It’s always a good idea to bring some cash when you go travel as some places might not have cashless options.
This tourist from China seems to have brought a lot of travel funds as cash and the worst thing is, they lost their bag in Seoul.
According to Chosun, a Chinese tourist was at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza on 16 May in Jung-gu, Seoul where they lost their bag containing 5 million won (RM17,521) in cash.
After 11 hours had passed and they still couldn’t find their bag, they reported it to the tourist police at Dongdaemun Center.
The policemen went to the place but were unable to find anything. It turns out that a citizen had found the bag near the stairs of the Design Plaza and brought it to a police station in the Gwanghui District.
About 50 minutes after the tourist’s report went through, they managed to get the bag back without even a single bank note missing!
The sergeant, Kim Dong Yoon said that the tourist was very surprised and happy that they managed to get their bag back.
Just last month, a Russian tourist lost their wallet containing 3 million won (RM10,500) on a bus from the airport. Later on, they were able to retrieve it as the bus driver kept it safe for them.
These people are certainly very honest and trustworthy. We can’t imagine what would happen if someone lost a huge amount of cash in Malaysia.
