TRAVEL & REIMBURSEMENTS
Please plan your flight to arrive on 24 September so you can join us for dinner, and to leave on 28 September (the meeting will end late in the evening of the 27th). Flights will be reimbursed for up to $1500 if traveling from outside of Asia and up to $500 if traveling within Asia. Please note that we can only reimburse non-refundable, economy fares and will not reimburse any premium charges. If you have a medical situation requiring any extra accommodations, please contact us before booking your flight.

Remember that receipts showing proof of payment will be required. Please email to emilyfloyd@emory.edu, by October 15, 2019. Information for reimbursements can be found here.


CURRENCY
Once arriving at the airport, it is recommended that you exchange a small sum for South Korean currency. ₩40,000 should be more than enough for a meal and taxi fare from Daegu International Airport to the hotel.

The currency in South Korea is the Won (₩; KRW). You may access an online currency converter here. (http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/).


GETTING TO THE HOTEL

The Hotel Interburgo EXCO is approximately 10-15 minutes from Daegu International Airport.  It will be simplest and realtively cheap to take a taxi (~₩4,500). In South Korea, a taxi is available for passengers when the light on the top of the taxi is turned on. After signaling a tax, show the driver the address in Korean (see below).  Most taxis will accept credit cards though cash may still be preferred if under ₩10,000. Tipping is not customary, and ensure you ask for a receipt.

When you check-in, the hotel will have your name and request a card for incidentals. The hotel room for 4 nights is covered.
