Tourists who visited Korea during Korea Grand Sale 2017.

The Visit Korea Committee provides the Top 30 Recommended Privileges and Theme Events during Korea Grand Sale 2019 scheduled for Jan. 17 to Feb. 28, 2019.

Next year’s Korea Grand Sale is expected to come with various promotion events and discount opportunities with more airlines and lodging service providers taking part. For example, Jin Air tickets will be discounted by up to 85% and Jeju Air tickets will be discounted by up to 80%. In addition, Vivaldi Park and Daemyung Resort tickets will be discounted by 60% to 75%, a 55% to 75% discount will be applied to Ramada Encore Haeundae tickets, and Best Western Premier Seoul Garden Hotel will be available at half price.

Also, buy one and get one free will be available in seven K-Travel bus routes (Daegu City, Gangwon Province, North Gyeongsang Province, South Jeolla Province, Chungcheong Province, Changwon City and Ganghwa County). These special offers are expected to attract a large number of inbound tourists this winter, leading to a regional tourism boom.

The Korea Grand Sale celebrates its 10th anniversary next year. Korea Grand Sale 2019 is expected to be different from the previous events in many respects. For instance, global free tour activity platform KLOOK will join the event as a promoter for special offers and online shopping promotions will be diversified at Kmall24, which is the Korea International Trade Association’s online mall for global shopping that has been visited by customers in over 70 countries. K-Goods boxes and free airline tickets will be available there during Korea Grand Sale 2019.
