SEOUL, July 14 (Korea Bizwire) – The Korea Tourism Organization held an event to celebrate the formation of “Wow Korea” supporters, a group of 40 from 15 Asian nations, including Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines, to promote tourism to Korea.
They will soon travel all over Korea and use social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter to create buzz about Korea and spread tourism information.
Yong Seon-Jung, KTO senior manager responsible for the Asia-Middle East region, said, “The foreign students and office workers living in Korea can be valuable assets for us to promote tourism to Korea to their home countries. As this will be done through their own personal word-of-mouth networks, we expect it to be more effective than official promotion tools.”
The Korea Tourism Organization will provide the supporter members opportunities to experience Korea’s little-known cultures while allowing them to stay in Korean homes.
