Festival offers array of travel packages to South Korea

Take a Hanbok tour around N Seoul Tower, which was designed around the theme of the Joseon dynasty. The tower, also called Namsan Seoul Tower, is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul.

THE appetite for all things Korean has only heightened in recent times and Korea Tourism Organisation is ready to satiate that hunger with the long-awaited Korea Festival 2021.

The event is taking place at Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur until Oct 24.

The festival promises to get travellers back into the groove of making travel plans to South Korea by offering attractive travel packages and fantastic prizes, as well as advice on travelling safely in pandemic times.

Visitors to the event will also enjoy activities such as games and travel talk shows.

There will be plenty of merchandise, worth up to RM25,000, including a new Samsung Z Flip3 phone, which will be given away during lucky draw sessions.

“We are truly optimistic about travelling again as the world slowly opens up in a safe and cautious manner, with more travellers fully vaccinated as well as governments being better prepared,” said Korea Tourism Organisation managing director Yang Kyung Soo.

“People are itching to travel again and there is no reason why you should not start planning your vacation.

“Along with our partners, we have curated a variety of attractive travel packages to meet the preference of discerning travellers who cannot wait to explore South Korea.”

From vibrant fashionable cities to the mountaintops and from Cherry Blossom Festival to island exploration, the festival will give every fan of all things Korean the chance to seize some attractive offerings at special rates:

> Six days/eight days Dynamic Korea that covers the city and Nami Island visit (from RM2,999);

> For the adventurous traveller, the six-night Seoul, Gangwon, Pyeongchang and Ski Fun package will take you from the city to the mountainous, forested areas of Gangwon Province (from RM4,688);

> For the romantic in you, the six-night Spring Beauty of Korea and Jeju Island package will get you falling in love again as you take part in the Cherry Blossom Festival (RM4,188);
