There is a new trend in overseas travel. Rather than traveling to big cities or resorts, traveling to local areas for unique experiences, namely, a Glocal tour has become the trend. Glocal is a compound word combining global and local, meaning unique local culture and tourism resources spread to the international community beyond a region or nation. This concept became possible with the development of a transportation network that will take you to various regions easily and fast. Plus, the availability of tourism information has become easily accessible via media and SNS channels.
Korea is a good country for Glocal tours. It has an excellent transportation system that includes high-speed rail services and red buses, which can take you anywhere within a few hours. Each region is uniquely different based on its geology and weather. It will be fun to experience the traditional cultures that are well preserved in each area.
