he study was ambitious to report the progression of ?Halal Tourism? in different countries including Muslim majority countries and non-Muslim majority countries around the world. It was carried out by review and reference to the previous study about Halal tourism from researchers from different countries. News from official tourism website, announcement on newspaper and magazine also contributed to the latest development of Halal tourism in various counties. In most Muslim majority countries, the effort was made by investing in development of Muslim friendly travel environment such as increasing the number of in Halal certified restaurant, the number of shariah compliance hotel, the number of prayer facilities, and enhancing the local Muslim culture. For non-Muslim countries, awareness of the concept of ?Halal? was been educated to the non-Muslim and the governments are more concern about the needs of Muslim travelers compared to 10 years ago. However, the mutual benefits of both Muslim and non-Muslim travelers must be taken care despite the speedy progression of Halal tourism in order to ensure the sustainability of this industry. To dates, there is no report in details about this new trend of tourism that includes a wide range of different countries. This study was hoped to be able to trigger more study on this field in order to enhance the comprehensiveness of Halal tourism around the world.
