#AkudanKorea: Korea Tourism Organization’s ‘one-stop shop’ for Indonesian solo travelers

ARE YOU an Indonesian solo traveler seeking a memorable South Korean holiday? Then you’re in luck!

To better provide for solo travelers who want to visit the popular destination, Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) Jakarta has launched #AkudanKorea (which means “Korea and I”).

Through the campaign, KTO Jakarta intends to highly the services and facilities that have been developed to encourage travelers, particularly solo travelers, to explore the best destinations in South Korea.

The country has been getting a lot of traction in the media as of late due to the recent 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang and the 2018 inter-Korean summit.

So it’s befitting that KTO Jakarta is using the buzz as leverage to launch #AkudanKorea and push tourism numbers to go the extra mile.

And as it stands, South Korea was voted one of the best, friendliest and safest places to travel alone in Asia by Skyscanner.

But unbeknownst to many, the country has a lot more surprises up its sleeve than just its burgeoning Korean entertainment industry.

From streets filled with its homegrown skincare/cosmetic brands to Korean drama shooting locations, as well as lush natural landscapes that change with every season to centuries-old historical sites, and not forgetting the uniquely South Korean food places, the country has it all.

Along with the launch of #AkudanKorea, KTO Jakarta also unveiled a website to appeal to solo travelers who do not wish to rely on tour guides to explore South Korea.

It contains a detailed event schedule, ongoing promotions and airline deals, tourist recommendations, and a neat #AkudanKorea photo challenge.

Currently, the website is highlighting promotional flights from Korean Airlines, Asiana Airlines, and Garuda Indonesia. So it’s really a “one-stop shop” for curious solo travelers.
