Korea Travel Hotline 1330

Korea 24 Hours Travel Hotline 1330

Launched in September 1999 by the Korea Tourism Organization, 1330 is a telephone number for tourist information (and other assistance).

The telephone service was launched because various regional tourism information telephone services differed not just in working hours but also in service quality. 1330 is a national tourist information service available 24/7. One does not have to dial the area code or exchange number from any part of the country.

The information at 1330 is available in four languages i.e. Korean, English, Japanese, and Chinese courtesy of certified tour guide-interpreters 24 hours a day. In addition to tourist information, tourist guide can also offer interpretation services, receive tourist grievances, and make accommodation reservations.

1330 also helps foreigners in distress get emergency aid in collaboration with 120 (Seoul Call Center, Dasan 120), 110 (Government Call Center), 119 (Fire, Emergency, and Ambulance), telephone number of the consul concerned (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), and 112 (Police).
