Malaysia, this time of year sees Muslims put on their best clothes and visit their local mosque.

"Decked in their traditional finery, friends and family from near and far come together to celebrate this joyous occasion," the organisation explained.

It added that a variety of tasty local delicacies will be prepared and served during the celebrations, which are sure to make the festivities memorable.

Hari Raya Aidil Fitri takes place throughout the Muslim world, so tourists staying on Langkawi at the time should never be too far from the party.

AsiaRooms.com recommends a variety of Langkawi accommodation, including the Tanjung Rhu Resort Langkawi.
