  • Travel to Sri Lanka for your Honeymoon!

    For the newlyweds (or any couples), start packing your bags for Sri Lanka! via GIPHY   Galle Face Beach - Galle Road, Colombo, Sri Lanka Morning walks along Sri Lanka’s beautiful beaches is a must! Even this beach that is located so close to the city centre is a breathtaking sight in the early morning. Take a romantic stroll with your spouse and just spend some quality time to get to know each other.  Beach on Colombo Plan Road However, if you seek more thrill, something like combining beaches with railway tracks, then walk along Colombo Plan Road. It is a tranquil sight of the sea with occasional loud train sounds as the trains pass by the tracks on its way to Galle station. While you are there, stay on to catch a little bit of sunset. All you need is your life partner by your side and a sweet silence as you both listen to the muse of the sea. Negombo beach - Negombo, Sri Lanka If you need some private time with your spouse, Negombo Beach is the beach for you. There are very much lesser people here so you can walk along the beach and have a romantic conversation undisturbed! Amagi Aria Hotel - 640/82 Suhada Mawatha, Puttalam - Colombo Rd, Negombo 11500, Sri Lanka Even better, why not stay at the Amagi Aria Hotel and whisper words of forever as the sun sets leaving you and your spouse with warm lovely feelings. This is the perfect spot to have a heart-to-heart talk with your spouse. Alright, enough about the beaches! Let's go on to talk about just how gorgeous the train ride in Sri Lanka is!  Image Credit: YamuThere are so many beautiful places to visit via train. Places such as Ella, Nuwara Eliya and Kandy are among the top few for the must-visit! The journey to the mentioned places itself is such a breathtaking sight. Views en route from Colombo to Kandy Kandy Train Station  Things to do in Ella: 1.The Nine Arch Bridge Image Credit: Salt in our Hair This gorgeous bridge is located right outside of Ella. It will take about 30 minutes to walk through the woods and reach a beautiful tea field. Be there with your beloved and sip a cup of delicious Sri Lankan tea while watching trains pass by.  2. Swim at Diyaluma Falls Diyaluma waterfall - in Badulla district on the Colombo-Badulla highway, about 6km east of the regional town of Koslanda, and around 30km south of Ella.Image Credit: Pinterest The Diyaluma waterfall is 220-meter high and is the second-highest waterfall in Sri Lanka. On top of the waterfall, it has different levels of natural pools where you can swim. To get to this waterfall is not an easy task! A two-hour tuk-tuk ride from Ella to Poonagala through quintessentially lush Sri Lankan tea plantations followed by a hike downhill through long, dry grass for about 30mins before getting to the upper Diyaluma falls. A short hike further would bring you and your partner to the edge of the world, watching the cascading water drop 220m to the valley below. This is the start of a very challenging honeymoon thus far in Sri Lanka. However, such tasks would allow for a different kind of bonding as you learn more about your partner and even yourself! 3. Climb Little Adam’s Peak  Image Credit: Wandervisions To get to Little Adam’s Peak, you need to follow the trail which is right next to Ella Flower Garden Resort (3rd Mile Post, Passara Road, Ella 90090, Sri Lanka). An alternative entrance is also located at 98 Acres Resort (Greenland Estate, Ella - Passara Rd, Ella, Sri Lanka) and marked by a white Buddha. Just follow the trails and you would only need about an hour before you reach the top and have a lovely sunset view with the-love-of-your-life.    Things to do in Nuwara Eliya:  1. Go to the Tea Plantations Image Credit: Travel Triangle Nuwara Eliya has so many tea plantation fields. One of them is the Pedro Tea Estate. Pedro Estate is about 3.5km east of Nuwara Eliya station and is a 20 minutes drive by rickshaw from the station. You both can have an educational tour of the tea plantations here and learn the process of tea planting!  2. Take a stroll in Victoria Park  Image Credit: Kingsford Residences Well, why not take a stroll in Victoria Park (Badulla Rd, Nuwara Eliya 22200) and have a lovely chat while sipping a nice cuppa tea? This lovely walk with your soulmate will leave you with a tingling feeling and many gorgeous photos together!  3. Gregory Lake Image Credit: Sri Lanka Finder This enchanting lake (Gregory Lake, Nuwara Eliya 22200, Sri Lanka) is a must to visit. It is just a 5 minutes ride on a rickshaw from Nuwara Eliya. Enjoy a breezy walk and cooling weather which definitely calls for a lovely picnic or a sweet ride on the swan boats. Over at this lake, it compels you to show how much you love your spouse by doing things together and caring for each other! THE THING to do in Kandy: Well, we did mention that this honeymoon destination is not for the weak-hearted as the hike at Little Adam's Peak over in Ella was just the start of all hikes. In Kandy, climbing up Adam's Peak is a must if you want to learn the ultimate truth about your partner's character and yours too!  Image Credit: Atlas And Boots Adam’s Peak is located at South Central Sri Lanka and the nearest town is Dalhousie which is the start of the trek up the mountain. Taking the taxi/Grab/Uber/Private car rental from Kandy to Dalhousie is the fastest option to get here as compared to coming by bus or train. The ride takes about an hour and a half. The best time to start climbing Adam’s Peak is in the wee hours (start at 12 am or slightly later) as the climb takes between 2 to 4 hours (depending on fitness levels). This climb will be an opportunity to encourage each other as the total number of steps is about 5000 to 6000 crumbling steps and inclined trekking. Reaching to the 1000th step is already a great achievement but will definitely test you as your legs may go numb or feel very sore. However, with constant coaxing from the beloved, the pain would turn into motivation as watching the sunrise at the peak of the mountain is a glorious sight which leaves you feeling a sense of achievement. It takes a lot for couples to reach the top but hey, love conquers all (even the challenging Adam’s Peak!).  Sunrise at the top of Adam’s PeakImage Credit: The Partying Traveler One of the best feelings in the world is to pray with your spouse. Sri Lanka has a gorgeous mosque located at 2nd Cross Street, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The mosque goes by the name of Red Mosque or Jami Ul-Alfar Masjid.  Image Credit: Atlas Obscura Well, this honeymoon destination has loads of challenging activities to do with your spouse. Despite the pain, it is definitely a worthwhile trip to do together. Marriage may not always be smooth. There may be challenges. Well, challenges are meant to be conquered together, just like how challenging-Sri Lanka was conquered together! ...

  • Every Story Has A Beginning. Here are 7 Historical Places You Should Visit in 2019!

    History surrounds us, whether you're walking down the street, sitting in a cafe or relaxing at home. It can be identified and traced for almost every object. There are many iconic places around the world that are identified by their rich history that still stands amongst us in the present day. This article will explore 7 historical cities you should visit in 2019. Check Out More Halal Travel Blogs 1) Luxor, Egypt We begin with the land of the Pyramids, Om al-dunya (Mother of the world) and the Breadbasket of the Empire. Egypt is generally a treasure cove when it comes to history. From the Pyramids in Giza, to the Hellenistic influences in Alexandria and the Ottoman remnants in the daily lives of their locals. Luxor is often overshadowed by the Capital and Resort towns but for history lovers, Luxor holds an untouched candour. The town's scenery is free of skyscrapers. The Nile and Temple's pillars stand in a way that can transport you away from modern city life. The city is divided by the river, leaving the East side as the lively side and the West side as the dead side. Considered as the oldest city in Egypt, it's no suprise that history surrounds the street. The Luxor Temple and extensions to Karnak Temple are always linked back to the days of Ramsis the 3rd, the Pharoah of Musa (pbuh). Historical Places to Visit: Luxor Temple Valley of the Kings- Tutenkhamun's Tomb Valley of the Queens Karnak Temple Medinet Habu Colossi of Memon 2) Rome, Italy An obvious choice as Rome is an open air museum. When in Rome do as the Romans do. Rome as a city and an expression of life, reminds us how roman lives were like in the early centuries. From the way the roads are structured to the city centre and plazas. A casual bus ride through the city will show you an immense amount of relics, including the Colosseum and fountain of Trevi. The era of Renaissance(rebirth) aimed to link itself back to the prosperity and dominance of the Romans, hence the structures that are in Hellenistic design. It creates a neat circle of history repeating itself. Historical Places to Visit: Castel Sant Angelo Colosseum Trevi Fountain Sistine Chapel The Vatican (though it is technically a separate city) Piazza Novana St Peters Basilica Roman Forum 3) Istanbul, Turkey Where East meets West, Istanbul cannot be compared to any other city in the world. Its unique position globally, historically and socially have made it a beautiful city that's rich in history. Formally known as Constantinople, Istanbul was the capital when the Roman empire split, evolving the city into the Byzantine Empire. After centuries of conflict, the Islamic Caliphate took over and gained access to Eastern Europe. Islamic history is the most prevalent in this destination, with huge, majestic mosques and museums dedicated to sharing Turkey's islamic past. Historical Places to Visit: Topkapi palace Hagia Sophia Sultan Ahmed mosque Grand Bazaar Basilica Cistern Sulemaniye Mosque Dolmabahce palace Galata tower 4) Prague, Czech Republic Prague is a picturesque beautiful city with immense amount of uphills and downhills. This city gives us a cleaner version of what the Bohemian middle ages may have looked like. The cobbled pavements take you back into the past with every step. The sight of houses with wooden panels will make you believe that you're living in a fairytale. Prague was rich in the aspects astrology and religion and the Old Town Square is a reminder of this. An interesting fact about Prague as a city is that is often used to film historical movies and tv shows due to its intact landscape. Historical Places to Visit: Astronomical clock Old town Square Prague Castel St Charles Bridge St Vitus Church Jewish Quarter Wencaslas square 5) Jerusalem - Palestine The holy city is a beautiful culmination of the three monotheistic religion. A truly religious city with Monks, Orthodox Jews and Muslims walking past each other in almost identical modesty and submission to God. This city has undergone immense changes but the old areas will transport you back to the Middle ages. The hilly landscape and forted Walls built by Suleiman the Magnificent shelter a historical haven away from cars and modern buildings. The Al Aqsa complex is not only a place of pilgrimage for Muslims but its serenity and the lack of change show us the steadfastness of Islam throughout the years.  This city is a perfect destination to explore the history of the three religions that majority of the locals practice. Historical Places to Visit:  Ethiopian Church Dome of the Rock Al-Aqsa mosque Old city Western Wall Mount of olives Church of the holy Sepulchre Damuscus Gate 6)Edinburgh, Scotland The capital of Scotland is not only known for the helpful character of the locals but also the history that graces the city. The Edinburgh castle reflects the development of forts and castles as the centuries progressed. With intact architectures displaying the Renaissance and Jacobean eras, Edinburgh is an important state for Scotland because it represents the history of the country's rebellion and cohesion. The rocky roads, gothic buildings and old-fashioned specialist shops truly give a sense of Victorian culture. The city itself holds a historic charm with its bridges, road structures and neoclassical architecture. Hike up Arthur’s seat for a view of the whole city and its sweeping natural scenery. Historical Places to Visit: Arthurs Seat Edinburgh Castle Old Town Holyrood Castle National Museum of Scotland Princes Street 7) Delhi, India India itself is a country drowning in history, so the capital is a good place to start. The Old Delhi holds the beautiful Mughal Red Fort where you can wonder around and imagine being part of the imperial household. Not far from the Red Fort lies Chandni Chowk, a colorful market selling everything from dried fruit to silver jewellery, allowing a historical market experience. This city’s history is heavily intertwined with Hindu and Mughal identities. Visit the intricately lavish Akshardham which shows the artisanal beauty and skillmanship of Hindu artisans. There is an immense list of temples and complexes that are worth a visit because of their unique and beautiful historical influences. A recent culmination of this would be the Lotus Temple which was opened in 1986 and is open to visitors of all religions. Historical Places to Visit: Red Fort Akshardham Qutb Minar complex Laxminarayan Temple Rashtrapati Bhavan Lotus Temple Humayun’s Tomb Get more inspirations for your 2019 trips  ...

  • Melaka: Here are 5 Mosques You Must Visit In Malaysia's Most Historic State

    Malacca or Melaka, also known as the “The Historic State”, is located in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula. With its capital being Malacca City, this destination is situated 148 kilometers away from Kuala Lumpur. Malacca comprises of an abundance of ethnicities and cultural aspects with a mixed blend of people from the Chinese, Indian, Malay and many more ethnic communities. Islamic monuments and Muslim-friendly destinations in Malacca are famous due to the majority of its population being dominated by Muslims. One noteworthy aspect of the structures present in this state is that not all buildings and edifices portraying the Islamic culture are similar to one another. Each and every construction has one significant detail or feature that allows it to stand out from the other complexes. It could be in terms of design, intricate detailing of symbols, past historical representations or simply the construction of the building itself. Given below are 5 examples from the vast amount of historical mosques in Malacca. Read more about Melaka 1) Tranquerah Mosque Picture: Wikipedia Traveling back in time, this mosque was built way back in 1728, making it one of the oldest mosques in the country. It was utilized as the chief mosque of Malacca, before the introduction of the Al-Azim Mosque which was constructed in 1990. Due to the age of the mosque, it had to undergo quite a number of constructions, each time revamping the look and architecture of the building. From being entirely made from scratch with timber, the mosque now has a three-tiered pyramid roof with a pagoda instead of a minaret. This feature enables the mosque to stand out from other traditional mosques. The minute details of the Javanese culture components in its interior signify the blend of the Malay, Chinese and Indonesian cultures. Address: Jalan Tengkera, 75200, Melacca, Jalan Tengkera, Melaka 2) Melaka Straits Mosque Picture: Flickr How often would you come across a mosque that is located on a man-made island? The Melaka Straits Mosque is a one of a kind mosque that is located on Malacca Island which was built more that a decade ago in 2006. A thumping amount of MYR10 million had to be incurred for the construction of the mosque and I think we can all agree that the money was not put to idle waste as the result was the grandiose look of the mosque. If you visit the mosque on a good day where the water level is high, you might be able to snap a picture of the mosque like as if it's floating on water. The mosque was built with the amalgamation of the Malay and Middle-Eastern craftsmanship in mind. Picture: Pinterest The initial look of the mosque at first glance will leave you spellbound thanks to the stained glass windows as the facade of the mosque that showcases Islamic symbols and motifs. Its uniqueness does not end there! The minaret is also constructed with an unusual design. However beautiful the mosque was constructed to be, the journey to the end wasn't too pleasant. Hardships were faced during the time of construction where conservationists were against the location of the mosque due to the belief that many historical artifacts lay submerged within the vicinity of the island. Once you are done visiting the mosque, you can then head over to the closeby Arab City which has a Middle-Eastern themed shopping complex. Address: Jalan Pulau Melaka 8, 75000 Melaka, Malaysia 3) Kampong Kling Mosque Picture: Wikipedia Also considered as one of the oldest mosques in Malacca, the birth of this gem goes back to 1748 when it was built by a group of Indian Muslim traders. The name of the mosque derives from the location that the Indian traders based themselves at. It was originally structured with wood and then later on in 1872, it was reconstructed using brick. The mosque was declared a historical monument by the Department of Museum and Antiquity in 1999. Although the Kampong Kling Mosque went through numerous changes, the original designs were kept intact by having Sumatran, Chinese, Hindu, and the Malacca Malay influences inculcated in its current designs. Even though the mosque is known for its traditional features, there are traces of the Western culture present as well such as the symmetrical arches that have Corinthian columns and a Victorian chandelier. The mosque also provides a few services for tourists such as a guided tour, souvenir shops for those looking to take home memorabilia and robes. Address: 75200 Malacca, Malaysia 4) Al-Azim Mosque Picture: NewStraitsTimes The Al-Azim mosque was constructed between 1989 and 1990 and officiated in July 1990 by 'Yang Di-Pertuan Agong' at that time, Sultan Azlan Shah.  Currently known as the state mosque of Malacca, it is situated next to the Malacca General Hospital in Malacca City. Its construction follows a traditional path in terms of architecture, with a Java and Malay style infused in the mosques structural design. The interior of the mosque also showcases the typical Melaka's Malay influences. Credits go out to Aziz Tapa, who was the mastermind behind the architecture. The mosque consists of green temple-like roof structures and large windows to encourage natural lighting and ventilation coming into the mosque. A significant feature of the mosque would be the 188-feet tall minaret, symbolizing the five principles of Islam. This mosque too was not built with a low budget in mind. A sum of RM19.5 million was utilized for the construction. The mosque can accommodate a total of 11,700 people. It is divided into various sections such as the main prayer hall, mezzanine, meeting room, Imam room, changing rooms and a room for ablution separated for men and women. Address: Bukit Palah Melaka, Melaka 75400 Malaysia, Malaysia 5) Kampung Hulu Mosque Picture: Wikipedia Familiarly known to be the oldest mosque in Malacca, the Kampung Hulu Mosque originates from 1728 and was built by a Chinese immigrant convert. The mosque was renovated in 1892. where the constructions initial wooden concept was transformed into concrete, except for the four prime pillars and roofing. Within the mosque, lies the grave of Sayyid Abdullah Al-Haddad, a renowned religious preacher. The four chief pillars of the mosque are constructed using hardwood and acts as a support for the roof. It is said that the walls were made with a combination of granite, sand and egg whites. Upon arrival to the mosque, you will witness two ancient canons guarding the entrance in the front yard. Address: Jalan Kampung Hulu, Kampung Dua, 75200 Melaka, Malaysia If you are a fan of history with an interest in old architectural hot-spots, Malacca is a must-visit and highly recommended Muslim-friendly destination to fulfill such needs. Be sure to experience an enthralling time-traveling journey through the eras. Read more Halal Travel Blogs...
