The Korea Tourism Organization(KTO) Kuala Lumpur Office promotes tourism and provides general travel information on South Korea. All the brochures are provided free of charge, and include maps and travel guides. Visitors, especially those traveling Free & Easy to Korea, can approach any one of the staff for the specific assistance.

1. Consumer Assistance
With our wide array of brochures, visitors might feel a little 'lost' as to which brochure they should be collecting for their travel. With an idea of travelers itineraries, KTO KL will be able to help visitors select only the relevant brochures.

If a visit to KTO KL's office is inconvenient, travelers can drop us an email and the brochures can be mailed instead.

As our office unable to offer direct assistance for hotel reservations, we can provide the contacts instead so that travelers can make their own reservations with ease. In the event that travelers feel 'confused' by the massive number of tour itineraries available in the market as advertised in the daily newspaper, KTO KL can assist them the best itinerary to suit their needs.

From time to time, KTO KL also organizes public seminars to increase awareness of Korea as a holiday destination for specific target travelers, eg. Free & Easy travelers.

2. Travel Agent Assistance
Currently, KTO Kuala Lumpur oversees promotional activities in Malaysia, and Brunei.

At the forefront, we are closely with travel agents as well as airlines in the development of new tour itineraries, provide training for staff to equip them with more effective selling skills, and introduce Korea to agents through familiarization tours.

KTO Kuala Lumpur also organizes trade events to bring Korea closer to travel agents by inviting Korean delegates comprising of land operators, ski resorts and theme park operators, as well as representatives from provincial and city government offices. These events have been instrumental in the development of interesting Korean tour programmes, while bridging the gap between Korea and the respective markets.

In a supporting role, KTO KL also regularly produces press releases to ensure that new developments are constantly communicated and updated to the media. Our office also plans yearly marketing campaigns to maintain the image of Korea as a choice of holiday destination through advertising in the local newspapers, on television and radio and even outdoors (eg. Bus advertising ). Press trips are often planned so that invited journalists can experience Korea's distinctive culture, traditions and attractions, such as gourmet tours, visits to Korea's entertainment spots and shopping districts.
