Should I Go During Ramadan Or Eid Al Fitr?

I have not been to Jordan but I have been to Muslim countries like Malaysia during Ramadan as well as the end of the fasting month.

What I find is while shops tend to close earlier from a tourist point of view, I can also experience the breaking fast atmosphere, which is very different from normal days. In Malaysia, shops and hotels have many kinds of local food to try for a tourist that are only widely available during this special season. And then, there are so many stalls specially set up for Ramadan that a tourist can visit.

But when Eid Al Fitr comes, many shops are closed and people are on holiday. So, for a tourist, while there is a spirit of festivity, a lot of shops may not open for business.

Is it the same in Jordan? Would it be better to go during the Ramadan or at the end of it since I have the flexibility to travel around those two months?
