Halal Travel

Turkey emerges on top of halal list
October 2017 601

Turkey attained the highest score among 130 destinations included in the Global Muslim Travel Index, based on criteria regarding the most convenient transportation infrastructure, according to the annual report published by MasterCard and Crescent Rating. The report was centred on the travel preferences of Muslim tourists across 130 destinations worldwide and evaluated several criteria including ease of transportation, dining options, halal assurance, access to prayer areas and affordable prices.

Countries like Singapore, Thailand and the U.K., which do not have a Muslim majority in terms of their population, followed the top nine countries on the list. Although the OIC countries are primarily preferred by Muslim tourists, non-OIC destinations have moved up in index rankings as they continue to adapt their services to appeal to the Muslim travel market.
