To incentivise UAE travellers, Cathay Pacific has partnered with the Korea Tourism Organisation to create a series of promotional summer fares for customers to book immediately until August 15 – the ideal offer for residents looking to take advantage of attractive airfares this Eid.
South Korea’s green mountains, bustling cities and picturesque hideaways provide a great holiday destination for travellers from the Middle East.
Starting from as little as Dh2,535, travellers can explore the booming tech capital Seoul and its numerous historical sites, head to the coastal port city of Busan with its surrounding mountains and beaches, or simply relax on the scenic island of Jeju.
“Seoul has long been a popular entry destination for travellers looking to explore South Korea. With the growing popularity of Korean cuisine, cinema and music in recent years, demand for flights to different cities in South Korea continues to increase. Travellers that decide to delve a little deeper in their explorations are rewarded by a wealth of sights and experiences across the country, making it a destination that truly deserves ‘must visit’ status this summer,” said Anand Yedery, Cathay Pacific’s regional head of marketing & sales.
Cathay Pacific operates two daily flights from Dubai and one daily service between Dubai and Bahrain, with onward connections to more than 200 destinations through its own dedicated terminal at Hong Kong International Airport.
Discover the South Korean capital’s intriguing blend of modern skyscrapers and shopping malls alongside historic temples and night markets – home to delicious street food and endless shopping options. A short trip outside of the city lies the country’s largest theme-park, Everland, which is offering Cathay Pacific passengers 20 per cent discount on entry tickets with the presentation of their boarding pass. The first 50 passengers to book through Cathay Pacific’s website will gain a free one-day pass. 200 Everland souvenirs available at the theme-park.
One of the most scenic destinations in Korea, Jeju is home to white sand beaches and lush green countryside. Travellers can dine on delicious Jeju cuisine and enjoy a relaxing holiday by navigating rural island villages where age-old traditions are worth discovering.
The large, bustling port city of Busan is one of South Korea’s major hubs. The city is close to beaches, mountains and temples that attract visitors from all over the world. A little over 30 minutes north of Busan lies the former capital of Gyenongju, Korea’s ancient kingdom, where visitors can get lost in ancient sites and artefacts.
The promotional fares are available until August 15 for travel until November 30.
