Vietnam tourist websites to include Korean language

The ASEAN-Republic of Korea Center (AKC) has said that it will build a Korean-language program for websites of tourist agencies of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar in 2011 to help Korean people gain easy access to tourist information of these countries.

Vietnam is currently a popular destination for Korean tourists.
About 53,000 tourists from the Republic of Korea visited Vietnam in 2000, but the number in 2010 increased to 500,000, making the RoK the second largest tourist market for Vietnam.
While addressing a seminar last week, Cho Young Jai, the AKC General Secretary, said that his center was planning several activities to boost tourism and cultural exchanges as well as promote an understanding between the RoK and the ASEAN countries.
