Thailand is an Islam-friendly destination. Although the majority of Thai people are Buddhists, the country is also extremely diverse in terms of religions. There is a great number of muslim population in Thailand and muslim communities spread out all over the country. The south of Thailand, for example, has the biggest muslim population and is also known for amazing halal cuisine.
Halal, translated from Arabic to English means “allows”. Halal food consists of any food that is adhere to Islamic Sharia law.
In Thailand, you can know if the food is halal by spotting a Halalstandard symbol. To make halal food acceptable for not only muslim citizens but also everyone else needs products and ingredients high in nutritients and beneficial for health. The food goes through a sanitized cooking process according to the Islamic religious commandments.
Located in the south of Thailand, Krabi is not only a beautiful province surrounded by towering limestone mountains and pristine beaches but also a halal-friendly destination for muslims and all visitors. There is a large muslim community in Krabi and a beautiful mosque like the Masjid Al-Munawarah in Ao Nang. Visitors are guaranteed to be met with a variety of halal food options, from muslim street food vendors to many restaurants that have the halalstandard symbol.
Like Thailad overall, Bangkok is a diverse city where people of all religions live in harmony. Bangkok is one of those muslim-friendly places in the country where visitors can find endless halal food options and embrace the culture.
For example, the Yawa Mosque Community. It is the largest Yawa muslim community. There, visitors will find the beautiful Jawanese mosque and outstanding halal food options. It is one of the most popular islamic tourist attractions for those who want to learn about their culture, way of living, and of course, authentic Jawanese food. Their food options include yellow glutinous rice, Jawa Sweetie Box, and unique desserts.
Phuket is another halal-friendly destination in Thailand. The food scenes in Phuket are influenced by the large population of Thai muslims, allowing the province to have a wide range of halal food. There are many halal-friendly restaurants and halal street food you can enjoy.
Phuket’s halal food signature is probably Roti, a form of roti that is cooked with condensed milk, banana, and eggs. However, nowadays, you can add more toppings to the roti and custom order it to your liking.
The Roti Thaew Nam restaurant is one of the muslim-friendly restaurant we recommend. They offer various halal menus such as Chicken Massaman, mini pancakes, roti, and more.
These are just a few of the destinations where halal food is popular, but Thailand overall is muslim-friendly. It is one of the things that make Thailand such a fascinating country. People get to have their religious freedom despite the majority of the country’s population being Buddhist. Everyone of any relgion is welcome to live peacefully in harmony.
