KTO Walking Tour App and it's usage

Korean Tourism Organization launched Seoul city walking tour app, which gives unique yet correct and meaningful information about HOT tourist spot in Seoul including Gwanghamun, Seoul city museum, Insa-dong etc. You can also see maps through app, and know your current location!

I am highlighting main features of app below!

Some of the places covered by Seoul walking app! 

Language Support ( it is available in Japanese, Chinese, and English) 

You can find many apps that are related to it. They are very useful while traveling in Korea. 

App has built-in functionality, through which one can call 1330 directly from app. It comes handy at times. 

Best part of the app is it's audio information. Plenty of information is provided using crisp and clear voice. The app imagines that you are about to enter tourist zone, and it tells you historical background and it's significance. 

Another good part of app is screenshots/images of tourist spot. It can give you some idea before visiting it. In this way, you can easily find place and see it's main attractions. 

Last but not least, it gives you information about all attractions in a list format. 

I will highly recommend to download this app : Below are links for Android and iOS :
