Seoul launches limited edition of the Discover Seoul Pass

Foreign tourists will get free admission or discounts at 96 attractions in Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province, with a special travel card.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government said Monday it will issue 6,000 limited versions of the Discover Seoul Pass on Tuesday.

The travel ticket exclusively for foreigners, introduced by Seoul City in July 2016, has given free access to 36 tourist sites and discounts for 30 concert halls, beauty parlors and hallyu-related venues in the capital city only, plus transportation card function.

However, the special edition card, made in collaboration with tourist organizations of Gyeonggi Province and Incheon, will allow visits to 30 more spots in the capital region, including Everland and the Korean Folk Village in Yongin and Ara Waterway Cruise.

The promotion is designed to encourage foreign tourists to visit regions other than Seoul ― 78.8 percent of tourists last year traveled only in Seoul, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

“There is the possibility for other special editions in cooperation with other municipalities. We also hope we can launch a Seoul-Pyongyang Pass one day,” a city official said.
