Fx Tips: Changing Money in Bangkok

In Bangkok, one can easily find a money exchange booth at any street corner across the city. The good news is that they are all licensed. The not so good news is, rates vary between different providers, and even between different branches of the same Fx chain

The general rule of thumb is, Fx chains and independent money changers have better rates than booths operated by banks. Just make sure that your passport is there with you whenever you show up at a money changer as it is legally required for any Fx transactions in Thailand
