SEOUL, Jun. 27 (Korea Bizwire) — The 2019 Seoul Summer Sale for foreign tourists will kick off next month for a one-month run, the event’s organizer said Thursday.
The annual festival is designed to give foreign tourists visiting Seoul with remarkable shopping benefits by providing a variety of discount coupons that can be used in such stores as department stores, duty-free shops and supermarkets located in the capital city.
Coupons for restaurants, hotels, amusement parks and other entertainment activities are also available.
“This year, some 240 businesses and 1,180 shops, the largest-ever number, will participate in the Seoul Summer Sale,” the Seoul Tourism Organization said.
“We’ve expanded the number of participants especially in the fields of tours, activities and food and beverages this time in consideration of the increase of individual tourists,” the organization said.
