Many Muslim travelers who are unfamiliar with Vietnam may wonder if the country is safe and Muslim friendly. Vietnam is home to a vibrant Muslim community, with mosques and halal-certified restaurants easily accessible in major cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. While it may not offer as many amenities or convenience like the developed cities do, Vietnam is certainly welcoming to Muslims.
Hanoi is a captivating city that offers a wealth of experiences for Muslim travelers. Its rich history, vibrant culture, and stunning natural attractions make it a must-visit destination for anyone seeking a unique and enriching travel experience. With its growing number of Muslim-friendly accommodations, halal food options, and accessible transport options, Hanoi is an increasingly welcoming destination for Muslim tourists.
If you are a visitor coming to Hanoi, it is likely that you will reside in Hoan Kiem District near the Old Quarter. This is where most tourism activities are, and also where most tourists would congregate. It is by far, the most convenient and safest area to stay at. And since many of the top attractions in Hanoi are located in this vicinity, it is inevitable that many of the Halal restaurants in Hanoi would be found here as well.
Muslim travelers always seem to have the shorter end of the stick when it comes to enjoying Halal food abroad. In the case of Vietnam though, we would like to call the bluff on that. In fact, we would go as far as saying that besides the pork (and some other strange meat) dishes, there will be halal equivalents of almost every popular Vietnamese dish. In this article, we list down 10 of the most popular Halal food in Vietnam.
