KTO in Pursuit of Sustainable Growth
Thank you for visiting the official website of the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO). It was created solely as a means of promoting Korea tourism and providing useful tourism information for those of you wishing to visit Korea. First established in 1962, KTO is a government-invested organization acting as the central force in developing Korea's tourism industry.
KTO's primary goal is to improve Korea's tourism environment and attract more foreign tourists to make Korea the world's leading travel destination. In order to achieve such goals, KTO has put tremendous effort in establishing a resort complex, improving tourist accommodations, and expanding the infrastructure of the tourism industry. Furthermore, KTO is greatly involved in developing tourism technology and tour packages, and is continuously involved in the areas of promotion and marketing. One of the KTOs recent projects has been to promote and market Hallyu (Korea Wave) movies, dramas, music, food, etc, and to develop tour packages related to Hallyu, or what is more widely known as "The Korean Wave".
KTO has 26 offices in 14 countries, and is working closely with the local tour industry to ensure tourism information is made directly available at our respective sites. For visitors to Korea, KTO provides various services including insightful tourist information, and promotional activities as well as regularly gauging customer feedback. KTO will continue to do its best in providing total satisfaction to visitors traveling to Korea and in shaping Korea to be the world’s most attractive travel destination and truly sparkling experience.
