    Our traveling family can attest to Malaysia and Indonesia as halal-friendly destinations. We hope to give Turkey a try too! For those seeking a Caribbean destination, TnT (Trinidad and Tobago) is a great option. Do give Oman a visit too! :)

    With all the pork being consumed in Thailand, it might be difficult for an observer to find the right food...

  3. Would love to visit some of these places insha Allah. Have been to Turkey and Morocco.

  4. Although it is good to hear that the Gold Coast is making itself more hospitable for Muslim tourists (and possibly residents), one still has to be aware of the racists that still sadly exist in Australia. Especially in Queensland.

  5. I have learnt (recently) that racism is everywhere - where there are people, there is a streak of prejudice. With more visible Muslims thought I'm hopeful people will be more welcoming.

    Are you from Australia? (:

  6. I hope you get to visit them all Keisha! (:

  7. this is an interesting article. i love all these places.
