TIC Cultural Events April - May, 2011

2011 Tourist Information Center Cultural Experience Event
In 2011, the Korea Tourism Organization's Tourist Information Center (TIC) is bringing back the fun-filled cultural experience event. A range of hands-on experience programs, including a chance to try on Korea’s traditional wear, the Hanbok, will be held at the TIC located on the basement level of the KTO Headquarters. It is a great opportunity for international travelers to experience Korean culture hands-on and is largely popular because it is free to participate.

The event consists of a wide range of drop-in programs, which allow visitors to dress up in Hanboks, create their own name in Korean calligraphy, make their own traditional handcrafts and play folk games. Simply check the event schedule below and join the event of your choice, reservations are not required.
