New English language tourism websites have been launched for travellers in both Malaysia and South Korea.
The Korea National Tourism Organization (KNTO) has set up a major English-language tourism website (see address below). The new site offers in-depth information on Korea, including weather, exchange rates, transportation, accommodation and reservations services, news and a photo gallery. Extensive sections on sightseeing, food & shopping, festivals and culture in addition to many links, such as the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan site, are also featured.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian Ministry of Culture, Arts and Tourism has launched a new tourism portal as well (see below). The e-commerce facilities offered allow tourists to carry out online bookings for accommodation, theatre, transportation and many other services. It will function in tandem with Tourism Malaysia`s main site (see below). The new portal launched last month provides comprehensive and dynamic travel information on Malaysia and offers e-commerce capabilities.
