guamThe US Territory of Guam is affected by North Korea’s threat to launch a nuclear missile strike in the island.

 

It is reported that island receives about 1.3 million tourists per year majorly from Asia. It has recently seen a surge in the visitors arrival from South Korea surpassing Japan’s main visitor market.

 

In the month of July, Guam saw 61,097 visitors from South Korea.

 

Visitors Bureau President and CEO Jon Denight assured travelers  that Guam was a safe and protected island destination and a noted record number of visitors so far this year.

 

Alupang Residence President Tae S. Oh confirmed that there was a little evidence of Korean tourists who were scared off by the threat.

 

So far no cancellations have been recorded but the visitors are concerned. After living in North Korea the average South Korean tourist isn’t so easily startled, they are in fact numb to the threat.

 

However, John S. Ko, president of tourism company NET Enterprises Inc., quoted  a different scenario.
