With its historical, cultural and local richness, culinary culture, border town characteristic, private and public sector investments and universities, Gaziantep bears an important efficiency in terms of tourism. In parallel with the economic development of the city, industrial tourism is in demand nowadays. However, Gaziantep tries hard to be an important tourism destination with its cultural potential besides industrial tourism.

In this regard, "industrial tourism", "culture tourism", "health tourism", "congress and fair tourism", "gastronomy tourism" and "university tourism" are the main tourism models in Gaziantep. Institutions and corporations of Gaziantep contribute to the development of culture, arts and tourism besides development of industry and trade. In this context, local administrations, Professional chambers, institutions and companies have put their signatures under various studies on tourism.

As a result of such studies, the cultural texture of Gaziantep rejuvenates; the number of museums and accommodation facilities increases day by day; the number fair and congress organisations increases; and transportation facilities enhance. Moreover, the city is on the way to be a diplomatic centre with official consulates of Syria and Iraq and many honorary consulates.
