Hospitality internship in Seoul

Being the 4th largest economy in Asia, South Korea attracts a large amount of international travelers every year, especially to its capital Seoul. With Korean entertainment culture, note K-pop music (remember Gangnam Style?), now being prominently recognized on the world stage, there has been a big surge in South Korea’s international tourism.


The reasons are not just business and leisure, but health and wellness too. The country’s rising stature as an international tourist spot and flourishing tourism have been instrumental in fueling its hospitality boom. And now South Korea is one of the hottest hospitality destinations in the world, as well as a leading culinary destination!


Tourists demographic is expanding, thus boosting the hospitality sector all around the country, not just in the metropolitan cities like Seoul. The fact that South Korea will be hosting the Winter Olympics 2018 is a testament to its world-class hospitality industry. South Korea is an inviting destination not just for the travel enthusiasts, but also for international talent who have big ambitions for themselves in the hospitality sector. Such talent should seize the opportunity of a hospitality internship in Korea early in their career. The career path following a Korea internship only leads to the pinnacle!
