Vietnam – a beautiful Southeast Asian country, attracts a huge number of Muslim travelers to the bustling cities, lush mountains, and white sand beaches. All of the wonderful landscapes make the country an ideal romantic getaway. However, do you know how to discover the country in a Muslim friendly way? A Vietnam Muslim travel guide would be necessary. Let’s check out our guide to Muslim friendly travel in VN, hotels, foods, and tips.
In Vietnam, there are four seasons in a year: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. It is the subtropical climate in the north and tropical in the central and the south. The average temperature ranges from 22 to 27 degrees Celsius. The winter is very mild and the summer is hot and humid. In mountainous areas, the weather is dryer and cooler. The north experiences extremely cool winters.
The best time to visit the northern region of Vietnam is from March to May while the southern region is better visited from December to April.
In Vietnam, people don’t follow any dress code but wear casual clothes. If you don’t go to top-end hotels and luxurious restaurants, it is unnecessary to wear formal outfits and accessories. Generally, Vietnam is quite hot, so light clothes are the best option. But if you intend to visit the northern country in the winter, you’d better bring warm clothes. Silk items are especially available here so you can consider buying some to wear during your trip.
For those who will visit the rocky and mountainous areas, don’t forget to wear light strong shoes for long walking and climbing.
Halal travelers to Dalat should bring a light topcoat and a pullover or you can buy some woolen goods in the markets here.
