While travel is restricted across the world due to the pandemic, KTO organised the event for Vietnamese tourists to introduce Korean tourism, recall memories of trips to the RoK and offer a virtual tour to the RoK.

A booth introducing Korean tourism and culture is available with various activities for eight weeks. Visitors will have a chance to join mini-games to win prizes, wear traditional clothes, learn to make handicraft souvenirs and discover the country through virtual reality (VR) technology.

At weekends, special events will take place to introduce different themes of Korean tourism such as a photo exhibition, K-pop cover dance, a quiz show, Halloween and Pepero Day (Korean Valentine’s Day).

Activities organised during the 'Hi! Korea' program are designed for all ages and genders, according to Park Jong-sun, head of KTO Vietnam.

“Through the event, we expect to attract more Vietnamese tourists to come to the RoK when the pandemic ends,” he said.

“We want to have more Vietnamese tourists who are curious about the RoK. Vietnam is an important market to us, as always.”

The event will take place on the first floor of the Lotte Center, 54 Lieu Giai Street, Hanoi.
