KTO brings the spotlight on new destinations through two webinars

Using the opportunity to educate the Indian travel trade about the varied facets of South Korea, Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) in association with TravelBiz Monitor organised the second edition of South Korea Webinar Series 2022 on March 17 and 22, respectively.

The first webinar was focused on Incheon, which is a city in South Korea on the coast directly to the west of Seoul. Incheon is South Korea’s largest airport and is also known as the land of wellness and healing. Incheon stands out as a healing city that blends history and modernity harmoniously. Travellers can enjoy a relaxing spa and enjoy their stay.


Another attraction of Incheon is The Sorae Ecology Park, it was once a facility used to produce salt until 1996. In May 2009, it was revived as a biological stop. This stop has a salt field, mud level, and wetland as the bed of different living animals and natural surroundings for transitory winged animals; one can explore the park by walking and exploring its wooden windmills.
Guests can also choose a temple stay option along with staying in a luxury hotel.
Art-tainment Resort Paradise City is the first Korean style resort complex in Northeast Asia combining multi-purpose hospitality and entertainment facilities such as a hotel, casino, convention, shopping, art gallery, spa, club, carnival and performance. Paradise City offers the most exciting entertainment one can ever experience.

The second webinar in the series introduced the agents to the Gangwon Province and FNFKorea Travel & DMC.

The Gangwon Province is home to 18 cities and counties with tourism characteristics. There are convenient transportation services one can use to reach Gangwon-do from the airport. Its key highlights are wellness, activities, venues, K-Wave, and SNS Hot Place.

Hongcheon is a mountain village good for one to escape from the city buzz, with no access to mobile connectivity. In Jeongseon, Park Roche Resort & Wellness allows guests to undertake meditation therapies and trekking. The High 1 Resort HAO Program offers high-end wellness programme, and Osaek Greenyark Hotel is another fascinating property for wellness enthusiasts. The Donghae Mureung Health Forest offers heat therapy with its salt themed sauna.

As far as activities are concerned, one can enjoy zip wire, curling game and surfing in Gangwon Province.

The Museum SAN, located in Wonju, focuses on art and nature. Oak Valley is a purpose-built resort that houses the museum which stretches 700 metres along a mountain top. At Jeonggangwon, one can experience making of traditional food.
