The first promotional video of Malaysia covers 5 charming cities, from Kuala Lumpur, a vibrant city already well-known to Koreans; Johor Baru, the southern jewel of Malaysia; Sabah, the hidden gem of the country; Penang, the culinary capital; to Selangor, a state where people can take a break from the city and relax.
The second promotional video of the Philippines introduces ‘safe tourism’ in areas such as Boracay, Mimaropa and Calabarzon, where people can enjoy the tranquility of nature, experience the region’s culture and history, as well as enjoy their food.
The third promotional video of Thailand introduces Bangkok, a city loved by travelers from all over the world; Koh Tao, an island known for its spectacular beaches; Chanthaburi, a city blessed with natural beauty; Chiang Mai, the ultimate destination for backpackers; and Khon Kaen, a new wellness tourism hub in ASEAN.
