It has connections to Hollywood, a unique pop scene, some mouth-drooling dishes AND it’s linked to our local celebrities – Korea has a fair bit to offer Aussie travellers but it’s this one feature that’s being utilised to sell the destination.

Simply, Korea is a great stopover destination for Australians heading to Europe.

That was the message last night at the Visit Korea Roadshow in Sydney, where operators promoted Korea’s convenient location and short break itineraries.

Representatives from SkiMax, Adventure World, MW Tours and CBT Holidays told KarryOn that Korea has a lot to offer, especially for those looking for a stopover outside the traditional Asian stopover destinations.

Pushing four-day itineraries, they said travellers can take in Korea’s various museums and temples as well as the popular Gyeongbokgung Palace and Korean Folk Village.

Meanwhile, the Roadshow also gave agents the opportunity to win various prizes, including two K-Travel Bus passes for two persons from the Visit Korea Committee; plus return economy air tickets from Sydney to Seoul from Korean Air and Asiana Airlines, which last year increased its services to Sydney.

The delegation will now travel to Auckland for a second event being held on 10 June.
