[BLOG] Something to look forward to in 2018 :)

PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018. The most anticipated winter Olympic Games in 2018. I managed to attend the opening ceremony hosted by Korea Tourism Organization in Malaysia, also known as KTO Malaysia, at Menara Hap Seng the other day.

So, what is so special about the PyeongChang Winter Olympics? For those who didn’t know, this is their 2nd time organizing the Olympics, the first one took place in 1988. Cited by Mr. Lee Younggeun, the Managing director of Korea Tourism Organization of the Malaysia Branch, “2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics is a great opportunity for Korea to build up the new brand awareness. At the same  time,  Malaysian  tourist  can  rediscover  Korea  that  they  haven’t  known  yet. For example, Gangneung County hasn’t been introduced much to Malaysia, but is a good destination where you can feel the Korea tradition and modern life at the best. Thus KTO will work closely with ˹Wow! PyeongChang!˼ supporters to promote the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic together with introducing Olympic cities in depth.” 

Still feeling a bit clueless about the whole Olympic thingy? Don’t worry, cause you never walk alone on this! (lol). Firstly, let me introduce to you the slogan of the PyeongChang Olympic Winter 2018 “Passion. Connected”, with the slogan in mind, PyeongChang Winter Olympic 2018 wishes to create a festivity and hospitality era furthermore, introducing Korea’s cutting edge technology that connects traditional and modern cultures and transcend through generations. Now, we of course can’t forget about the cute mascots for the Olympics,  Soohorang, a white tiger that represents trust, strength and protection, and Bandabi, an Asiatic black bear represents strong will and courage (both, by the way, are available as animated emoticons in Kakaotalk! Look up for it cause it’s very cute ;D)

Let’s move on to the most important detail of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Where and when? This event will be held at PyeongChang, Gangneung and Jeongseon and the event will run for 17 days, from 9th until April 2017, with more than 50,000 participants from 95 countries. (Wow!)   

To hype up the PyeongChang Winter Olympics even more, several testing programs have already been organized from February last year and on-going till April 2017, with 3,000 participants expected to participate in the test events – many of them coming to Korea for the first time – as well as 1,000 volunteers. What is test events? Well, it's basically an opportunity for participants and officials to familiarize themselves with the competition venues and host region. It will also be the perfect platform to encourage the public to involve and connect with the PyeongChang Winter Olympics events and games. 

Furthermore in order to accommodate the number of visitors coming for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, several stadiums and new highway  are being constructed. When these new highways are completed and open to the public, it will distribute the traffic volume between Seoul area and Gangwon province or Gangneung thus improving the travel distance between this two area. Also, anyone going for the ice sport competition from Gangneung will have something to be excited about as the new highway between East Hongcheon and Yangyang will shorten the travel time, 

What more can we say about the PyeongChang Winter Olympics other than it’s going to  be great! Stay tune for more information about the event cause we are very much excited for it and that’s what we are going to talk about all year! ;) In the meantime, if you’re planning to visit the Seoul this year and need assistance in your itinerary, just head over to Korean Tourism Organization Malaysia.
