South Korea Offers Favors To Chinese Tourists

SOUTH Korea is planning to give favors to Chinese tourists to mark the Visit China Year in 2010 and Visit Korea Year in 2012, its tourism authorities said in Shanghai yesterday.

The courtesies will include shopping discounts and free rooms and transport, said Lee Cham, director of the South Korean Tourism Organization.

The effort is designed to help tourists from China and South Korea visit each others' countries during the 2010 World Expo Shanghai and the 2012 Expo Yeosu.

Yeosu, a port city, also bid for the 2010 World Expo, but lost to Shanghai. Later it got the 2012 World Expo, which will focus on climate, organizers said.
