us$ or sg$

Hi All! Is it better to change USD to KRW or SGD to KRW? Better to change in the banks or money changers in Myeongdong? By the way, do they also accept CNY? How is the rate? Thanks so much!

Singapore, null...

it actually depends on what u have on hand.... if you're from singapore... then bring SGD... u dont have to change your SGD to USD... they do take a wide variety of currencies..

i was there from dec'12 till early jan'13.....

Dec'12 rates in SG was SGD$1 to 870won

Jan'13 rates then in myeongdong was abt SGD$1 to 860won-865won..... depending on how much u change and which changer.... go walk ard and there are many small changers who have good rates... go ask around before changing...

just saw the rates in SG today... SGD$1 to 850won.... >.<
