Compiled by Jeju Tourism Association and HalalTrip, the comprehensive 12-page guide is a useful resource for every Muslim tourist as it lists out the various facilities that are available on the island for Muslims – such as the best Halal restaurants and nearby prayer facilities – as well as the must-see attractions and activities that are on offer.

This allows travellers to experience ‘Real Maldives’ and its friendliness and hospitality – a side of the country that is often overlooked due to its strong focus on secluded luxury.
