This year, executives at Singapore Tourism Board hope to draw more travellers from the Middle East to attend the annual festival. The event, which is one of the most important dates on the calendar for Muslims in Singapore, is also one of the prime showcases for Malay heritage and culture. Hari Raya Puasa marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan and is the equivalent to the Eid al-Fitr festival.
“The Hara Raya Puasa festivities are a very important event for Muslims in Singapore and also clearly portray the modern and ethnically diverse nature of our island state to visitors from around the world,’’ said Alan Tan, Middle East Director, Singapore Tourism Board. Singapore Tourism Board will organise a range of promotions for visitors so that they may sample local culture during Hari Raya Puasa.
