Registration now open for Asia Now’s Nov. 16 Virtual FAM Tour to Korea

In an effort to inspire and educate Canadian travel agents, Asia Now – a group of national tourism bodies for Korea, Philippines, Singapore, and Taiwan – has launched a first-of-its-kind series of Virtual FAMs to push international travel across its 4 different countries. Hosted on Facebook Live, this campaign is designed to inspire awareness and consideration of the partnered countries, through highlighting unique experiences, customized itineraries and interactive video footage.

On Tuesday Nov. 16 the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) will kickstart Asia Now’s brand new series of Virtual FAM Tours with a showcase presentation highlighting Korea as a world-class travel destination.

Front and centre during the KTO’s Nov. 16 online FAM tour will be the city of Jeonju, known for its historical beauty. Here travellers can experience and stay in Korea’s largest traditional village, Hanok Village, and visit national attractions such as Jeonju Artcraft Center.

This live virtual FAM tour of Korea will start at 6 p.m. PST (9 p.m. EST), on Tues. Nov. 16. Click here to RSVP:
