  • Have A Memorable Stay At These 12 Cool and Trendy Places In Singapore!

    There are plenty of cool, trendy and fresh places for a staycation in Singapore. Below are recommendations that fit the theme, some being more Muslim-friendly than others - so do weigh your options carefully such as factoring proximity to the mosque and Halal eateries in the area. We arranged these unique accommodations (hotels, hostels and glamping option) by location for your ease of planning. Here's Why The Great Madras Should Be Your Next Staycation Spot The City 1) Lloyd's Inn Picture: LloydsInn Lloyd’s Inn used to be a popular budget hotel more than twenty decades ago, but since the makeover and rebranding a few years back, it’s now a sought-after trendy and chic choice of staycation.

If you want an escape yet still feel connected to the city, it is the perfect option thanks to its location - in one of the inner-city residential area.

  • Switzerland Next On Your Bucket List? Here Are 7 Reasons Why You Need To Visit To Spectacular Switzerland

    Have you heard the saying, ‘The best things come in small packages’? Well, we couldn’t describe the stunning destination of Switzerland any better. Although small in size, this European gem is known to be one of the most beautiful destinations on earth and in our humble opinion, puts most others to shame. Most of the time, just looking at pictures of it gives us a serious case of wanderlust! From breath-taking snow-capped mountain peaks to lush green landscapes to majestic lakes, ancient castles, adrenaline pumping activities and friendly people, and so much more, Switzerland offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience even for the most frequent of travelers. via GIPHY We could honestly come up with a million and one reasons for you to visit Switzerland if we tried, (yes, it’s THAT incredible, and that’s how much we love it) but here are our 7 top reasons as to why Switzerland should be number one on your bucket list! Find Attractions near you in Switzerland Find a Halal Restaurant near you in Switzerland   1. It's B-E-A-U-tiful! No matter where you look and where you go, your eyes will be met with the most postcard-perfect sights. Picturesque mountains covered in greenery or snow (depending on when you visit), crystal clear lakes that are more beautiful than anything you could ever dream of, world-renowned glaciers, and mesmerizing waterfalls are just a few things that contribute to the jaw-dropping natural beauty of Switzerland. A trip to Switzerland is most certainly incomplete without a visit to the Matterhorn, the Swiss National Park, Lake Geneva, Jungfraujoch, Lake Lugano, Mount Pilatus, the horse-shoe shaped lake of Oeschinensee and the largest waterfall in Europe; Rhine Falls, just to name a few. So be sure to add these to your must-see list, so you don’t miss out on the best of the best! Places like the Matterhorn are in fact not just the most beautiful of its kind in Switzerland, but instead the whole world! It’s no surprise that pictures of it are commonly found on chocolate boxes and postcards, and most other things associated with the country.   2. It’s Oh-So Sweet... The fact that Switzerland is the birthplace of chocolate - yup, you read that right! - will be reason enough for most of you to start planning your next holiday to the country. In the 1800’s the first chocolate bar was created in Switzerland, and from then on, the Swiss have been mastering the art of producing the best chocolate ever. Smooth, rich, and creamy bars of chocolate from the world’s best brands such as Lindt, Toblerone, and Cailler can be found throughout the country. Numerous chocolate tasting spots have popped up across Switzerland. Chocolate aficionados can even take a factory tour to not only observe chocolate being made, but also sample it, and learn about the traditions and history behind it.   3. ...And Way Too Cheesy! Cheese is another thing you cannot leave Switzerland without trying. The country produces a variety of cheeses that come in all tastes and textures. Head to Gruyères for a bit of Swiss cheese sampling, and when it gets a bit chilly outside, get all comfy indoors and indulge in a pot of traditional Swiss cheese fondue! This bubbling cheese dish can be found throughout the year in Switzerland’s French side - from chalets in the remote countryside to top-notch hotels in the city, but only during winter months in the rest of the country. Muslim tourists looking to indulge in this gooey pot of deliciousness will have to make sure the fondue they order is alcohol-free, as distilled brandy is commonly used.   4. The Slopes Switzerland is known as much for its skiing and snowboarding opportunities as it is for its chocolate, and stunning natural scenery. The country’s numerous alpine ski resorts offer a variety of easily accessible terrains and slopes to suit any ski level, and not just the experts. What better way to up the ante on your Swiss winter getaway, than to cruise down the slopes of the country’s most majestic mountains in Zermatt, St Moritz, or Verbier, while taking in the magnificent views?! While the ski resorts here are known to be pricey, in our opinion, there is no better place in Europe for you to hit the slopes and have some fun in the snow than Switzerland!   5. Historic Cities If old world charm is what you’re on the lookout for when on holiday, Switzerland has managed to perfect the preservation of its medieval towns, all while developing its surroundings, so you’re in for a real treat! Most Swiss cities today are a combination of old and new - with some like Zurich having an Old Town area that has still managed to keep its charm - with cobblestone pathways, museums and architecture all lending to its story. For history buffs, a visit to these old towns definitely adds on to the quintessential Swiss experience. 6. Its Location With Switzerland finding itself located in the heart of Europe, and with its transport system being so accessible and dependable, not only can you pay Switzerland a visit, but you can also drop into places like France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein for a quick visit by train! Why just plan a trip to only Switzerland, when you could see other countries too? You don’t have to convince us otherwise!   7. Its Watches Photo credit - www.myswitzerland.com Ever heard of watch brands TAG Heuer and Rolex? And what about Omega and Schaffhausen? Yes, they’re all Swiss made! World-renowned for its watches, Switzerland is the perfect place to purchase your next luxuriously crafted time piece! Although the purchase won’t be easy on your wallet, it’s most certainly an investment we think you won’t regret making in the long run ;) If you’re curious about Switzerland being Muslim-friendly, then here's our opinion on it. Finding Halal food near you in Switzerland won’t be easy, but it won’t be entirely impossible either, since there's a small percentage of Muslims residing in places such as Geneva and Zürich. If you’re also wondering if you’ll be able to find Mosques and prayer places near you in Switzerland, there are actually a handful. You'll be able to locate Halal restaurants and mosques in Switzerland with the help of the Halaltrip Mobile App. We’re sure the above reasons are enough to convince you to plan a visit to Switzerland, so time to get packing! via GIPHY Find a Halal Hotel near you in Switzerland Go on a Halal Trip with us!...

There are plenty of locations for you to choose from like Trincomalee up north or Galle down South with gorgeous beaches, resort, spas, and more. Kalpitiya is also a great option if you're in the mood for fun activities like whale watching, kite surfing, diving, and fishing. You could also skip the beach entirely and cosy up in the colder regions like Kandy and Nuwara Eliya in the hillside. No matter where you choose to go, you should have your pick of luxury hotels, budget hotels and private villas.

If you are looking for affordable all-inclusive honeymoon packages, you could also choose to stick to a single “attraction” like Langkawi, which is an archipelago of islands off Malaysia. Genting Highlands is another attraction that is worth an overnight stay. Shopping in Malaysia can be an expensive affair, or dirt cheap, depending on where you choose to shop. If you and your spouse are foodies, Malaysia should be at the top of your “must-visit” countries because it is a Muslim majority country.

You could also take a break from your break and head back into the mainland to visit busy markets, interact with the locals and explore the city.

  • 5 Awesome Hotel Hacks

      Hotels are some of the most popular accommodation options among travelers around the world. So as you pick your home away from home, you would ideally want to be smart about the ultimate decision you make. Getting to know some simple hotel room tips and tricks will not only result in you saving money but it would most certainly make your stay more enjoyable. Based on hotel hacks from professional travelers here are some great holiday tips to follow when you book your next Muslim-friendly hotels. Credits - giphy.com   1.     Master some hotel booking hacks Among the top hotel hacks that will save you money, booking directly with the hotel comes off right at the top. But this does not mean you should not make use of online booking sites. These are a great way to research on hotel options and compare prices. Using this research you could call up the hotel and ask for their price. In most instances, the direct quote you get will be less than those offered by agents who often include their commission. You are more likely to get the best deal directly from the hotel, and they might even throw in a special discount or upgrade based on their booking status. Loyalty points are also on offer for direct bookings so even if you are a first-time visitor, you might end up having a regular go-to option in this part of the world.   2.     Book for longer durations The longer you stay the better chances you have of getting a better deal. If you plan on staying in a particular destination, especially one where it is not so easy to find Muslim-friendly hotels, you probably will have to spend some time even looking for Halal accommodation. In such a case it is easier to the same hotel for most of your stay. Also, the hotel will be more open to giving discounts because it is much easier to have the same guest stay in than giving it out to multiple guests. If you are wondering how to find Halal hotels, you might want to check out our recommended Crescent Rated Hotels.   3.     Make the best use of steam While on holiday you would want to look your best and wrinkled up clothes do not go well with this. Hotels often offer laundry services but they tend to be somewhat overpriced. This is where your hot shower becomes useful. One of the most important hotel hacks from professional travelers is to use the steam from your hot shower to get rid of wrinkles. All you need to do is hang up your clothes nearby while you enjoy a hot shower and watch the wrinkles fade away.   4.     Inform about any special events If you are travelling during a special occasion like birthday or anniversary it would help to subtly highlight this as you check in or even inform the hotel in advance. Good hotels do not only offer their guests accommodation; they want their guest to have a great time. So if they know of such event, it is more likely they will have a surprise in store for you like a gift, cake, or if you are really lucky, an upgrade.
