The Los Angeles office of the Korea Tourism Organization and Avanti Destinations have partnered to launch a downloadable “lookbook” on South Korea, an e-brochure designed to help travel agents re-engage with their independent travel clients dreaming about future travel.
The new 32-page South Korea lookbook, available on Avanti’s agent portal, highlights five destinations, one 10-day/9-night customizable vacation, and 11 private and semi-private activities and experiences, including hiking up a mountain, cooking classes, a tour of Korean TV drama filming locations, and a taekwondo lesson with dry sauna. All Avanti experiences in South Korea include private local guides and private transfers.
“South Korea should be on the bucket list of any independent American traveler interested in Asia,” said Avanti’s CEO Paul Barry in a press release statement. “Too few people know about the thousands of years of Korea’s distinctive culture and cuisine, its dynamic modern cities, beautifully preserved traditional temples and villages, 14 UNESCO World Heritage sites, and the country’s stunning mountain and coastal scenery, particularly on the volcanic island of Jeju with its fascinating lava tube caves. Long on visuals, short on descriptions, this e-brochure will help travel advisors get the conversation started and help get clients dreaming about travel.”
Five Destinations—Singular Experiences
Avanti’s South Korea offerings include Seoul; the coastal port city of Busan, known as “the San Francisco of Korea” and renowned for its fresh seafood; the remote, volcanic Jeju Island, ideal for those looking for an escape into nature; Gyeongju, known as “the museum without walls” and brimming with traditional architecture and UNESCO World Heritage sites; and Andong, known for its famous Confucian academy and for the Hahoe Folk Village and Mask Museum.
The new lookbook describes three private and one semi-private experiences in and around Seoul, including a taekwondo lesson with dry sauna; cooking class and local market visit, afternoon tea after a palace tour; and a tour of Petite France, an island where many popular Korean TV dramas were filmed. In Busan, two private tours are highlighted, including a fishcake-making class. On Jeju Island, clients can choose from three nature-focused private experiences, one of which includes a visit to a thatch-roofed folk village, another includes a lesson on Korean’s unique tea culture and visit to a botanical garden considered the best in Asia, and the third includes tours of an arboretum, the lava tube caves and soaking in natural hot springs. Avanti’s 10-day/9-night South Korea Essentials customizable itinerary featured in the lookbook includes visits to Seoul, Busan and Jeju, and city stays in both Gyeongju and Andong—or just one—can be added.
In addition to the new lookbook on South Korea, travel advisors can also check out the 20-page e-brochure, South Korea: Immersed in Tradition, on Avanti’s agent portal.
