Bandung, the capital city of West Java province in Indonesia, has been one the best tourism destinations in South East Asia. Bandung offers many family vacation spots that you should not be missed. Located in the hilly area of Indonesia, Bandung is also known as 'Paris van Java', translating to 'Paris of Java'.

The food in Bandung has also taken the spotlight as a tourist attraction for travelers, especially on social media.
With hotels and halal food scattered around the city, Bandung is the ideal destination for Muslim travelers that are traveling solo or even families that are traveling with children. A halal-friendly hotel or a Shariah-compliant hotel is always helpful for the late night cravings as well as to facilitate our needs when performing our daily supplications.
While a hotel in Bandung would typically cater to the needs of Muslim travelers, a Shariah-compliant hotel has its own special requirements that may differ from other conventional hotels, such as :
1) The hotel can only accept a legally married couple. They have to show their marital document or family card.
2) The hotel must provide Halal food and prove by a Halal certificate given by the Indonesian Ulema Council.
3) The hotel provides qibla direction in every room and a small mosque within the hotel area.
4) Some Shariah-compliant hotels provide meals for Suhoor during Ramadan
