This year’s event is particularly special because it coincides with the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games which will be held on 9–25 Feb 2018. This year’s theme for the Korea Grand Sale is “Special Winter Festival” and it focuses on promoting Korea’s cultural tourism in correlation to the winter Olympics. A variety of entertainment options based on themes such as “Winter sports,” “Nightlife,” “K-culture,” and “K-food” will be rolled out during the event period. In addition, international visitors will be able to receive privileges related to Korea’s winter and cultural attractions, including ski resorts, ice skating rinks, indoor snow parks, jjimjilbang (public bathhouses) and performances.

On top of that, international visitors will be able to benefit from perks that make their trip more convenient. Keep a lookout for the Korea Tour Card, a transportation card for foreigners, as well as 50% discounts on the Hands-Free Service, a baggage storage and delivery platform that’ll allow you to travel light. There will also be a Tourist Travel Centre that will be popping up in major tourist attractions and regional festivals near Olympic venues within Gangwon-do, providing convenient services such as language interpretation.

If you don’t have a Korea trip planned yet, you might just want to squeeze it in.
