- Halal tourism is developing fast in response to tourist demands for Islamic values-based tourism products and services. Halal tourism development is actually able to drive the local economy through the opportunities of small businesses and creative industries for local communities. Such tourism development in Indonesia is still lagging behind other countries due to the inaccurate understanding of halal tourism itself. This is an exploratory study that aims to provide an understanding of the concept of halal tourism through a review of various literatures and analysis through data reduction for general inferences. The results of the study show that the concept of halal tourism in the past perspective was exclusive, in the present perspective is inclusive, while in the future perspective is universal. In the future perspective, the concept of halal tourism has become a necessity for both Muslim and non-Muslim tourists to enjoy the local wisdom, enjoy the halal products, consume safe products, and respect socio-cultural values. The study offers a novelty, i.e. the mapping to understand the concept of halal tourism in the past, present, and future perspective.
