Money and Currency

Currency

Euros is the prominent currency now in DPRK among the other curency units such as USD, British Pounds, Chinese Yuan and Japanese Yen.

Money

The local currency in DPRK Won. US Dollars and Yuan are also permitted, but Euros are preferred. The DPRK Won is for souvenir purpose only. For personal expenditure in the country, we recommend taking Euros in cash. Be sure to take small denomination notes with you, as change is often not available for larger notes. All the credit cards are now impossible to use nationwide and there are no ATMs in the country, therefore please bring enough cash to spend for your personal expenses.

Tipping is not compulsory but highly recommended to any tourists to DPRK, should they find satisfied with the guides and driver. The DPRK is a developing country and its people’s standard of life is rather low, therfore your tipping money could help them improve their life. In terms of gifts, you will find most Korean men have the habits and hobby of smoking, hence Western cigarette brands will be gratefully received. For the ladies, some perfume will be a nice suggestion. Western alcoholic drinks, chocolates, confectionary, pens can be other options. We would highly recommend a combination of cash and gifts.
