Who Are The Top Visitors in South Korea?

Did you know that South Korea is one of the leading tourist destinations in Asia? Over the past few decades, South Korea has experienced a significant surge in international tourism, attracting millions of visitors from all over the world. China and Japan were among the top visitors to South Korea.

South Korea attracts a large number of international tourists, and these two countries consistently contribute significantly to the total inbound tourist arrivals.
  1. China: has been the largest source of international tourists for South Korea for several years. The proximity between the two countries and improved diplomatic relations have facilitated an increase in Chinese tourists traveling to South Korea. Chinese tourists are drawn to South Korea for its culture, shopping, entertainment, and famous tourist attractions.
  2. Japan: is another major source of tourists to South Korea. The geographical proximity and cultural ties between the two nations make it convenient for Japanese travelers to visit South Korea. Similarly, South Korean tourists also frequently visit Japan due to the ease of travel between the two countries.
Apart from China and Japan, South Korea also receives tourists from various other countries, including the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asian nations. The Korean Wave (Hallyu) phenomenon, including K-pop music, Korean dramas, and Korean cosmetics, has significantly contributed to the popularity of South Korea as a tourist destination among global audiences, leading to a diverse range of international visitors.
