FEED YOUR S[e]OUL EP04: ‘Travel to Korea, Cheer Together!’

In line with FIFA WORLD CUP QATAR 2022, different countries participated to set up unique booths along Corniche to promote their culture and tourism. The Korean Embassy in Qatar together with Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) hosted the ‘Travel to Korea, Cheer Together!’ at Doha Corniche as part of World Cup-related activations to celebrate the return of travel to South Korea.

‘Travel to Korea, Cheer Together!’ is an opportunity to attract GCC nationals and World Cup visitors from all over the world to reboot and promote tourism in South Korea after fully reopening in October 2022.
One of the most popular influences of Korea nowadays is in the music industry with the advent of KPOP culture, especially in the younger generation.
Korea is also popular for its many shopping places as well as its world-renowned beauty products.

In this edition of FEED YOUR S[e]OUL, we are going to share our visit to KOREA PAVILION and its extensive tourism promotion for residents of GCC. Our main reference is a report from Gulf Times recognizing the effect of World Cup 2022 in driving tourism to South Korea.

There are various activities happening daily at the Korea Pavillion like traditional performances, cheering events, the traditional craft zone, the game zone, and photobooths where you can also wear their traditional dress called HANBOK. They also provide travel consultations, travel brochures, and information needed until December 18. The Korean Pavilion is a great opportunity to attract visitors from the GCC and the rest of the world to South Korea during this World Cup in Qatar.

We got these brochures that will be helpful in planning our trip in 2023.
A detailed travel itinerary depending on the length of stay will make it easier for anyone to plan their trip in the future.
With special Arabic translation to specifically target Qataris, GCC, and several other nationalities who can travel to South Korea by applying for a K-ETA (Korea Electronic Travel Authorization) 48 hours prior to travel.
