Muslim Friendly

According to Wikipedia, "The Malaysian constitution guarantees freedom of religion while making Islam the state religion. Approximately 61.3% of the population are practicing Islam." This makes Malaysia a favorite vacation destination for Gulf Arabs. The resort we stayed at was no different. Not only very Muslim friendly, but many Gulf Arabs were also there for the Eid vacation. A few unique things you would see at the resort that you might not see in the Florida Keys are:

A prayer house

A Kiblat on the ceiling pointing the direction toward Mecca

Modest swimwear
