The growth of halal tourism industry in South Kalimantan seems to be left behind other provinces in Indonesia whereas this province is considered to have many potentials to develop the industry. This situation is exacerbated by the exclusion of this province as one of the mainstays of halal tourist destinations set by the Ministry of Tourism in 2015. This study attempts to reveal the potential of halal tourism in South Kalimantan, especially Banjarmasin as the capital of the province. The study is intended to explore the various halal tourist destinations available in Banjarmasin and to examine the prospects and challenges of developing the halal tourism industry in the city. The study was conducted with a qualitative approach and analyzed using the descriptive-analytic method. It is found that Banjarmasin has the splendor of religious, natural, historical as well as shopping and culinary tourist destinations. All this provide a big opportunity to attract both domestic and overseas visitors. Given this exceptional opportunity, a number of strategic and technical efforts are required to further increase the growth of this industry in Banjarmasin.
