West Sumatra has become one of the eleven halal tourist destinations in Indonesia with excellence in natural and cultural attractions and culinary tourism. The social interaction of tourists by utilizing social media has become social capital in bridging the effective flow of information in sharing tourist knowledge with other potential tourists. This study aims to analyze the effect of social capital on knowledge sharing intention and knowledge sharing behavior and examine the effect of knowledge sharing intention on knowledge sharing behavior. Research data were collected through an online questionnaire on 160 tourists who had visited West Sumatra. Data analysis was performed using the SEM-PLS method. The results showed that social capital had a positive and significant effect on knowledge sharing intention and knowledge sharing behavior. Furthermore, it was also found that knowledge sharing intention had a positive and significant effect on knowledge sharing behavior. This finding indicates the importance of the role of stakeholders such as tourism service providers and the government in facilitating the social interaction of tourists in spreading tourism information on social media in order that the potential of West Sumatra as a halal tourism destination in Indonesia can be optimized.
