I bring the chinese money from China for exchange the money in Korea


In China, There are only two banks that exchange money .
If I want to exchange the money I have to go to big city and I have to reserve at least one day before. The exchange fee is also very high.
Before visiting Korea, I tried to find an informations about the money exchange stores in Korea at the website ‘Baidu’ which is the most powerful search engine in China but I couldn’t.
At the Incheon airport, I could find the money exchange centers but I didn’t use the center. Because I couldn’t get any informations about the rates or fees. It was hard to make a decisions.


Can get an information at the China before visiting Korea about the money exchange stores with a currency rates in real-time.
