Ramadan is about a month long. It is not a good time to be in a country celebrating it if you simply want to go about your daily business. From dawn to dusk the faithful refrain from eating, drinking, and smoking. This makes them a tad irritable and more than a tad difficult to do business with if you're trying to buy something in a system that runs on negotiating a price.
But once the sun goes down, they more than make up for the deprivations during the day.
