- Praying mat
We know praying mat could use a lot of space because sometimes it tend to be thick when you fold or roll them so make sure you get yourself a travel size praying mat (yes, they do exist!) so you don’t have to use the pillow case, blanket or towel. However, you don’t have to worry about praying mat if you book your stay with us because we have already provided it in your room.
- Extra hijab
Trust us on this; we understand how uncomfortable it can get when you have to wear the same hijab for more than 10 hours; long haul flights. So why don’t you pack extra hijab that doesn’t need to be ironed and once you’ve arrived at your destination you can change and feel refreshed. You can also place your hijab pins in a Tic Tac or any small sized container to make sure you don’t lose them.
