2016 Travel Show

With a one of a kind Virtual Reality (VR) experience, you’ll be able to experience different destinations and attractions in Korea as if you are really there in person. Prepare to be enchanted by beautiful Cherry Blossom Festivals, the bustling coastal city of Busan, along with many other less traveled (yet just as marvelous) destinations, such as Yeosu and Geoje.

Perhaps most unique and special of all for this year’s 2017 Korea Tourism Promotional Booth, is the Virtual Reality experience for Pyeongchang’s 2018 Olympic facilities. Surrounded by the picturesque Taebaek Mountains, Pyeongchang offers a gorgeous backdrop in addition to its world class stadiums. For those feeling a little adventurous, you can also partake in a VR Olympic Ski Jump experience (right from the comfort of the Ottawa Shaw Centre!)
