    Changing money in BKK

    I always use SuperRich (orange colour booths) when changing money in Bangkok, including getting other currencies needed for other trips (e.g. USD, Indonesian Rupiah).

    I go to the Silom branch for the latter, and just noticed the fine print on their website...0.2 baht better rate on AUD yesterday when going to head office or Silom branch. 25.2 compared with interbank rate of 25.3....25 at sub-branches. Thus, cost of 0.4%, which is as cheap as I have seen it. The 25 (1.2% cost) is still a very good rate, but worth the effort of going to Silom when changing large amounts regularly.

    Silom branch is between Sala Daeng and Chong Nonsi BTS, near the corner where the BTS heads left to Chong Nonsi.
