Where should I setup a bank account in Geoje?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Geoje what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Geoje should be aware of several important factors. Firstly, they should understand that the cost of living can be high, especially in terms of housing and healthcare. They should also be prepared for a different healthcare system, which although advanced, may not cover all treatments and medications that they are used to in their home country. Language can be a barrier as English is not widely spoken outside of the expat community and tourist areas. Therefore, learning basic Korean phrases or taking a language course could be beneficial. Geoje has a subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and cool winters, which could be a significant change for those from temperate climates. The food in Geoje is predominantly Korean, with a focus on seafood due to its coastal location. Western food is available but can be expensive and not as readily available. Public transportation is reliable and efficient, but understanding the system can take some time. Driving in Geoje can be challenging due to the heavy traffic and different road rules. Geoje has a rich culture and history, with many festivals, temples, and historical sites to explore. However, it's important to understand and respect the local customs and traditions. Lastly, expats should be aware that the process of obtaining a visa and residency can be complex and time-consuming. It's recommended to seek advice from a legal professional or a relocation expert," remarked another expat in Geoje, Korea.
