South Korea’s capital, Seoul remained the most well-known destination for arrivals in 2009, as more than 2.5 million inbound tourists visited the city. Inchon, Busan, Jeju, Daegu, and Daejeon were the following most prominent destinations. Seoul offers varieties of attractions, including cultural treasures, for example, museums and royal residences, just as huge marketplaces, theme/amusement parks, and beauty shops. Myongdong downtown territory is host to a variety of activities, including shopping, dining out, skin care, and entertainment. A huge number of inbound vacationers visiting traditional marketplaces in 2008 and 2009 compensated for the decrease in local shoppers seen because of the economic downturn.

The city of Incheon has seen arrivals development in recent years not just as a result of its proximity to Korea’s largest international airport, but in addition to the advancement of the new business center situated there. A business center point, which uses Dubai as a benchmark, is being created in Songdo on 1,500 acres of recovered land. With the planned city gradually taking shape, Incheon Metropolitan Government has been effectively advancing Songdo globally as a venue for international occasions.
