The Republic of Korea’s Tourism Organisation (KTO) held a programme in Hanoi on November 12 to introduce the country’s beauty, particularly in winter, along with attractive tourism products to Vietnamese tourists.
Visiting the RoK at this time, tourists can enjoy snow-capped mountains and forests or go skiing and ice skating. They can join in winter festivals, fish on ice or light lanterns on islands.
This is one of the large-scale promotion campaigns of the year to popularise the Northeast Asian country’s beauty in winter and encourage travel agencies to sell more tours to the RoK in this season.
A campaign with various activities is being implemented by KTO to lure Vietnamese tourists to the country.
Vietnam is considered a potential market for RoK tourism. Since the beginning of this year, some 108,000 Vietnamese tourists have visited the country, an increase of 8 percent from a year earlier.
