Understanding and respecting the unique needs and preferences of
different traveller demographics is crucial for fostering an inclusive
and enriching travel experience. With this in mind, Tourism Western
Australia (TWA) has taken a significant step forward in promoting
diversity and inclusivity in the world of travel with the launch of
their new Muslim Travel Guide.
Australia's largest state, Western Australia, is renowned for its
awe-inspiring natural landscapes, vibrant Aboriginal culture, and
burgeoning food scene. It's a destination that beckons travellers from
around the world. However, recognising that a substantial portion of the
global population identifies as Muslim, TWA has made it a priority to
cater to the unique requirements of Muslim travellers, making their
exploration of this vast state as seamless as possible.
The new Muslim Travel Guide serves as a comprehensive directory,
offering valuable information on Halal eateries, mosques, and
Muslim-friendly spaces and facilities across Western Australia. This
resource is available in both English and Malay, making it accessible to
a broader range of travellers.
With nearly a quarter of the world's population adhering to Islam,
and this number growing at a faster rate than non-Muslim populations,
it's evident that there's a significant need for dedicated travel guides
that provide essential information and assurance to Muslim travelers.
These guides help travellers observe their faith while on the road,
without the worry of compromising their beliefs.
Ava Ang, Tourism Western Australia Country Manager for Singapore and
Malaysia, explains, "Western Australia is a diverse and inclusive state
that offers a warm welcome for the growing number of Muslim travellers
in the region. We know that Muslims need to plan their trips carefully,
so this guide was designed to take the hard work out and provide an easy
reference tool that addresses their particular preferences and needs,
while also inspiring them to explore the wonders of the state."
The Muslim Travel Guide goes beyond just listing Halal eateries and
mosques. It serves as an indispensable resource for travellers,
regardless of their religious background. This guide offers a wealth of
comprehensive information, including travel guidelines ranging from
arrivals to driving and public transportation. It ensures that
travellers, whether Muslim or non-Muslim, have access to vital
information for a smooth and well-prepared travel experience.
Furthermore, the guide provides a detailed listing of Halal and
Muslim-friendly eateries, ensuring that travelers can savor the diverse
culinary delights that Western Australia has to offer while adhering to
their dietary preferences. It also includes a separate directory of
mosques and musolla, making it easier for Muslim travelers to find
places of worship during their journey.
