Seoul Global Physicians Diagnose Seoul Tour a Great Success O n 28 August 2015, family and friends accompanying speakers and VIPs of the International Union of Phlebology event (Seoul UIP 2015) enjoyed a special tour sponsored by the city of Seoul and arranged by the Seoul Tourism Organisation. The congress ran from 27-29 August. The itinerary took participants on a whirlwind of activities, including making kimchi, touring the traditional streets of Seoul’s Insadong area, and lunch atop Seoul’s iconic cityscape viewing spot, N Seoul Tower. In the afternoon, participants also had a chance to experience a traditional Buddhist Dado tea ceremony at Jogyesa, one of Korea’s most famous temples located right in the heart of Seoul. The tour was part of Seoul’s MICE Tours programme, a series of customisable tours that encompass full- and half-day courses spanning several different industries and themes, such as sustainable energy, transportation, economy, IT, finance, shopping, culture, Buddhism, nightlife and medical tourism. Participant feedback on the MICE Tour was overwhelmingly positive. Tour participant Galina Lurie from the United States highlighted the kimchi-making course as her favourite part of the tour. “The tour made me feel like I was on a vacation with my close friends, and we made many great memories during the programme," she said. Meeting planners interested in including a tour for their event in Seoul should contact the Seoul Convention Bureau for more information regarding eligibility and availability.
