The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Tourism Development Institute announced that they will launch virtual “K-tour Top 10” themed excursions to enable people to experience Korea’s beautiful tourist attractions online and learn their stories.

The virtual tours feature local experts guiding viewers through videos of each destination. K-tour Top 10 trips are available for tourists abroad (nine with English narration). The tour programs in English will be provided until 20 March.

The nine virtual English-narrated tours are intended for those unable to visit Korea in person because of the COVID-19 pandemic and will introduce attractive tourist spots and local delicacies. The detailed itineraries provided will greatly help those who are able to actually travel to Korea after the pandemic. To purchase a tour, visit global online travel platforms, or and search “Korea Virtual Tour.” Each tour is priced around US$10.
