Recently the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has just launched an application named “Thailand Muslim Friendly Application”. This application is built for Muslim visitors who are going to visit Thailand.
The application is free and available on iOS and Android. From the news, this application is designed to help Muslim visitors finding Masjids, Halal restaurants, hotels, shopping centers with prayer rooms, and other important facilities around Thailand.
I have downloaded this application and played around. I found out that the application is now available in 2 languages: Thai and English. There are 5 main sections in the application: Masjids, Halal Foods, News, Offline Guidebook, and My Favorite.
In Masjids section, there are a list of masjids around the country and the ones that are close to my current location. The location and map are also available. In Halal Foods section, there are a list of Halal restaurants in the country and the ones that are close to my current location. Same as Masjids, the location and map are also available. There is still nothing much in the News section. The Offline Guidebook gives the information about Halal restaurants in Thailand.
I could not find the information about hotels and shopping centers. It would be good if this information is available. I think the application is still very new and more information, languages, and features will be added in the future. If you are a Muslim and are about to visit Thailand, download this application. I believe it is useful, more or less.
