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.
Many hotels in Hanoi have claimed to be Muslim friendly. The fact of the matter is, not all of them actually observe Muslim practices. This may result in very awkward and uncomfortable situations for Muslims traveling to Vietnam. Just as we did with our research on Affordable Muslim Friendly hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Colours of Vietnam reached out directly to these hotels, to determine if they do indeed comply with these observances.
