The inauguration of this center, which doubles as a cafe, signifies a new era of travel and cultural exchange between South Korea and the Philippines.

A Bridge Between Cultures

Demetrio Alvior Jr., Chief of the City Tourism Department (CTD), emphasized the center's role as a crucial point for information about South Korea, especially Jeju Island. It also serves as a community hub for the Korean population in Puerto Princesa and Palawan, offering direct connections to the South Korean ambassador, Kim Inchul.

The center aims to showcase the natural beauty of Puerto Princesa and the province to South Korean citizens, potentially increasing tourism in the region. This initiative aligns with recent tourism data from the Department of Tourism, highlighting Puerto Princesa as a top destination in the Mimaropa region.

Facilitating Information and Exchange

The facility will cater to inquiries from Koreans and Filipinos alike, providing a wealth of information about traveling and cultural opportunities. As a deputized entity of the Korean embassy, it is equipped to address various concerns and promote tourism effectively.

Inauguration and Support

The opening ceremony saw the participation of key figures, including Puerto Princesa Mayor Lucilo Bayron, businessman Richard Arambulo, Peter Kim from the Korean Ambassador's Office in Palawan, and Elise Kang, representing the Palawan Korean community.
