The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced on 19th Feb that it will recruit workers living in Seoul who will receive support for the Seoul-type travel voucher project starting in March.
Seoul is offering travel opportunities to vulnerable people who give up their vacations at a cost to expanding their right to enjoy tourism and revitalize the sluggish domestic tourism market, the Seoul Metropolitan Government said.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said it will attract a total of 32.5 million tourists, including 13.5 million foreigners and 19 million Koreans, to spend 31.275 trillion won in Seoul this year.
To this end, the company plans to test-run “Online Seoul Tourist Station,” which introduces events and restaurants in Seoul by inviting popular YouTube creators, in March, and develop 20 travel courses that combine the must-see historical and cultural attractions of Seoul, Hallyu dramas, and restaurants.
Seoul will release 100,000 limited BTS special edition copies of the “Discover Seoul Pass” for foreigners, the world’s most popular tourism ambassador, and make them attend the opening ceremony of the 100th National Sports Festival.
Along with the inter-Korean peace mood, the DMZ, the JSA (Joint Security Area) tour program, and Seoul-Pyeongyang- Gaeseong exchange and cooperation projects will also be promoted.
