What is halal travel & tourism?

Halal travel (halal tourism, Muslim-friendly travel) is a way in which Muslims travel without compromising their faith-based needs.

Muslim-friendly holidays allows Muslims to enjoy their travel experience whilst also practicing their religion.

Examples of halal travel are staying at a hotel that caters for Muslims through being alcohol-free, having options for halal food, offering women-only pool access, and so much more.

Is halal travel only for Muslims?

Halal travel is not only for Muslims, as it can be enjoyed by any traveller looking to experience and immerse themselves in Islamic traditions.

Is halal travel only limited to Muslim countries?

Halal travel is not limited to only Muslim countries as many non-Muslim countries offer halal-friendly experiences.

For example, Tawain (a mainly Buddist & Taoist country) is one of the most Muslim-friendly travel destinations.

During this phase, we’ll ask you about your interests and travel preferences (are you more of a lay at the beach type or jungle trekker?).

Using this information, we’ll design your personalised trip and share with you. You have the option to refine it as much as you like.

Is each itinerary really personalised?

Yes! Each itinerary is one-of-a-kind. We consider your personal tastes and preferences, who you’re traveling with, what your budget is, what you’re interested in doing and seeing, dietary restrictions, your ideal pace of travel, and so much more to build the perfect trip for you.

Can I provide my own travel plan suggestions?

For sure :). We encourage you to let your concierge know of any existing plans, must-see sights you have in mind, or visits to friends’ houses for dinner. Once you receive your itinerary, you’re welcome to request edits and updates.

They definitely can! Simply inform your Halal Travel Designer in the enquiry process via email and they’ll be sure to accommodate your plans.
