Korea Tourism Organization has embarked on the
'K-Smile' campaign in line with the promotion of the successful hosting
of the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
The campaign is a nationwide project involving the
assistance of all citizens to spread the spirit of a warm welcome. The
campaign will begin in restaurants, shopping malls, accommodation and other
places most frequently visited by foreign tourists.
K-smile will operate with the slogan 'Korea smiles and
the world smiles back' to greet foreign tourists with warm hospitality whilst
in Korea and to increase their enjoyment of the country with the hope of
encouraging tourists to return again and again.
Korea is attracting more Australians to its ski
resorts in recent years and no doubt the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Korea
will draw more interest from skiers, snowboarders and winter enthusiasts.
Korea's best ski resorts are on the east coast of
Korea with popular ski resorts like Yongpyong and Alpensia only three hours
from the capital city, Seoul by ski shuttle bus. Yongpyong and Alpensia
are the main venues for the 2018 Winter Olympics with all venues within thirty
minutes of Alpensia Sports Park.
