Currency exchange

by NYTim

I am transiting through Incheon Airport on the way to Vietnam. Is there currency exchange in the transit area where I could buy some Vietnamese Dong?

Cheers

Re: Currency exchange

Probably there is one.. but why do you want to change USD to VND at Incheon?
Beside that usually to change money at airport is not always the best deal but in this case you will change USD to VND buying KRW and then sell those KRW to buy VND.
least not last.. most of the times to convert a currency to an other the change is made thru USD...

I arrive late at night in Ho Chi Minh City. If i could change 30 bucks into Dong it would be most convenient. I am not spending any time in Seoul.

I agree, you should avoid changing money in Incheon from USD to VND. The kiosks will not give you the best exchange rates and you will in essence incur exchange transactions twice. However, if you do choose to do so, there are exchange desks on the transit side of security.

When I've arrived late in Vietnam, I've never had a problem getting money. Maybe not 100% of the exchange desks are open, but some of them were open well into the early morning hours. Also, there are ATM machines which I tend to prefer since I find the ATM exchange rate including ATM/cash advance fee equates to the adjusted exchange rate and/or commission fees at the kiosk desks.

I am not talking about exchaning a fortune -- just a few bucks so i can buy a beer when I arrive. I shall get Dong the following morning.

Travel Tips for Seoul

Lotte world and everland....

by Juan_Sng

Lotte world and everland. Skiing in the mountains (mt sorak and others) in winter. As in my S.korea page,visiting the largest in the world with my norwegian friends at Yoido full gospel Church and also meeting my Korean friend for dinner.
Coincidently, we got to know a Korean lady in a Bible study group and she brought us around Seoul.
Thanks for being our guide/shephard on that day ;)

Nanta Theater

by Jun_Oh

Called 'Cookin'' in English, the nonverbal performance had become so popular that a 'Nanta'-only theater has opened July 1 to meet demand. Located near Toksugung Palace in central Seoul, the 300-seat Nanta Theater show the ambitious project all year round. 'Nanta,' dramatizes Korea's traditional percussion performance 'samulnori,' which uses drums and gongs to produce distinctive beats and rhythms. Instead of these traditional musical instruments, which originated in rural agricultural culture, 'Nanta' performers use anything lying around the kitchen, such as brooms, knives, trash cans and mops, to create their own brand of samulnori. This must-see performance, which debuted in 1997, has attracted over 350,000 viewers worldwide, becoming the nation's longest-running show.

When in Seoul or South Korea,...

by M.C.W.

When in Seoul or South Korea, always remember to take off your shoes when entering someone's home. Also, never putyour chopsticks in your rice so that they are sticking up out of your bowl as this is considered very rude. Do not put money down on a counter...put it in the other person's hands, preferably using 2 hands. And if by chance you need to write someone's name....never do it in red ink! This means that you wish them harm!

Travelling in Seoul is relatively safe. People there don't vandalize and aren't into theft, but be careful just the same. The major inconvenience I experienced when living there, was being followed at night by drunken men! I think it is more of a curiosity than anything, but girls travelling alone shoudl be careful.

Oh yes, and be prepared to be stared at (A LOT) if you are not of Korean descent!!! Staring there is not rude, so expect it! And be prepared to get pushed and shoved, especially in crowded subways....shoving is not rude....it's a means of getting by people! So don't take offence!

Exercise and Fitness

by Ewingjr98

Many westerners believe Koreans are not as large as Americans because of the foods they eat. While this may be partially true, Koreans are also crazy about fitness. On weekends, you will see young and old crawling all over steep mountain peaks. Many of the mountains have leveled-off areas with outdoor weight benches and other fitness equipment. Some of these areas also contain busy badminton or tennis courts. The Han River is lined with people walking, roller blading and playing basketball & soccer.

The edges of the city have a few long-range archery venues, a Korean tradition dating back to prehistoric times. Koreans are so good at archery, in 2004 Korea won its 11th straight women's individual Olympic gold medal in the sport!

Bowling

by Vita500

In Korea and Seoul especially you are able to find a relatively high number of Bowling facilities, called "Bowling Chang" (º¼¸µÀå) in Korean.
Some are new, some are old but it's great fun nontheless.
Just look for a giant bowling pin on any rooftop and you know where to go! Everything you need is provided. Bowling balls are provided in all different sizes, shoes are available against a small fee.
