DirectRooms.com – Travelers head to Rabat for Eid Al Fitr Holiday in August 2011
July 13, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsMuslim worshippers typically travel long distances to be with family and friends for Eid Al Fitr and Rabat is a hugely popular destination. With so many more visitors expected in the Moroccan city, online hotel room comparator DirectRooms.com advises people to book their places to stay well before travelling to be sure of availability.
The holiday and celebration of Eid Al Fitr exists to recognise the closing of the fasting period of Ramadan, and the celebrations take the form of feasting and giving thanks. Dining with one's family and friends after the fasting period has ended is a hugely popular occurrence and the choice of hotel Rabat has available can as such be limited.
Eid Al Fitr this year will take place on 30th August and Rabat will be busier than ever as a result. Also available to visitors to Rabat this year are great sights like the Kasbah of the Oudaias and also the city's famous Old Medina where tourists can go shopping for mementoes and trinkets.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com says: "Eid al Fitr is one of the biggest events in the Islamic calendar and as such popular cities like Rabat are busier than ever around that time. Booking a hotel room online before travelling makes sense and is the way to securing choice and value on a place to stay."
