Ramadhan bazaars promote social intermingling

Ramadhan bazzaar at Bintulu Esplanade
 The Ramadhan bazaars in Bintulu are unique in a special way.  They become the focus of many different ethnic groups of Sarawak to intermingle in a pleasant and harmonious atmosphere as they go out in the open to buy the many types of food, drinks  and delicacies that are abundantly available at the bazaar.  The bazaar at the Bintulu Esplanade seems to be still busy even at the last week of Ramadhan because it is situated at the heart of the Bintulu town where people of all races congregate for their daily work, leisure and shopping. These Ramadhan bazaars are normally open for business around 2.00 pm till about 6.30 pm everyday during the fasting month of Ramadhan.  The month of Ramadhan is something to be welcomed by the peoples of Bintulu, not only for the Muslims for its spiritual benefits but also other races who look forward to discover the vast selection of foods, drinks and delicacies displayed at these month-long  the temporary bazaars.
