SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Korea Tourism Organization introduced a new service that recommends tourist spots based on big data analysis.
Travel Forecast provides recommendations on customized tourist destinations and offers information on traffic conditions, estimated daily number of tourists and weather forecasts.
Users can select their destinations, enter personal travel preferences such as date of departure, location and type of visit based on various data related to traffic conditions and social media.
The service currently offers data for 1,000 locations, with plans to add up to 1,000 more locations by the end of this year.
“We believe that this service will allow people to plan a safe personalized trip on a less congested day as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on,” said government officials.
