Brief

Both inbound and domestic trips registered healthy growth during the historic period. However, the outbreak of a deadly virus called Middle East Respiratory Syndrome during mid 2015; is anticipated to show a decline in the number of inbound tourists. In order to attract foreign tourists back to the country, Korea Tourism Organization launched its 100-day Tourism Recovery Plan in 2015 through which they can promote the country's tourism locations, cuisine and other tourism offerings. To promote domestic tourism, in 2014, the President announced measures including domestic tourism week and alternative holiday systems at the workplaces. Moreover, outbound trips increased in 2014 following the South Korean Won currency appreciation against the Japanese yen and other foreign currencies including the euro.
