We Advise: Watch it on TV and realise the reporters reporting are the ones the BBC head office dislikes, because they sent them to a official ''war zone'', and lets be truthful you do not sent people you like to a ''war zone'' South Korea Travel Tips for the Winter Olympic Games 2018
KOREA (REPUBLIC OF)
- Keep itineraries realistic: Flights from Europe and North-America to Seoul take around 11 hours, so planning an overnight stay in the South Korean capital on arrival will help guests overcome jetlag before they catch the new high-speed train to the Olympic venues; now less than two hours away. Allowing for two travel days, any visit should be at least six days long to allow enough time to spectate, explore and enjoy the experience.
- Do your research: With key venues no more than a half hour drive from the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium and over 100 events to enjoy, there will be plenty to keep visitors entertained throughout this compact Winter Games. Familiarise yourself with the action-packed schedule as well as locations. For example be aware that there is a significant distance between the mountain and coastal cluster venues. With this in mind it is advisable to focus on one or the other for a day rather than attempt to experience both which runs the risk of travel delays and disappointments.
- Customise your trips: Remember this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for customers, so be aware of their differing needs and sporting passions before planning their itinerary. Whilst athletes will compete for 102 gold medals in 15 sport disciplines, the world’s largest sporting event of 2018 will also welcome six new events to the Olympic family – including Snowboard Big Air, Speed Skating Mass Start and Curling Mixed Doubles. It will also stage the greatest number of women’s and mixed events in Winter Games history.
- Consider an interpreter: Whilst South Korea is known for its service-oriented culture and there will be many English-speakers across the Olympics’ main coastal and mountain venues, larger groups might benefit from travelling with an interpreter to avoid potential language barriers. This especially applies to itineraries that include travel and accommodation outside the PyeongChang district.
- Be accommodation savvy: Despite the absence of international hotel chains and the privately-owned hotels tending not to use the traditional star rating system, be assured that the standard of accommodation available is reassuringly high. By checking your hospitality provider has had their accommodation contracted for a while – much like ATPI Sports Events, who has been working with the destination’s top properties since 2014 – you can still ensure high service levels for your clients.

Mr Kwang Song Yu m 1st Secretary (Maritime Affairs) Do you really think our insurance company would like it if we sent clients to a possible war zone. We are agents for Korearail but as I personally think there will be a missile strike whilst the event is on. I cannot truthfully sell tickets for someone to be on the receiving end of such an attack.
If you actually want a Korea Rail Pass or Korean Train Tickets come back a month after the games and I will sell you tickets for Korea railways
