Currency / Credit Card
Basic unit of Korean currency is won. The exchange rate is subject to change with minor daily fluctuation. Foreign bank notes and traveler's checks can be exchanged into Korean Won at the airport, hotels and at all Korean banks. Credit Cards, e. g. VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club, are all widely accepted.
Time difference/ Business Hour
Korean time is 9 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+9) and Business hours for banks are generally from 09:30 to 16:30 on weekdays only. Banks are closed on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. ATMs are widely available. Major department stores are open from 10:30 to 19:30, including Sundays, but smaller shops tend to open earlier and close later every day.
Electricity
In Korea, electrical outlets are operated at 220 volt only. Overseas delegates bringing laptop computers and other electrical appliances are advised to check whether a transformer is required.
