Jeju Tourism eyes India market

Nov 05, 2018

Jeju Tourism Organisation hopes to increase Indian tourist numbers to the island (which is part of South Korea) from the current 2400 visitors to 10,000. Speaking at a recent roadshow in Mumbai, Park Hong Bai, president, Jeju Tourism Organisation said, “In 2017 we saw around 2400 tourist arrivals from India. India is one of the 174 countries that do not need a visa to visit Jeju. So that makes it very attractive and we are hoping to increase that number to at least 10,000 with support from the travel trade and media. Jeju is a volcanic island and we offer lots of nature, heritage, UNESCO World Heritage Sites which is sure to attract Indians. Indians can also combine Jeju with their visits to Hong Kong or China. We have good connectivity from Hong Kong, China, Kuala Lumpur, Japan and even Bangkok.”
