Halal friendly holidays cater to Halal conscious consumers. Consuming products and services that are Halal is the foremost consideration of a Muslim, and this trend encompasses food and banking industries as well as lifestyle and leisure activities. With Halal friendly holidays, Halal conscious travellers are now able to explore the world while enjoying services and travel facilities that cater to their religious beliefs. There are several destinations across the world that Halal friendly – both in Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) countries and Non OIC countries. Here are some of the best destinations that you can enjoy your Islamic holiday at.
Malaysia (OIC country): Malaysia encompasses a truly Asian destination and is a melting pot of religion, races and cuisine. Muslim travellers will enjoy this country as Halal food is a norm, shopping options are abundant and there is much to see and do here.
Indonesia (OIC country): Consisting of tens of thousands of islands, Indonesia offers beaches, volcanoes, paddy fields and much more. Indonesia is massive and large parts of it remain a tropical paradise, boasting an infinite variety of flora and fauna. Jakarta, the capital city is well known for its modern society and culture, whereas Sumatra is where you need to be if you are interested in tropical rainforests.
Brunei (OIC country): This is one of the smallest countries on Earth, yet offers so much for vacationers. Blessed with sizeable deposits of oil and gas, this tropical sultanate has intact and pristine rainforest habitats. Explore the jungle, go scuba diving and set your eyes on unspoiled coral reefs and interesting shipwrecks here.
