Tips and Advice

The basic unit of currency is the won (W). Notes are available in denominations of W1,000, 5,000 and 10,000, and coins are denominated as follows: W10, 50, 100 and 500

Credit Cards

Are widely accepted in large department stores and hotels, but will not be accepted by many smaller shops in either the cities or in rural areas

Don't tip, it’s often considered degrading (the service charge is generally included in the bill), but do give a slight bow and say thank you. Hotel porters, however, customarily receive a bit of change, as do taxi drivers-but only if they assist with the luggage.

Most ATMs on Jeju do not accept foreign ATM/Debit cards for cash withdrawls; most of the few that do are located in the city of Jeju. So get all the cash you can at the airport, especially if you are not staying in Jeju City
