While enjoying their holiday, Muslim travelers have basic requirements that need to be met. At the top of the list is the need for Halal food; which can sometimes be challenging to locate when traveling to a non-Muslim country that you are not familiar with. While traveling, many Muslims require prayer facilities, whether it’s a masjid or a room in which they can pray, and for time to be made available for prayer within their trip schedule. If they are traveling during Ramadan, the fasting and payers schedule needs to be accommodated.
