Travel is finally back on the cards for Aussies wanting to visit South Korea, and to celebrate Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO) Sydney has launched the Korea Welcomes You event. They’ll be giving away three return flight tickets to Korea each month in April and May.

As demand for travel picks up, major tour companies are also bringing back Korea tour packages. Tour programs take travellers through Korea’s modern and bustling cities, stunning countryside and UNESCO world heritage sites. For something different, bibimbap cooking classes and visits to the Demilitarised Zone between North and South Korea are included as well.

KTO Sydney has partnered with Korean Air (KE) and Asiana Airlines (OZ) for the event. Both airlines are offering direct routes from Sydney (KE, OZ) and Auckland (KE) to South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, with the Sydney to Incheon route taking about 11 hours.

Later this year, consumers will have more ways to fly, with Qantas and Jetstar adding direct flights from November and December. 

To be in the running, eligible Australian and New Zealand residents can visit and complete the short survey and competition question.
