Tourist attractions in your palm
The app-book, called “Korea - illustrated booklet,” is the tablet version of the KTO paper book of the same name that earned a design award at the U.S. Astrid Awards in May 2012. The app combines 22 different English publications published by the KTO, making you “one touch away from all the tourist information on Korea,” according to the organization.
The KTO says the app attempts to show off the country’s attractions to the fullest through high-definition photos, video, illustrations and links.
It includes things like cuisine, shopping, K-pop, traditional crafts, Unesco World Cultural Heritage sites and the oft-touted four-season cycle.
“We will also get prepared for the era of smart tourism and are planning to produce a variety of digital promotional materials side by side with paper publications.”
To download the app, search “KTO-books” in the Apple App Store or in Google Play.
