Korea has tourism resource competitiveness in the areas such as arts, historic places and heritage, humanity landscape and architectural buildings. Korea is a tourist friendly country; Modern IT technologies are utilized in Korea to strengthen tourism competitive abilities. The biggest advantage and benefits from Korean government-led development mode lie in the meaningful point that private tourism sectors would save marketing expenditures already spent through governmental involvement. With governmental endeavor, Korean cultural tourism is internationally oriented. The share of tourism contributing to Korean economies, especially to some local economies has been increasing since the end of the last century. According to the case study in this paper, the direct contribution percentage of tourism receipts to the total GDP of Jeju province for year 2003 is about 47.9%. Cultural and natural tourism development is also meaningful for most local economies in Korea. (The rest omitted)
