    The foreigner-exclusive ‘K-Travel Bus’ for free travels is set to be in operation nationwide. Developed to provide the charms of tourism of different regions of Korea to foreign tourists visiting Korea and to make visits to provincial cities more convenient for resident foreigners, K-Travel Bus of Seoul will expand its operations across the country starting this year.
    The ‘K-Travel Bus’ was developed under the supervision of Seoul to help resolve the problem of inconvenience (language, transportation, etc.) of foreign tourists during their provincial visits, and it has been in operation since 2017. It is a foreigner-exclusive bus travel package that offers exclusive buses, trustworthy lodging, carefully selected tourist destinations, and high-quality guide services.

    This year, the K-Travel Bus will add a 3 nights and 4 days eastern/western area package to the existing 1 night and 2 days Seoul-Provincial Area package (with visit to one city) as well as a 6 nights and 7 days nationwide package for a total of ten packages, with plans to reveal the charms hidden in every corner of the country.

    The packages reflected the preference of foreign tourists by including more than one specialized culture experience program of each region by course and also provided the opportunity for tourists to experience Korea’s culture with a variety of accommodations (hotels, resort complex, hanok villages, etc.).
