Winners were asked to be in front of the Korea Tourism Organization Headquarters before 9am. All then proceeded to the 5th Floor for the orientation of the whole tour and introduced each other.
We were informed that throughout the tour, KTO will take photos and videos of the activities and would share them to all international Korean fans who have not visited Korea. We were also asked to share our experiences real-time on SNS and that the Top 4 people with the best Buzz will have presents at the end of the tour. During the whole tour, were were given portable Wi-fi connection to help us with our SNS activity.
The winners were five Chinese, five Japanese, and three from English-speaking countries (me from The Philippines, Indonesia and United Arab Emirates).
We were each given a kit that includes the detailed schedule and programs, a name card, a tour pin, a uniformed jacket, and all the necessary contact information.
After that, we began our roadtrip to Sancheong. 🙂

You will see a statue of the blue and red KTO logo out front.

3. Take Subway Line 5 and go out of Exit 5 of Gwanghwamun Station.
