The beautiful plants
While Muslim visitors will not be able to find prayer facilities at the Jardin botanique de Bordeaux, the city of Bordeaux is home to a number of mosques. Muslim tourists are therefore advised to ask the locals for directions to the closest mosque to the botanical garden. Or, they can find a quiet, empty space in the garden to offer their prayers.
The botanical garden is not known to house a Halal restaurant; however Muslim visitors looking for Halal food in the city of Bordeaux will be able to locate Halal restaurants without much difficulty, as the city is home to quite a few Halal outlets. Those who are unable to locate these restaurants could dine on vegetarian or seafood dishes, or make inquiries at the mosque.
