Muslims in many other Asian countries including Pakistan and Bangladesh are still fasting today and will celebrate Eid on Friday. Muslims across the world abstain from lavish feasts, drinking, smoking and sex during the Holy month as their way to submit themselves to God.
Despite the end of Holy Ramadan, security remains the top concern in several Muslim states including Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia. The Middle East and Africa are also gazed upon with increased suspect as the US kept its diplomatic facilities closed over terrorist threats.
According to the travel industry experts, top destinations during Eid holidays this year include the UK, France, Austria, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Thailand while the number of passengers flying to Syria, Egypt and Lebanon has dropped. Many believe that Turkey is becoming the new favorite destination for travelers from around the world.
