    Indonesian Incentive Tourists Ride Seoul Public Bicycles

    100 employees of Indonesian insurance company AXA visited Seoul as part of an incentive trip from April 24 to 27, 2017. The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) held a Hangang Ttareungyi Tour at Yeouido Hangang Park for them.

    Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon rode the full course of 2.5 kilometers at the beautiful Hangang River on Ttareungyi, testifying to the possibility of Ttareungyi as a means for foreign tourists to navigate Seoul.

    In order to speed up the process of attracting MICE tourists to Seoul, the SMG will temporarily operate the Seoul Special Experience Program until the end of 2017. Employees of AXA are the first to participate in the program.
