Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)

Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) was established in 1962. It is a Korean government-owned organization acting as the central force in developing Korea’s tourism industry. The organization has focused primarily on improving Korea’s tourism environment and promoting Korea as the world’s leading travel destination.

KTO is also largely involved in the innovation of new tour packages, while constantly stimulating the Korean tourism industry via promotions and marketing.

Recently KTO has been focusing on the theme of Hallyu (Korean Wave) movies, dramas, music and food, which has led to the development of a series of Hallyu “Korean Wave” tour packages.

KTO’s headquarters is located in Jung-gu, Seoul. The organization has 27 overseas offices in Asia, America, Europe and Oceania.
