Seoul City’s K-Travel Bus for foreign tourists is soon to travel around the country. The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced Sunday that it will operate bus travel tours across the country from this year. Since 2017, K-Travel Bus has been providing transportation, accommodation, tour guides and cultural experience programs to foreign tourists.
There are three types of tours including 4-day and 7-day tour. Previously, there had been only seven two-day programs visiting Seoul or other rural cities. These programs allow travelers to join halfway, which allows foreigners living in rural cities to sign up for a tour.
The four-day east program starts in Seoul and travels Daegu, North Gyeongsang Province and Gangwon Province. The four-day west program visits North Chungcheong, Gongju, South Jeolla and Changwon, departing from Seoul. The price is 550 dollars. The seven-day program includes all the cities in the four-day east and west programs at 990 dollars.
Each program includes cultural programs such as curling in Gangwon, Korean paper art in North Chungcheong, Baekje Dynasty’s royal costume try-on in Gongju and more.
This year’s K-Travel Bus tour starts on Wednesday with a two-day program visiting Gongju and North Chungcheong departing from Seoul.
