  • HalalTrip’s Top Destination Picks for 2017!

    Everyone has a dream travel destination that they'd like to visit someday. We've asked the HalalTrip team about which travel destination they'd like to visit the most and what makes their dream travel destination so special. If you're still wondering where your travels could take you to this year, here are a few more ideas! Source: cheezeburger.com Akitha Kalawitagoda Dream Destination: Kathmandu (Nepal) Is it okay if I start off by saying that I have two destinations and not just one? Cos I’m kinda having a hard time trying to choose one between them. Well guess it’s mainly Nepal and secondly Tibet. Close by, I know, divided by the great Himalayas. The reason I would love to visit Nepal has a lot to do with their history and the culture I follow, as I’m interested in knowing the history of what I believe. They say every activity here revolves around finding yourself and seeking your roots. Adding more to it, I’m always fascinated by the level of creativity of a person. Well Nepal is where you’ll find a lot of creative activities, much comfy clothes and simplicity in a colourful world.   Amjad Kuhafa Dream Destination: Berlin (Germany) Berlin is the capital and the largest city of Germany. I would like to travel to Berlin because it’s one of the greatest football playing cities in the world! I'd also like to experience the city's atmosphere of art, artists and rich culture. I would want to visit unique historical buildings with architectural designs such as the Brandenburg Gate, TV Tower, Berliner Dom and Museum Island with my friends on a winter holiday If I was asked for a suitable destination for a relaxing holiday I would recommend Berlin as the suitable destination.         Dream Destination: Singapore  This is the first time I'm talking about my top dream travel destination. I have asked this a lot from myself; if I could go somewhere in the world, where would I pick to travel? I have long list in mind, destinations that I dream about. Well, moving forward to 2017, I wish I could travel to Singapore and spend a luxury holiday with so much fun. Are you curious to know what I love to see there or what activities I wish to do during my trip to Singapore? Here’s bit out of it! There are plenty of reasons to plan a vacation trip to this opulent city including yummy multi-cuisine food, glistening modern skyscrapers, lavish gardens and of course high class shopping. I’m a shopaholic so whenever I travel, I enjoy shopping very much and do it a lot. So definitely I will do some shopping down the famous Orchard Road. Don’t you think it’ll be awesome to spend a day in Sentosa and hang out for a while at the beautiful beaches in Sentosa Island while relaxing by the ocean wind and waves? I’m expecting to see a diverse mix of things including Gardens By The Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Chinatown, Little India, Bugis and Arab Street, etc. My wish is to spend a comfortable holiday in Marina Bay Sands Hotel while sight-seeing all the beautiful surroundings in Singapore. It’s undoubtedly a travel destination you’d want to visit at least once in your lifetime. Click here for a 4D3N holiday to Singapore   Ranil Sudarshana Dream Destination: Yukon (Canada) I’m a person with a passion to capture nature scenery. With the few photography tools I have, I still manage to fulfil my needs. This is one of main reasons that I enjoy my job role. Moving on, getting back to topic of this article, yes, if I ever get a chance to visit Canada, I will definitely make sure that I’ll see the Northern Lights and that I will carry the best tools to capture amazing moments for a lifetime journey filled with happiness. Click here to Explore Canada   Fazal Bahardeen Dream Destination: Lima (Peru) The first international trip I made was way back in 1982. Since then, over the last 34 years, I have had the opportunity to visit more than 40 countries. However, I have still not been to any city in South America! So that's where I would like to visit in 2017. The Inca ruins in Machu Pichu, Peru will definitely be on top of the list. It looks like a very interesting place and it should have an amazing experience similar to Petra in Jordan. Chile, Venezuela, Bolivia would also be great places to visit. I wish to experience a completely different local and cultural experience. Well, any South American destination would do it for me in 2017! I assume finding Halal food will be rather challenging in that part of the world. I might have to remain vegetarian when traveling. No plans yet however. I hope something such as a work-related trip comes up to take me there in 2017.   Hishama Hashim Dream Destination: Vienna (Austria) It comes as no surprise that with a world of wonder out there meant to be explored, and me being the self-confessed travel fanatic that I am, that I would have a mile long travel bucket list - minus the million dollar budget to actually realize it, of course! While I would happily go anywhere, with just about anyone, if asked, one destination that has managed to keep its #1 spot on that list, while pretty much every other destination has been shuffled around through the years of my obsession with travel, is Europe’s true heart; Vienna. When I found myself constantly daydreaming about it when younger, I knew that the only way I would truly feel like I made it, would be if I got the chance to see, experience & eat my way through the ethereal city. I’m always intrigued by places that are hidden and take a bit of effort to discover, and Vienna, being an eclectic mix of old and new, steeped in awe-inspiring history and culture, its winding cobble stone lanes, along with its enchanting parks, majestic Imperial Palaces such as the Hofburg and Schönbrunn, and its postcard-perfect gotta-see-to-believe scenery, just manages to ignite a serious case of wanderlust within me, like no other destination ever could. Oh and let’s not forget, it also happens to be home to one of my all-time fav desserts - and let me state for the record, I’m not even that big a fan of sweets! - the gooey, coma-inducing apple strudel! While I could ramble on and on for days, for your sake, (yup, you may want to thank me right now ;)) I'm going to leave you with a quote by Mark Twain that has and will forever mean to me things I cannot put into words (shocker, eh!?): "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”     Moiz Mustafa Dream Destination: New York City (USA) I would like to go see New York so I can start conversations with “when I was in New York City….”, only kidding. Being a die-hard comic fan, New York has been home to many of the superhero characters. (Get my point? No? Okay read on…). Chrysler Building is Spidey's (Spider Man) regular perch when he's using his spider-sense, The New York Public Library where this famous quote was spoken, 'With great power comes great responsibility!' Also The Empire State Building where the mighty Thor descended from Asgard. My point is... I would love to go see these iconic buildings in order to picture fiction turn into non-fiction. Apart from my relationship with comics, sports has been an obsession since childhood, and for that the Flushing Meadows, Madison Square Garden and Yankee Stadium is a MUST for me to visit. I am sure you must have heard of the gift France gave to America? The Statue of Liberty. Not to forget Times Square and the heart of it – Madame Tussauds. Interested in arts? Metropolitan Museum of Art’s got it all, ancient to contemporary. New York covers every continent’s worth of culture in one trip. It has and will be my dream destination.   Muzni Mubarak Dream Destination: Jungfrau (Switzerland) You hardly come across someone who doesn't want to travel the world. Well, I am no different. Jungfrau, which is located on top of Europe and known for its famous peaks is high on my bucket list since there is a lot to offer, especially the breathtaking views from the top. I also can't wait to visit Jungfrau's Ice Palace, and the world’s highest Lindt Chocolate Shop - Lindt's Swiss Chocolate Heaven, and what better place to learn to ski and snowboard than on Jungfrau’s very own Jungfraujoch!   Poornima Sivaloganathan Dream Destination: Seoul (South Korea) Seoul! That's where I yearn to be whisked away to. The city has always enthralled me with its unique aura - its busy streets, chic everyday style, large buildings & little coffee shops and the endless places waiting to be explored. My dream visit to Seoul would include a stop to the Namsan Tower, to take in some of the most glorious views of the cityscape as well as to catch a glimpse of the tower's much-famed love padlocks. Having seen and heard so much about it, the Han River is another must-see spot, found in the heart of Seoul. There's just so much to see and do! How great would it be to savour some tteokbokki at one of Seoul's numerous street food stalls..drop by at Insadong, the city's beautiful art district..visit ancient palaces and many other historical sites. Perhaps even be a part of the exhilaration of a Super Show or Kpop concert :3 Like for me, this dazzling South Korean destination has quickly become the dream travel destination of many youth in recent years. This comes as little surprise, owing to the hallyu wave that has swept across the globe, elevating the popularity of Korean entertainment and culture around the world. So yeah, that's where I'd want to go to. Take me to Seoul!   Raiha Marikar Dream Destination: Cape Town (South Africa) If you’re an outdoorsy kind of person like me, then South Africa is your place to be!! Why go anywhere else when you can have the world in Cape Town? Sinking those tired aching soles (and souls) in warm soft sand while soaking up the sun and letting the waves wash away all, leaving only everything good behind, is exactly what I need! If you see it, you'd agree hands down that Cape Town has the world’s best urban beaches! If you’re in a more adventurous mood, just dive in, go snorkeling and explore the tropical coral reefs! Or we could go for a hike, horse riding or even paragliding over those breathtaking beaches! Not good enough? How about getting up close and personal with a great white shark!? Let's not even talk about the mouthwatering food there because when I've got my HalalTrip App I've got all the Halal restaurants in my pocket! Do you really need more reasons to visit? My biggest concern would be in convincing myself that I need to come back!! Oh wait, I think I forgot to go on a safari! See ya later! Click here for a 5D4N holiday to Cape Town, South Africa   Raudha Zaini Dream Destination: Andalusia (Spain) I think Andalusia has an interesting charm about it. Its rich history and UNESCO heritage sites are amongst some of the country’s unique qualities. Its culture, history, religion, political ideologies and events throughout the centuries are palpable in its architecture, food, fashion and people in a vivid juxtaposition of old and new. Some places on my to-visit list include the Alhambra Palace in Granada and the Grand Mosque in Cordoba. I definitely would like to check out the infamous Gaudí buildings that adorn the streets of Barcelona too. One of other the reasons I indulge in travel is to scour the city for local Halal eats and sweets. Sure, you can get Halal Paella and Churros and more in Singapore but nothing beats the original. Also next on the list – Halal Tapas! (wish me luck!).   Safraz Abdeen Dream Destination: Croatia My 20 years of experience in the airline and travel industry has one momentous acme - the knack to travel internationally and domestically. Each year, my wife and I try our best for 1 short haul and 1 long haul vacation, if time permits. Life is full of life and so is Croatia! That’s my target destination for 2017! Click here for a 6D5N holiday to Croatia   Subhashini Prarthana Dream Destination: Melbourne (Australia) Is there a place you've always wanted to go to? For me, that amazing voyage would have to be to Australia, Melbourne. There are many unique and interesting places for me to visit and have a great experience; the wildlife, historical sites, restaurants, forests, deserts and beaches that the country is home to. I hope to have a good time there with my family. When I hear the word Melbourne, my heart beats loud. No one should forget to have a ride on Yarra River. It is at the heart of Melbourne and is located along the southern coast of Australia’s eastern seaboard. When I travel somewhere, I have a bad habit that you'd be surprised to know :/ I always look for restaurants that serve my favourite cuisine. See Melbourne, this is another reason why you've topped my travel list. I love Chinese cuisine and I will be definitely search for places with the best Chinese restaurants in Melbourne. I will probably be staying in China Town during my whole trip! Also I'd never forget to do some shopping around the Crown Shopping Mall. Melbourne, I wish to see you soon and I hope to have an unforgettable experience with you. Can’t wait until that day.   Click here for travel destination ideas for 2017!     ...

  • The Best 10 Countries to Backpack on a Budget for 2016

    If one of your resolutions this year was to travel more, but your budget doesn’t quite permit it, check out our guide to places that allow you to see the world and its wonders without breaking the bank! . Indonesia Indonesia is the perfect place to backpack through, if you don’t have a rigid itinerary. With so much to do and so much to see, take advantage of the cheap food and accommodation to explore the depths of beauty here. The good thing about Indonesia being such a tourist destination is that they cater to each end of the spectrum – luxury living or bare necessities; and even if all you get is a room with a bathroom (which is generally under USD15), it is well worth the money you pay. Street food is a great way to go in Indonesia, to maintain flavor and price. If you’re looking to cut costs, stick with a veggie plate because meats add more to the bill. Even with the variety of dishes and prices, you would be spending under USD3 for a meal. There are plenty of places to go and things to do without breaking the bank. Going the usual tourist-route means pricier fares, so veer off the path and climb a volcano in Bandung, explore the scenic botanical gardens in Bogor, and discover village life in Kalibaru. . Peru Rich in history, culture, and wonders, Peru is a backpacking adventure. Ranging between USD25-40 per day spent on accommodation, food, traveling, as well as activities, the difference in costs only exist depending on the level of luxury you require and the kind of activities you choose. Opt for guesthouses instead of hostels in popular destinations like Cusco, Arequipa and Lima, as they use tourism to their advantage by pricing higher. Lunch is the main meal in Peru and can be found for just over USD1. This extremely cheap meal is a set menu that is fulfilling in taste and quantity. The best places to go to are Arequipa and Colca Canyon, and Cusco and Machu Picchu. As amazing as other places are, these are the best. Huacachina is a fun stop oasis in the desert near Ica that allows you to relax or experience some thrills with sandboarding and dune-buggy riding. Other adventures including white water rafting near Arequipa, trekking for a few days in Colca Canyon - appreciating the beauty and spotting giant Condors, observing Alpacas, and exploring the Amazon from Iquitos or Puerto Maldonado. . Thailand A must-visit in South East Asia! So much so that some areas like Bangkok are completely run over by tourists. To avoid the crowds and enjoy the splendor of the country, veer off the beaten track to places less travelled. You can find basic accommodation with beds and a fan for under USD10 a day, but keep in mind that the South of Thailand is costlier than the North due to its tourist potential. Street food is easy to come by and can be found for under USD2 for a small meal, or under USD7 for a big one, which is the same as a restaurant, if you want the comfort of one. Things to do include checking out the snake farm and show in Bangkok, getting a massage, scuba diving in the Similian Islands, and visiting Isaan – a rural farming village that takes you away from the crazy city life. Be sure to check out Khao Sok National Park, where you can find caves, jungles, lakes, rivers, and some of the largest limestone krysts, which make for a gem of a park to trek around in. . Madagascar Known mostly because of the animated movie, Madagascar has beauty yet to be explored. Home to 80% of flora and fauna that is not found anywhere else in the world, it is popular for its lemurs, beaches, and wildlife. Backpackers on a budget are advised to sleep in the tents widely available around the national parks which comes to under USD2, or spend less than USD4 on a hostel. You can find traditional Malagasy traditional food for less than USD2 but it is usually tasteless rice with a few pieces of meat. However, French cuisine is widespread and tasty, and can be found at a little more of a price at around USD7. Experience the amazing scenic beauty of Madagascar in the Ranomafana National Park, and Isalo National Park - both with their diverse ecosystems - and the tropical island of Ile Ste Marie, which, in addition to relaxing on its beach, also offers watersports for thrill-seekers. Keep in mind that parks need a guide to venture into, which is an additional cost to the entry fee. . Malaysia Certain people consider Malaysia to be a little more of a costly destination, but it is great value for money for a backpacker, and around the same level as Indonesia and Thailand. Its developed city offers comfort, while its diverse landscape offers adventure. Accommodation is available for about USD10 for a hostel, even while being modern and well-equipped, along with A/C. Food is pretty cheap - at around USD3 for street food, while a local restaurant will cost you around USD8. There is a wide variety of mouth-watering Malaysian and Indian food available cheap, amongst others. If you spend a few days in Kuala Lumpur, head over to the Petronas Towers, or relax in the Lake Gardens. If you’re seeking more excitement, hike in Taman Negara, let yourself go in Kuching, visit the Crystal Mosque in Terengganu, and don’t miss out on Kenyir Lake and Cameron Highlands. . Nicaragua Even though Nicaragua is the biggest country in South America, civil wars and earthquakes have meant that it has hardly been on anyone’s travel list except of late. And so, it is the cheapest country to backpack in, while enjoying a life of adventure. Accommodation is easily found for about USD6 for a dorm bed, or USD10 for a private room, but keep in mind that Leon is a bit more expensive. Food can be anywhere between USD1 and USD10, depending on the kind you get. There aren’t many options for street food, and Western food is costlier with less taste and value. There is plenty to do in Nicaragua – try your hand at fishing, swimming, kayaking or paragliding at the crater lake of Apoyo, enjoy the thrills of Ometepe like hiking up volcanoes or mountain biking, or take it slow and spend your days in a hammock, taking in the view. For those who wish to truly live on the edge, volcano boarding is always an option, in addition to hiking up an active volcano and peering down its crater to the molten lava below! . New Zealand With its epic breathtaking scenery, New Zealand is just waiting to be explored. Discover landscapes beyond what you have seen on Lord of the Rings, and be in awe of the splendor in this country. Backpacking on a budget in New Zealand is doable if you know where to cut costs. Tourism here is aimed at the outdoors, and that can get a bit pricey, so be sure to take note of the freebies and cheap routes where you can. In looking for a place to stay, New Zealand is very backpacker-friendly – besides a campsite or a bed (between USD5 and USD10), you could save a few dollars a night by obtaining a Budget Backpacker Hostel (BBH) card for USD50. You could also WWOOF it (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) – where you help out on a farm in exchange for food and boarding. The ultimate backpacking experience! It is most budget-friendly if you cook meals yourself – spending about USD50 a week, rather than much more eating at restaurants. There is an abundance of activities to do in New Zealand, so make sure you budget for them and don’t try to fit it all, as you will overspend and not enjoy a hectic holiday. Use the Flexipass to go sightseeing, and watch the dolphins at the Bay of Islands, experience the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves, visit Abel Tasman National Park, go skiing in Queenstown, or take advantage of the spectacular nature and national parks and just take a walk. . Turkey This fusion of East meets West is relatively new in the backpacking world. Turkey is rich in history and culture, one of the few countries that holds artefacts that are 2000 years old. Accommodation is fairly cheap, at less than USD10 and an even lower, USD3 at Olympos. Considered one of the best cuisines in the world, eating out will get you more than your money’s worth, in terms of flavor. You can find a hearty 3-course meal for around USD10, but would be costlier in less touristy areas. Whether it’s the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, the splendor of Cappadocia, examining the ancient ruins at Ephesus or Artemis - the latter being one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, or trekking, paragliding, mountain biking or sea-kayaking, Turkey has plenty to offer. . Nepal This third world country has much to offer in addition to the Himalayas, but they continue to be the biggest attraction. While infrastructure and development may not be high on Nepal’s list, there is nowhere else in the world where you can find independent trekking so easy to organize. Accommodation can be anywhere between USD5 and USD25, depending on the facilities you require, but it is cheaper if there’s a trek involved. Local food is cheap and tasty and should only cost you around USD2. Western food is generally only available in Kathmandu. Besides hiking up the Himalayas, and trekking across lush, fertile valleys, you could also go rafting, or explore deserted areas, national parks, and architectural sights.  . Costa Rica Although some consider Costa Rica to be a slightly more expensive destination, it is possible to backpack there on a budget. This gem of a country might be a popular haven, but there is still much to discover. Accommodation prices differ depending on where you are - they can go from USD5 in Arenal to double that Mal Pais, but a great way to save money is to couch surf if you’re up for bonding with the locals! Eating at the “sodas” or local restaurants is your cheapest option, at USD5 for a meal, as well as snacking at Musmanni, with pastries at less than USD1. Costa Rica has plenty to do, and while some activities like white water rafting and zip lining might set you back a bit, there are plenty of things to do that are easy on the wallet. Taking a coffee tour in Alajuela, visiting the animal sanctuary in Puerto Viejo, exploring Manuel Antonio National Park without a guide, and reveling in La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Irazu Volcano amongst others, or Corcovado National Park are just naming a few. .

  • The 10 Best Tech-Free Places to go in 2016

    Here are some great tech-free vacation spots and tech-free zones that are the ideal places for those of you who need a break from the stress of day-to-day life. Choose from some of the quietest places to head for a tech-free backpacking trip too. If you are obsessed with your smart phone, too attached to your phone, hear it buzzing even when it’s not, then yup! You need a break from technology online - a digital-detox, per se. So, we’ve put together a list of some stunning destinations that make it incredibly easy to unplug and unwind and to just connect with nature and the surroundings. Enjoy a tech-free holiday! 1. Tech-Free Mui Ne, Vietnam The first tech-free place on our list is the beautiful resort town of Mui Ne. Once a sleepy fishing town, Mui Ne has been transformed into a top tourist destination in Vietnam. A tropical retreat, Mui Ne is known for its spectacular beach. It offers the perfect conditions for wind and kite surfing, as well as swimming and other water sports. And if relaxing on the beach is what you’re after, Mui Ne is well suited for that too! While the many luxurious hotels located on the shore of the beach may offer wi-fi, trying to get a proper connection outdoors will be quite a task. This will make it even easier for you to just put down your digital device and enjoy your getaway. . 2. Tech-Free Black Forest, Germany While Germany has so many famous tech-free travel destinations, the Black Forest is probably one of its best holiday regions. The mountainous region is known for its slightly sinister looking evergreen forests; which were inspiration to some well-known fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, and for being the home of the cuckoo clock; which has been produced here since the 1700s. The magic and mystery of the destination, combined with its great weather and even more spectacular scenery and quiet countryside’s, make the Black Forest unique and an absolute must-visit. With some of the most beautiful sights in the world, in our humble opinion, you would be cuckoo to not go tech-free when here! . 3. Tech-Free Bali, Indonesia   The tech-free paradise island of Bali really needs no introduction whatsoever. Known for its picture-perfect white sand beaches, lush jungles, stunning rice terraces, beautiful luxury resorts and its fantastic tropical weather, Bali is one of the top honeymoon destinations in the world. Also offering a variety of water sports, and cultural and historical attractions, Bali has also fast become one of the best spots for a family vacation. There is no doubt in our minds that Bali’s natural beauty and exotic sites will make any tourist want to take a break from anything tech-related and just soak in all of its magic. . 4. Tech-Free Santorini, Greece Located in the Aegean is Greece’s most popular island, and probably one of the most popular islands in the world - Santorini. Famous for its quaint white-washed villages perched high on top of massive cliffs, stunning sunsets, picturesque views, ancient cities, numerous beautiful beaches and for its geological uniqueness, the volcanic island is a destination that is known to offer a lifetime of memories. With so much beauty surrounding your, we’re pretty sure you will most likely find yourself forgetting that you even own a smart phone or a laptop when in Santorini! . 5. Tech-Free Kravice Falls - Trebižat River, Bosnia and Herzegovina What better way to get over your technology addiction than to spend some time admiring one of the world’s most stunning natural attractions - the waterfalls of Kravice. On the Trebižat River, Kravice Falls is a natural phenomenon and a visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina is thus incomplete without a stop here. Apart from being visually exquisite, the idyllic attraction is frequented by locals and tourists alike, and has become a popular swimming spot. It is also the perfect location for a fun, yet relaxing family picnic. Together, Kravice Falls and Trebižat River, along with its picturesque surroundings will make you want to escape the real world for a while. . 6. Tech-Free Boracay, Philippines One of the Philippines’s top tech-free tourist attractions, the island of Boracay is magical and truly a dream travel destination. Featuring pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear azure water, along with picture perfect surroundings, the island destination is one of the best holiday spots on earth. The setting is so spectacular that you could go hours just relaxing on the breathtaking beach, or enjoying some of the many activities the island offers, without even thinking of picking up your digital device. . 7. Tech-Free Kathmandu, Nepal Nepal’s Kathmandu is a gem of a destination unlike any other. Vibrant and noisy, home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, a mixture of sights and smells and one of the best places in the world to disconnect from technology and reconnect with oneself and nature. The remote area will have limited cell and internet service, but we promise, the breathtaking views and Kathmandu’s fascinating culture and attractions will make you forget all about your tech-obsession in no time! . 8. Tech-Free Byron Bay, Australia The tech-free chic seaside town of Byron Bay is next on our list. While it may not be so off the grid, it is definitely one of a few destinations that is sure to convince techies to unplug and truly connect with their surroundings. It is home to several beautiful beaches which are frequented by surfers from around the world, and is known for its laidback lifestyle and stunning natural beauty. Surf to your heart’s content, explore the spectacular wilderness, go on a whale watching excursion, scuba dive and spot an abundance of marine life or just day dream on a picturesque beach, without the distraction of technology! . 9. Tech-Free Gili Islands - Lombok, Indonesia Sure to cast a spell on every visitor, the picture-perfect Gili Islands - Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, offer a remote island experience. Off the northwest coast of Lombok, the Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands that are popular amongst those hoping to enjoy a wireless retreat. While Gili Trawangan is the largest of the three islands and is more populated, Gili Meno and Gili Air are not as developed. So remote that there are no motorised vehicles on any of the islands, the Gili Islands are all about powdery white sand beaches, clear aquamarine water, spectacular sunsets, stunning scenery, and fresh seafood, and therefore ideal for visitors looking to experience true island lifestyle. . 10. Tech-Free Kiruna, Sweden Sweden’s most northernmost town, Kiruna is an extraordinary destination, totally perfect for those in need of a digital-detox. Running through the biggest non populated area in Europe, visitors to Kiruna can spend their days chasing the magical Northern Lights or marveling at the midnight sun, discovering magnificent untouched wilderness, learning about the fascinating Sami culture, experiencing the thrill of dog sledding, visiting the largest underground iron-ore mine in the world or marveling the Kebnekaise - Sweden’s highest mountain!   Check out more of HalalTrip’s Best 10 lists of 2016 here! . ...
