[Winner List] Who is Your Favorite KTO Malaysia Social Media Influencer of 2018

2018 was a fun and fruitful year for Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) Malaysia. We got plenty of chances to collaborate with many amazing social media influencers in promoting Korea as the best holiday destination. We really appreciate those social media influencers who went for the extra mile beyond creating interesting and informative contents about traveling in Korea, in which they also responded to their fans’ inquiries about Korea’s attractions that they visited, promoted ongoing KTO promotions and events like the DKYW coupon booklet, shared KTO Malaysia website with their fans and friends, and many lovely efforts that went under the radar of KTO.


As a way to show our gratitude and recognition to our valuable partners, we are holding this engaging contest where you can vote for your favorite KTO Malaysia Social Media Influencer of 2018 and stand a chance to win a pair of return flight ticket to Korea. The winner of KTO Malaysia Social Media Influencer of 2018, on the other hand, will win a 1-year collaboration contract with KTO Malaysia including a sponsored trip to Korea. Let’s check out the list of the nominated social media influencers by KTO Malaysia Managing Director below! Spend some time going through their YouTube videos or written blog and then vote!


*A note to all the nominated social media influencers: Keep up the good work and passion! Looking forward to seeing more interesting contents from you and wishing you a new year filled with blessings, love and more collaboration opportunities from all over the world.
