Indonesia has been named the sixth best Muslim-friendly holiday destination in the world, in a new survey released on Wednesday that listed Malaysia in the top position.
The world’s most populous Muslim nation tied with Morocco and Jordan with a score of 6.1 in a study conducted by Singapore-based Muslim travel consultancy Crescentrating — which ranked countries on how well they cater to the growing number of Muslim holiday makers seeking halal, or Islam-complaint, food and services.
It used criteria including the level of safety in a country, the ease of access to halal food and prayer facilities, and whether hotels cater to the needs of Muslim guests.
