Regularly Operating Seoul-Jeonbuk Lines for Enlarging Foreign Tourists

 

 

Jeollabuk-do has operated regular tourist buses between Seoul and Jeonbuk Province exclusively for foreigners only since last March. As Seoul-Jeonbuk foreigner-exclusive regular tourist buses are being operated from Exit No. 2 at Myeong-dong Station in Seoul to major famous tourist sites within our province including Jeonju Hanok Village on Friday, Saturday and Sunday every week, these operations are attracting foreigners visiting Seoul into Jeollabuk-do.

 

In order to overcome difficulties in attracting foreign tourists due to the lack of international airports, Jeollabuk-do introduced foreigner-exclusive regular tour buses(hereinafter foreigner shuttle buses). Foreigner shuttle buses start from Exit No. 2 at Myeong-dong Station in Seoul on Friday, Saturday and Sunday every week, and then arrive at Jeonju Hanok Village or major famous tourist attractions or festival sites within our province.

 

Only foreigners holding their passports can get on board, and can reserve their return tickets for 10,000 won on the internet site, jbshuttle.com, and can purchase day tickets for other unreserved seats on the boarding spot.

 

 

 

Because passengers reserving down lines on Friday can also reserve up lines on Saturday or Sunday, it is expected to help Jeonbuk stay-type tourism to be increased. Tourists boarding foreigner shuttle buses are informed of explanations about tourist resources or attractions in Jeollabik-do as well as explanation and usage about tour pass distributed in time of boarding the buses. In addition, those tourists can watch videos publicizing Jeonbuk tourism to obtain information on tourist sites in Jeollabuk-do. As a result, it is predicted to increase their revisit to Jeonbuk province.

 

As interests in foreigner shuttle buses for tourists have been increased, retweeting foreigner shuttle bus posting on Chinese Sina Weibo were much higher than other contents. Among Jeonbuk tourism-related postings on Japanese Ameba Blog, foreigner shuttle bus contents show popular responses to be utilized as an opportunity for publicizing Jeonbuk tourism to each country.
