Tourists visiting Korea may soon be able to ride in double-decker buses and fly on small planes to visit the country's many remote islands. This is all part of the tourism ministry's new initiative to revitalize Korea's tourism industry.
The government says it plans to loosen some of the current regulations for private investors to simplify the start-up process and improve public transportation for the benefit of tourists.
Other measures include creating more hostels and camping sites across the country so that backpackers can travel on a budget. Along with these moves, individuals who hold permanent residency status in the G10 nations will soon be able to enter Korea without visas.
