Malaysia definitely tops the rankings of top halal friendly destinations in the world. Halal holidays in Malaysia is a unique experience for Muslim tourists given the country’s incomparable historical and cultural heritage as well as their ‘expertise’ in halal hospitality.
Such is the zeal of the Malaysian government that they created a special service dedicated to halal tourism. And no wonder, given that Malaysia is one of the pioneers in halal hospitality. It is the country that came up with the ‘halal certification’ back in 1974, in an effort of the Research Centre for the Islamic Affairs Division to define halal criteria in food products.
