Maximize your Eid al-Fitr 2024 holidays
The Eid al-Fitr celebrations will begin on 21 April (Friday), as the crescent moon has been sighted on Thursday, April 20.
For those working in the public sector in Kuwait, we recommend taking two days off from your annual leave to have a leisurely nine-day break at the end of Ramadan:
- 26 April (Wednesday)
- 27 April (Thursday)
If you can take off during this period, your last day at work will be on 20 April (Thursday), and you will return to work on 30 April (Sunday). This will provide you with 9 days of holiday during Eid al-Fitr!
Eid al-Fitr 2024 destinations for Kuwaitis
There are numerous local and international destinations that you can explore during a nine-day holiday.
If you’re looking for a way to unwind from work, consider a relaxing beach break with your family at Salimiyah or Al Khiran. On the other hand, if you’re looking to add some excitement to your monotonous daily routine, a road trip starting from Kuwait City to Al Wafra, Sabah, Sabah Al Ahmed, Bubiyan Island and back to Kuwait City could be an excellent option. Many hotels in Kuwait are also offering deals and discounts for Ramadan leading up to Eid.
If you’re interested in exploring a new country altogether, Kuwaitis have several exciting cities within close proximity, such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Jeddah, Doha, and others. Short, affordable flights and easy visa systems make GCC countries an excellent choice for a quick, last-minute getaway.
Kuwait’s geographical location at the convergence of three different continents – Asia, Europe, and Africa – opens up even more international destination options for residents. From the lush forests of Rwanda to the wildlife-abundant savannahs of Kenya, from the cultural attractions of India to the historical cities of Spain, you will be spoiled for choice.
The possibilities are endless, whether you’re seeking adventure or simply looking to unwind. With the added benefit of affordable travel deals, you can enjoy a memorable Eid al-Fitr holiday without breaking the bank.
