Muslim friendly tourism concept

Muslim-friendly tourism is different from religious tourism. The mention of tourism refers to the concept of providing supporting facilities for Muslim tourists to fulfill their needs and obligations. For example, the availability of places of worship, ablution places, and clean toilets. Providing halal food in tour activities is also an important point in this tour.

"So there is a need for facilitation in all places where Muslim tourist activities pass. Starting from airports, stations, Harbor, to the bus terminal. Then in hotels or accommodation, in places to eat, and in spas because this has become a necessity too.

Facilities can be for everyone

Meanwhile, emphasizing that this tourism is different from religious tourism, the Director of Product Industry Halal KNEKS Afdhal Aliasar told the media that the facilities were inclusive or could be enjoyed by everyone.

This means that not only Muslims can enjoy this service, but also all other tourists. "Of course we need to remember that halal food, cleanliness and all these things are inclusive. "Not only for Muslim travelers, but everyone, whoever really needs it and can enjoy it well," he explained.

It is different from religious tourism because in this case there are no privileges for Muslims. This was explained by Deputy for Tourism Products and Activities Organizer Baparekraf Rizki Handayani.

“So it's not Grouping. This is indeed a good thing throughout Indonesia and it is available. Not looking at what makes Muslim tourists special or anything. "It's okay if you don't want to prepare, but then there will be a lack of comfort for Muslim tourists when traveling because of the unavailability (of facilities)," he explained. (y)
