Seoul offers discounts to tourists

2nd Aug 2013

Foreign visitors on holiday in Seoul this month will be able to take advantage of some big discounts as they travel around the city.

South Korea's capital is continuing its yearly custom of offering deductions to tourists, with more than 1,300 stores participating in the event.

Discounts in the Seoul Hot Summer Sale include 50% off airport rail fares and up to 60% off foreign exchange commissions at major banks.

Most major duty free shops and department stores including Lotte, Hyundai, Galleria and Shinsegae are also participating. Those who spend more than ₩100,000 ($89) will be eligible for prizes including round-trip Korean Air flights to Seoul.

Visitors must print out the "discount card" from the website or download a mobile version and show it when buying, while they may need to show their passports as well.

Cards are also being given out at the Seoul Hot Summer Sale information booth (counter 44) at Incheon International Airport, just in case holidaymakers forget to print one out.

The sale is an event for foreign visitors only, and does not apply to Korean citizens. Tourists have until the end of August to make the most of the fantastic deals on offer.
