A book on Seychelles Travel is published and launched successfully as of 25th April, 2013 in Korean book stores. The book < Seychelles , not just another place, another world> (320 pages) showcases what Seychelles offers to travellers – Nature, accommodation, islands, attractions, etc.
The authors are Mr. Dong Chang Jeong, Seychelles Honorary Consul General to South Korea and Ms. Julie Kim, Regional Manager of Seychelles Tourist Office, Korea. They, who say they are already Seychellois in mind, have been in Seychelles more than 50 and 30 times respectively over the past 10 years. Mr. Jeong is also the initiator of Seychelles Eco-friendly Marathon which is now reaching the 7th edition in Feb. 2014.
Mr. Jeong says “I tried to incorporate essential information for Investors as well facilitate the needs of potential investors from Korea. Now that the awareness of Seychelles and travellers are increasing, more entrepreneurs are showing interest in investing in the Seychelles – especially fisheries and renewable energies.”
As the Seychelles Honorary Consul General to Korea and Seychelles Tourist Office, publishing a book on Seychelles has been a long cherished dream for them. They believe this will contribute tremendously to the promotion and better understanding of Seychelles which will induce more exchanges and cooperation between the two countries – in tourism, culture, economy, education, to name only a few.
Ms. Julie Kim says “We are full of passion and love for Seychelles. I expect this book will contribute to general awareness of Seychelles and create more FIT and NICHE travelers.”
All the profits earned through selling the book will be donated to Seychelles in the areas as JJ Spirit, Children’s Foundation, Pearl Seychelles and other Sports and Cultural Events that STO Korea organizes.
The Seychelles Tourist Office, Korea held the Book Launch on the 30th April, 2013 with Korea’s major media journalists and the Friends of Seychelles at Gaheo Gallery, Seoul City with special exhibition of Seychelles Photos.
