After the U.S. presidential election, South Korea’s currency has been steadily weakening against the U.S. dollar. The Korean won exchange rate is more than 1,200 won to $1.


Many Korean economists expect the won to continue to slide against the dollar in 2017. This is good news for South Korean exporters and travelers planning to visit South Korea, as the stronger dollar will bring cheaper packages. The best times to visit would in the spring or fall.


Those interested in a trip to South Korea should visit the South Korean government-funded site english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/index.kto for information on attractions, travel, transportation, accommodations, food, shopping and, of course, K-pop.
