Guam - In an effort to show Korean visitors that Guam continues to be a safe destination of choice, HKT and USA Rent A Car and HTS Tour Services donated Korean signage to the Frank E. Smith Precinct in Tumon.

HTS Tour Services president Michael Yi said, "I'd like to announce that we put in the Korean language for the first time in the Government of Guam. So this means a lot of things to us and the Korean community. We welcome them from Korea and also make them safe. This is Guam, Guam is home."

Guam Visitors Bureau deputy general manager Nate Denight adds that Korean visitors continue to be a growing market with 230,000 recorded last year and 260,000 expected to visit the island this year.

Proof of Guam's safety is also evident by the increase in "babymooners", or expecting mothers and their husbands on vacation.
