VOV.VN - The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) hosted a Korean tourism promotion in Ho Chi Minh City on May 23.
According to KTO representatives, the Korean Government declared 2023 to 2024 as the Visit Korea Year, with a wide range of activities to take place, including travel packages and promotional campaigns using K-culture, in an effort to boost visitors numbers.
Joining the programme, visitors can expect huge discounts on flights, accommodations, shopping, and food. They are given the chance to explore K-culture all year round through K-pop concerts, e-sports, Korean food, and tours of cultural heritages, and more.
Vietnam ranks seventh in the Korean tourism market share, with 550,000 visitors travelling to the RoK in 2019.
Currently, there are many direct flights between the two countries, connecting major cities of the RoK to famous tourist destinations in Vietnam such as Da Nang, Phu Quoc, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City.
Most notably, the RoK boasts many popular destinations for Vietnamese tourists thanks to their delicious food, beautiful landscapes, and many entertainment activities.
