Korea launches mobile travel app

Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO) has launched the Visit Korea app for iPhone and Android users. The mobile application provides easy and convenient access to tourist information on Korea. KTO is one of the first national tourism operators to provide countrywide travel information via smart phone service.

Some key features include recommended itineraries, a photo gallery, and access to interpretation services by clicking on the 1330 tt call center link. Also, with GPS integration, users can search travel information by their current location. Other travel tools include real-time exchange rates, local weather, world time and essential travel phrases.

To download the application, search for ’Visit Korea’ in the Apple App Store and ‘KTO’ in the Google Android Market. The app is also available in the online markets of the three main service providers in Korea (LG Oz Store, SK T Store and KT Olleh Market).
