These packages cater to the specific needs and preferences of Muslim travelers, making it easier for them to plan and enjoy their trips.

Countries with a large number of Muslims include: Saudi Arabia, UAE, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Türkiye.

Best itinerary for Halal tours in Hanoi



Vietnam is currently an attractive destination for Muslim tourists. However, tourist destinations related to Islamic culture are still quite limited. Below is a specific schedule to visit Halal tours in Hanoi in one session, which many tourists consider to be the best itinerary:

Al-Noor Mosque

The first place on that journey is Al-Noor Mosque. This is the largest mosque in Vietnam built in 1970. The mosque has an Islamic style architectural design with special patterns and decorative details. Currently, Al-Noor is the only mosque in Hanoi and the North. Every day, there are still believers who come here to pray, but the largest number will be on Friday and it is also a meeting place for the Muslim community.

Al-Noor Mosque can accommodate about 200 people to pray, including the outside yard, which is 300 people. The ambassadors who come here are equal to other Muslims. Those who arrive early will be allowed to enter the inner hall to pray, while those who arrive late must accept the ceremony outside.

Vietnam Museum of Islamic Culture

After visiting Al-Noor Mosque, visitors will go to the next stop on the Halal tour which is the Vietnam Museum of Islamic Culture. This place can help visitors easily visualize the unique culture, symbols, history and development of Islam.

Notes when visiting the mosque

During a visit to mosques, in addition to polite attire, visitors always remember other important issues. To have a smooth Halal tour, guests should know a few notes to avoid troublesome, offensive actions as well as respectful attitudes from people in the mosque:

  • Shoes must be removed before entering the mosque. Absolutely do not walk back and forth in front of believers when they are performing prayers.
  • Female tourists need to choose polite, discreet outfits that do not hug the body and do not reveal any skin on the body. Women especially need to cover their hair when entering the mosque.
  • Male visitors should wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and not tight-fitting clothing.
  • Especially when traveling to Muslim countries, in mosques or mosques, tourists are absolutely not allowed to touch the Koran or unknown objects in the church.
  • Taking photos while visiting a mosque also requires dexterity and careful observation. If there is a place where photography is prohibited, visitors must strictly comply. It is your respect for Muslim culture, showing that you are polite and knowledgeable.


The above-mentioned places in Halal tours in Hanoi are not only unique architectural works but also carry profound spiritual, cultural, and historical values ​​of a religion. Although the number of attractions is limited to give tourists more choices, our government also has policies to attract more Halal tourists.

Each location has its own stories and unique characteristics that other religions do not have. Developing Halal tourism in Hanoi is also a way to promote the trend of Halal tours with Muslims in Vietnam and international tourists. In addition, this also stimulates demand for the tourism industry to develop, increase GDP and promote part of Vietnam's cultural identity.

Hope the above information is useful to tourists who are interested in Halal tours in Hanoi. Don't forget to follow Impress travel's Website and Facebook to learn more interesting information about tourism in general and Muslim travel in particular.
