Korea's currency unit is won which comes in 1,000, 5,000
and 10,000 won bills, and 10, 50, 100 and 500 won coins.
Generally, banks are open between 09:30-16:30 Monday to
Friday. Automated teller machines are in operation 24
hours a day. Most larger stores, hotels and restaurants
in Korea will accept major international credit cards.
However, it is advisable to carry some cash, since many
smaller establishments and stores are unlikely to accept
any credit cards.
