Information counters will be set up serving Vietnamese travelers at the Incheon and Gimhae airport and a number of tourist destinations in Seoul and Busan. Vietnamese tourists will be offered presents and discount coupons of 20-40 percent when buying tickets to well known tourism sites like Lotte World, Everland and Petite France, or when using certain services such as Eland Cruise or Songdo Marine Cable Car.

Meanwhile, tourists either free independent travelers or members of package tours organised by travel companies participating in the KTO’s summer campaign will be treated to various gifts.

Park Jong Sun, head of the KTO's representative office in Vietnam, said the impressive growth of Vietnamese visitors has made Vietnam one of key markets in the RoK tourism sector’s Southern Policy, hence the organisation of the campaign.

According to the organisation’s statistics, in the past five years, the number of Vietnamese tourists to the RoK grew about 34.1 percent annually on average, the highest among central and eastern Asian countries. In the first eight months of 2019, the RoK hosted about 370,000 Vietnamese visitors, up 25.7 percent on-year.
