Abstract

This paper discusses the availability and viability of halal sites and routes in Ethiopia. Tourism development requires detailed information about potential tourism resources that helps developers and decision-makers. Accordingly, inventorying the existing actual and potential tourism resources must be the first step to assess the tourism potential of a destination. The main aims of this paper are to identify and discuss cultural and natural visitor attractions that will entice halal conscious visitors and to propose halal tourism routes based on these resources stretched from the center to different parts of Ethiopia. The study employed qualitative methodologies namely interviews, focus group discussion, and field observations. GIS technology was also widely used to identify, locate visitor attractions and plot the spatial interconnection between these attractions. Analysis of the data confirms that Ethiopia has abundant potential tourism resources to develop Halal Tourism. These resources mainly consist of Islamic heritage and natural resources. After the identification of the available tourism resources, five potential halal tourism routes were proposed.
