The caravan will offer various experimental activities, such as the ASEAN Culture and Tourism Library and ASEAN Quiz and Game Zone. Some 150 students have been recruited to participate in the expedition.

“The special vehicle of the ASEAN Roadshow, representing the uniqueness of ASEAN, will travel from the heart of Seoul to the regional cities of Korea with an aim to stir excitement and enhance the awareness of ASEAN culture and tourism destinations among the Korean public more effectively,” said ASEAN-Korea Center Secretary-General Kim Young-sun.
