Therefore it is fitting in terms of the tourism sector to see this as a potential opportunity. Opportunities from the development of halal tourism is the market potential of both domestic tourists (the majority of Indonesia's population is Muslim) and foreigners (especially the Middle East and Malaysia) this potential is promising to increase the economy in the tourism sector. Seeing these opportunities, Semarang is one of the cities in Central Java province that can be used as a halal tourist destination. Tourism is one of the sectors that plays an important role in the success of regional autonomy, which requires the development and utilization of tourism resources and potential in the area. The condition of Semarang City's high tourism potential with many tourism attractions should be able to make Semarang City a Halal Tourism Destination City and not just a Transit City. Moreover, there are many tourism industries both managed by the government and the private sector which generally have the duties and responsibilities of carrying out regional management affairs, especially tourist destinations.
