Start your Journey by rejuvenating your soul at the Al-Hafiz Masjid Image Credit: Abuzar Xheikh on Unsplash What can be better than offering Salath at one of the many beautiful mosques of Lahore? Built near the Lahore International Airport, the Al-Hafiz Masjid is a great place for Muslim tourists flying in the city to offer their first Salath at. Similarly, the Wazir Khan Mosque, built in the 17th century and embellished with rich, intricate designs, welcomes all Muslim travelers in congregational prayers at a fair distance of 20km from the airport. Being one of the best places to visit in Lahore, offering your Salath here will be a memorable experience. It will be effortless to find mosques and prayer places near you in Lahore, as the city is full of them.   2.

The golden age of the Mughal's dominion saw Lahore become the capital of the empire, and today, the ruins of Mughal construction testify to their enduring, timeless grandeur. If you're a fancier of art in historical sights, Lahore's grand history will have you traveling time. No visit to Lahore is complete without a trip to the famed Shalimar Gardens.

Today, the Mosque is on every Muslim tourist's must-see list and is definitely one of the best places to visit in Lahore! It has a vast courtyard with the sun gleaming on the marble domes. The best time to visit this Mosque is early in the morning, as less crowd helps you explore the Mosque in solitude. Try offering at least one of your Salaths here, as it is an experience on its own.

Currently, there are 59 countries have banned Indonesian travelers to visit their country. This scenario has forced Indonesians to stay inside their country and could not fly overseas. Surely foreign tourist is still not allowed to visit Indonesia. However, look at the bright side, Indonesians can travel domestically when the pandemic blows over. Of course, foreign travelers are also welcome to visit this biggest country in the region. So when this pandemic has vanished from Indonesia, there are nice places to look for in Yogyakarta, the southern part of Java Island, a province with magnificent cultures and social life. Yogyakarta is a province where lots of tourist spots that worth to be visited.  Here I would like to recommend you spectacular attractions in Yogyakarta you must see after the pandemic.   Desa Wisata Tinalah - Keeping Traces of the History and Natural Exoticism of Kulon Progo Image Credit: twitter Kulon Progo regency as part of Yogyakarta province has a natural attraction that will pamper our eyes, body, and mind.

Commonly, beach lagoons have a barrier like sand or rock as it is usually located in relatively shallow and quiet locations. Yet, a lagoon in Glagah Beach is different as it is shaped from a slightly concave-shaped part of the land that contains high tide. Time goes by, this basin forms a broad lake with calm waters, lush edges, and overgrown with wild grass. Glagah Beach Lagoon is also used as a water tourism spot, such as paddle boats, canoes, and small boats that you can use to get around in the lagoon. Due to its quiet location and far from the crashing waves, this lagoon is quite crowded with children. For adults, there are fishing spots in this lagoon. Glagah Beach is known as one of the beaches in Jogja which has quite large waves. Therefore, in the coastal area, a tetrapod was built. It is made of a four-legged concrete structure that functions as a wave breaker so that it doesn't enter the shoreline further. In the middle of the tetrapods, a long concrete path was built that led out to sea. This path also functions like access to the pier. Many tourists could sue this tetrapod area for fishing while enjoying the sea breeze and the waves. The presence of a path surrounded by tetrapods is the hallmark of Glagah Beach. Most of the visitors take pictures of the landscape of the waves that break after hitting the tetrapod. Glagah Beach is located in Glagah Village, Temon District, Kulon Progo Regency where it is 15 kilometers from Yogyakarta. If you want to feel like a backpacker, you can follow this route - take a bus from Giwangan Bus Terminal with Jogja - Wates route. From Wates Terminal you can continue the journey by taking a bus Glagah Beach - Congot - Trisik route. You can ask the driver to stop in Glagah Beach entrance gate. To enter Glagah Beach, you have to pay an entrance ticket of IDR 4,000 per person. This ticket is a form of retribution to the local community that has preserved Glagah Beach. For vehicle parking, motorbikes will be charged a rate of IDR 3,000 per unit, and IDR 10,000 cars will be charged per unit. You also have to bring more money if you intend to enjoy various tourist rides on Glagah Beach. If you want to get around the lagoon by boat, you will be charged a fee of IDR 5,000 per person. Meanwhile, if you want to ride a canoe, you will pay a rate of IDR 20,000 per person. Lastly, don't forget to bring your camera.   Kalibiru Image Credit: hargatiket This excellent tourist spot is developed by the local government and supported by the locals. Kalibiru used to be a fertile state forest area, yet the illegal logging has devastated this area so the local government made a call to rejuvenate this forest area. Kalibiru is located at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level which has now become a lush tourist forest. With hills overgrown by various trees, such as cypress, teak, and eucalyptus. This tourist spot is located in the countryside, no wonder you can find many old Javanese architecture houses. These houses functioned as management offices and entrance ticket counters. Thus, visitors must do trekking in the forest to get to the main spot. Here, a path has been provided so that visitors just follow the direction of the road. Kalibiru Nature Tourism provides a viewing tower that visitors can use to enjoy the surrounding scenery. While taking pictures with the background of the hills covered in green trees.

Ticket price: IDR 5,000 / person.   Nglinggo Tea Plantation Image Credit: Puti Niela Kharisma Trekking through terraced slopes covered in green rugs to enjoy the panoramic view of eight high mountain peaks is a charming treat when visiting Nglinggo Tea Plantation, the only tea plantation in Menoreh Hills, Kulon Progo. You can see Camellia sinensis plants filling the hilly terraces of this area when the fog is not coming down. At first glance, it looks like a step covered with a green carpet. The cold air slowly warms up, changing to the cool mountain air. Trekking among the expanse of tea plants, off-road around the tea garden area, or just enjoying the scenery are alternative options for traveling in this tea garden. Not only the unnamed hilltop on the west side which offers a charming panorama. There are still two other peaks on the north side that offer beautiful views from a height. Both are the peaks of Mount Kukusan which is administratively included in the Magelang region, only a few hundred meters from the Nglinggo Tea Plantation. The first, lower peak is known as Dempok Peak, while the higher peak is known as Kendeng Peak. Just like Nglinggo Village, Kendeng Peak also has a history related to Prince Diponegoro. A sacred place in the form of a stone found at the top is believed by residents to be the tomb of a relative of Prince Diponegoro named Pangeran Kendeng. So that the top name is similar to the name of the prince. In contrast to the panoramic views that are presented by the peaks on the west side, the view from Puncak Kendeng and Puncak Dempok does not offer views of the tea garden, but the panoramic view of the eight mountains in Jogja and Central Java, such as Merapi, Merbabu, Andong, Telomoyo, Ungaran, Sumbing, Sindoro, and Prau. In addition, Dempok Peak and Kendeng Peak are also known as favorite spots for sunrise chasers. Address: Nglinggo, Pagerharjo, Samigaluh, Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta Opening hours:  7.00 am to 5.00 pm every day. Ticket price: IDR 5,000 / person.

In Iceland, seeing the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, is at the top of most traveller's bucket list. Aurora is a natural light created in the sky by a disruptive solar wind in the magnetosphere that affects the particles in between, which then produces flashes of lights. Its epic colors and movements can thrill millions of tourists to tour and enjoy the aurora with their bare eyes! There are some excellent towns that you must visit to capture the Northern Light perfectly like Grótta Lighthouse, Öskjuhlíð Forest, and Elliðaárdalur. Be sure to visit these places to see this spectacular view, you won't regret it, we promise! 2. Visiting Mosques in Reykjavík Image Credit: An-Nur Mosque on Facebook; An-Nur Mosque, also known as Félag múslima á Íslandi, officially opened in 2002. For Muslim travellers, visiting mosques when travelling can be an enlightening experience. Not to worry as there are some mosques in the capital city of Iceland, Reykjavík, where you are able to visit and pray. Here are the three magnificent Mosques in Reykjavík:  An-Nur Mosque Situated in the third floor of a building in Reykjavík, An-Nur Mosque, also known as Félag múslima á Íslandi, was founded by the Iceland Muslim Organization in 1997, and officially opened as the first Mosque in 2002. Just like other Mosques, it holds the five daily prayers and Friday Prayers as well. Islamic Cultural Center of Iceland (ICCI) Islamic Cultural Center of Iceland (ICCI) Mosque facilitates children by providing Islamic Education through the Iqro School that is managed by the Youth Islamic Organization. Since it is located on the second floor of a building, the Youth Islamic Organization organizes worshipping activities such as Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha by capitalizing on the spacious place.  The Grand Mosque of Iceland The history of the Grand Mosque is pretty unique. In 1997, this mosque was used as a Cultural and Music Center but later became a restaurant. However, around 2011 to 2012, the Muslim Community had acquired this building and turned it into a mosque. Please note that since you’re in Iceland, it may be difficult to find Islamic materials like prayer mats being sold here. As such, please bring your own prayer set like Travel Mukena & Sejadah to make things easier for you. It is also recommended to bring your own prayer sets for hygiene purposes.  3.

Take a drive from Reykjavík and you will reach your destination in about three to four hours. The journey is definitely worth it; I believe you will not feel worn out looking out of your car window, admiring the greenery and scenic view along the way. Once you get to Jökulsárlón, you will be welcomed by a myriad of the free-flowing iceberg.  Try touching some of the 1000-year-old crystal icebergs but be very careful! If you plan to stay longer till dawn, you will find a beautiful sunset reflected on the iceberg that gives you a breathtaking view. You might even see a bob of seals swimming here! Sightseeing at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is one of the best things to do in Iceland, particularly with your loved ones as you could make new memories here.   5.

Meskipun mungkin susah untuk menemukan tempat makan Halal, apalagi di negara yang Muslimnya adalah minoritas, perasaan yang didapat ketika menemukannya menciptakan sebuah kepuasan tersendiri. Banyak orang bilang bahwa sangat sulit untuk menemukan makanan Halal di Hong Kong apalagi jajanan dan camilannya. Tapi, sekarang semua itu hanyalah mitos! Berikut adalah 7 jajanan Halal yang wajib kamu icipi saat kamu ada di Hong Kong! via GIPHY 1. Es Krim Vegan Kredit Gambar: Happy Cow  di Facebook.

Gulai Sapi Muda Khas Hong Kong Kredit Gambar: Foto oleh Islam Food di Facebook Gulai sapi muda wajib kamu coba saat berkunjung ke Hong Kong. Di banyak negara lain, biasanya gulai daging sapi muda dihidangkan sebagai hidangan bersama nasi putih hangat. Namun, beda dengan Hong Kong, disini gulai daging sapi mudanya tidak dihidangkan bersama nasi putih, tapi dimasukkan ke dalam kantung roti yang bertekstur mirip dengan roti canai. Gulai daging sapi muda yang enak di Hong Kong akan memiliki sari kaldu gurih yang lumer di mulut saat kamu menggigitnya. Saat kamu berkunjung ke tempat ini, coba juga Sup Pangsit Daging Sapi dan Pancake Bawang Merah mereka yang tidak kalah enaknya.

Nasi Bebek Wai Kee Kredit Gambar: Wai Kee Duck Rice oleh silverthoughts di OpenRice Makanan ini memang bukanlah camilan, tapi bisa kami pastikan bahwa Nasi Bebek yang satu ini layak sekali untuk kamu cicipi. Setelah menghabiskan waktu berbelanja di distrik pusat perbelanjaan di Hong Kong, Causeway Bay, jalanlah sedikit ke kios bebek panggang Halal yang cukup terkenal di Hong Kong ini. Cukup berjalan lurus melalui Pasar Bowrington Road dan cari ‘Cooked Food Centre' dan voila, di sana akan kamu temukan warung Nasi Bebek Wai Kee.

Dim Sum Kredit Gambar: Islamic Center Canteen oleh Coconuts Tidak bosan kami merekomendasikan ke kamu makanan yang satu ini, karena kamu memang harus mencicipi dim sum ketika kamu berada di Hong Kong. Dim sum adalah makanan terotentik dari Hong Kong yang mendunia. Di Hong Kong, tempat terbaik untuk mendapatkan dim sum dengan banyak pilihan adalah di Islamic Centre Canteen, yang terletak di dalam Masjid Ammar dan Pusat Islam Osman Ramju Sadick di Wan Chai. Menu favorit kita di sini adalah hidangan Tahu yang ditaburi Garam, dengan bumbu Bawang Putih dan Cabai, Udang Har Gow, Siew Mai, dan Pangsit Udang Goreng (bisa kamu tebak bukan bahwa kami menyukai udang?). Suka tantangan? Coba Kaki Ayam Kukus dengan Saus Kedelai mereka! Kalau dim sum bukanlah makanan favoritmu, The Islamic Center Canteen juga menyajikan hidangan utama masakan khas Cina seperti Nasi Goreng Seafood, Ikan Asam Manis, dan banyak lagi pilihan lainnya. Untuk hidangan penutup, cobalah Steamed Butter Egg Cake mereka! Jarak tempat makan dari Wan Chai MTR cukup jauh jika dengan berjalan, jadi kami menyarankanmu untuk naik salah satu trem tradisional Hong Kong yang berhenti di sepanjang Hennessey Road. Menuju kesana membutuhkan tiga menit berjalan kaki dari stasiun trem terdekat. Lalu, kamu akan berjalan menuju area perbukitan dengan jalan yang menanjak. Catatan tambahan! Ingatlah untuk merencanakan rencana perjalananmu dengan baik dan sesuaikan perjalanan ke Islamic Center Canteen sebelum makan siang. Biasanya, penduduk setempat di Hong Kong makan dim sum di pagi hari. Jadi, jangan membuat kesalahan dengan merencanakan untuk makan dim sum sebagai makan malam, karena semua makanan pasti akan sudah habis dibeli. (Percayalah pada kami, kami pernah ke sana!) Islamic Center Canteen Status Halal: Milik Muslim Alamat: 40 Salvation Army Street, Wan Chai 5/F, Masjid Ammar dan Pusat Islam Osman Ramju Sadick, Hong Kong 5.

Beberapa makanan penutup yang harus kamu coba saat berada di Hong Kong adalah Tang Yuan (Bola – bola Ketan dengan Wijen Hitam), Pancake Kacang Merah, dan Pancake Labu. Semua menu lezat ini bisa kamu dapatkan di Ma's Restaurant. Memang biasanya, para pelancong Muslim berkunjung ke Ma's Restaurant untuk memakan masakan Cina otentik Halal mereka. Tapi, bisa jadi mereka belum mencoba dan melewatkan makanan penutupnya yang juga sama enaknya!
