The Korea Travel Fair is a one-stop shop for all your travel and Hallyu needs. You can speak to regional tourism organisations to discover the diverse array of destinations in Korea. South Korea has so much more to explore aside from Seoul. Tourism organisations from Jeju, Gwangju, Busan, Gangwon, and other regions will be available to sate your curiosity about lesser-known gems outside the capital. 

Travel agencies such as Chan Brothers, ASA Holidays, and EU Holidays will also be there to show you the incredible Korea packages they have prepared. Overall, more than 55 exhibitors will be present. 

Of course, the fair caters to Hallyu fans wanting their fix of K-culture. Visitors can take part in a K-food cooking class, where they will learn how to whip up classic Korean dishes like bibimbap (mixed rice) and sundubu jjigae (soft beancurd stew). For the beauty enthusiasts, there is a K-beauty workshop which will teach you how to recreate the cutest Korean idol makeup looks. 

Lastly, the KTO fair has in store Korean movie screenings and a non-verbal art performance titled: The Painters. This mesmerising performance blends painting, dance, comedy, and visual effects to create an experience sure to impress any art fan.
