If you are looking for an all-in-one holiday, how about taking a trip to a country with beautiful nature sites, cultural heritage spots and delicious, authentic cuisine? Home to an easily mispronounced dish, pho, Vietnam is a country every Muslim traveller should visit at least once in their lifetime!

 

Vietnam has a great balance of natural and historical sites, most of which revolves around its deep history. If this is your first Vietnam trip, you will want to know where you can fly to from Vietnam! There are three main international airports in Vietnam - Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City in the south, Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi in the north and Da Nang International Airport in central Vietnam.

 

Vietnam has around 40 Masjid (mosques) and 25 suraos (smaller than mosques). The largest mosque was opened in January 2006 in Xuan Loc, Dong Nai Province with its construction partially funded by donations from Saudi Arabia. The oldest one was built in 1750 in An Giang province, in the south of Vietnam.

 

There is one mosque in Hanoi, situated at 12 Hang Luoc Street, Hoan Kiem District. There are many in Ho Chi Minh City and southern provinces of Vietnam.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit North Vietnam would be either from March to May or from September to November to experience the clear blue skies and pleasant temperatures.

However, Vietnam is a year-round destination, and its weather can be split into tropical and temperate zones. While South Vietnam doesn't see any drastic changes in the weather, North Vietnam experiences distinct seasonal variations.

What to See, Eat and Do ?

Hanoi

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is a modern city filled with heritage sites. A city full of ancient monuments, temples and colonial architecture, Hanoi is a great city to kickstart your trip.

 

What is a great way to kick off your trip to Vietnam? Learning the history of Vietnam of course! Pay a trip to the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long located in Quan Thanh and capture great photos of this UNESCO World Heritage site.

 

Just a stone’s throw away is the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s most iconic leader. The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is also the most visited attraction in Hanoi. End off your day with a trip to Dong Xuan Market. Find reasonably priced fresh produce, souvenirs, accessories and even electronics in Hanoi’s largest indoor market

Ha Long

Hạ Long Bay, in northeast Vietnam, is known for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests.

 

Begin your day early with a full-day trip to Ha Long Bay. It is a 4-hour drive from Hanoi’s city centre.

 

Declared a World Heritage site in 1994, Ha Long Bay is a tourist hotspot especially for nature lovers. There are many things to do while you are there, namely scuba-diving and rock-climbing. If you are not an adrenaline junkie, you may opt to just simply relax and enjoy the beauty of the limestone rock formations and the pristine ocean on a cruise ship. Return to Hanoi after a long day out, end your day with a delicious, Halal-certified Indian dinner at Nan N Kabab located along Xuan Dieu Street.

Ho Chi Minh City

Take a 2-hour domestic flight from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh city or if you are on the adventurous side, a 31-hour train ride on the Vietnam Railway towards Saigon Railway Station. Both the airport and train station is located in Ho Chi Minh's city centre!

 

Begin your journey around Ho Chi Minh City with a trip to Ho Chi Minh City Museum (HCMC Museum) in Ben Thanh to learn the history of this heritage-filled city. Built in 1885, the architecture of HCMC Museum tells the story of Vietnam’s history.

 

For lunch, grab an appetising meal at The Daun Restaurant, a restaurant specialising in Halal Vietnamese cuisine. After lunch, make your way towards Vo Van Tan Road.

Cu Chi Tunnels

Start your day early as you head to Cu Chi Tunnels with a tour bus. Walk in the shoes of a Vietnamese soldier back in 1948 as you go through this section of a war museum in Ho Chi Minh.

 

We provide Muslim-friendly tour services in Vietnam including tours to and around Cu Chi Tunnels.

 

The site of the underground tunnels, which played a vital role in Vietnam’s long history, is now a tourist attraction. Do be warned though, this is not exactly for the claustrophobic but it's an experience unlike any other!

Mekong

Begin your day early as you head over to Mekong River Delta via tour bus. Tour agencies in Ho Chi Minh City provide one-day tour services to and around Mekong.

 

Vietnam’s source of agricultural income, the Mekong River Delta is filled with paddy fields and swamplands. Take a ride on a boat down the Mekong River to have an experience like no other as you pass by farmers and vendors selling their catch or harvest along the river banks or on their boats.

 

Once you're done with the tour, returning to Ho Chi Minh City and head over to Thanh Duong Jamiul Islamiyah mosque for your evening prayers.

Shopping at Binh Tay

Start your day with an amazing brunch at Saigon Green House, located in the Ben Thanh vicinity. Saigon Green House is a Halal-certified restaurant which serves fusion Vietnamese-Malaysian cuisine.

 

After brunch, hop on a bus from Ben Thanh to Cholon, Vietnam’s Chinatown. Located in the heart of Cholon is Binh Tay Market. Find anything and everything in this “old-school” style market.

 

Find everything from snacks to groceries, shoes and clothes at really affordable prices. What a way to end your trip, spending your last few Vietnamese Dong on snacks and souvenirs at Binh Tay Market.

Food in Vietnam

 

Vietnam has been welcoming more and more visitors from all over the world, including Muslim travelers, the number of halal restaurants has increased much in recent years not only in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh city but also in central provinces like Nha Trang, Hoi An, Phan Thiet, Da Nang.

 

As such, choosing a Halal food and restaurant in Vietnam is no longer challenging. From upscale to mid-range ones, Vietnam has it all.
