All News 14:52 June 14, 2017

SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- South Koreans enjoy moving to multiple cities rather than staying in one place while traveling abroad, data by a travel research engine showed Wednesday.

The ratio of South Korean tourists searching more than one city while booking international flight tickets was 17.6 percent for the first five months this year, according to the figures released by Skyscanner, a travel fare aggregator website owned by China's biggest travel company Ctrip. The comparable number was 9.4 percent in 2015.

The figure represents the highest among 35 countries where Skyscanner service is available.

The proportion of South Korean tourists who make stopovers while traveling abroad also rose 4.2 times during the January-May period from two years ago.

International air tickets with stopovers are about 13 percent cheaper than direct flights.
