* The “K-tour Top 10” is a themed tour program that the MCST began offering in 2017 to introduce various Korean tourist attractions to people in Korea and overseas. The 39 cities selected for the program are grouped into 10 regions based on unique themes and stories.
The ten virtual travel destinations are Inchoen, Gangneung, Mungyoeng, Busan, Gyeongju, Yeosu, Jeonju, Damyang, Buyeo, and Danyang.
Virtual tour participants can enjoy the dynamic local scenes from top-rated tourist attractions to local foods through video footages while aided by real time in-depth explanation of the tour hosts.
