The bigger exchange places in pattaya all seem to have the same rate. TT is the biggest, they are everywhere

The only place I have found that has a distinctly shittier rate is walking st. Obviously hooking into unsuspecting tourists

Yes, that is totally true. Didn't realize there was such a big difference until my last trip when I exchanged at my usual Bangkok exchange in ruamchitt hotel and saw that us$ to Thai baht was less than 30 where as all the exchanges in Pattaya were above 30.

hotels anywhere give a shit rate your Pattaya hotel would probably been even worse than the Bangkok one.

Oh, sorry, it's actually not the hotel but the exchange stall connected to hotel. This one stall actually has better rates than all the other exchanges on sukhumvit but still not as good as the ones in Pattaya.

I've always found them to be the best when I've done my swap..... so you're telling me they're no good now?

I find the exchange stall in ruamchitt hotel to be one of the better stalls in the sukhumvit area. As mentioned above, the best one would be vasu exchange but the wait there can be annoying sometimes and I think they're not open on Sundays. However, the exchanges in Pattaya are even better than the ruamchitt exchange stall.

Yes TT is the best in Pattaya but Super Rich in Bangkok gives the best rates and they also have a booth at the airport which should be the same rate as in Bangkok. Never exchange at the other ones at the airport and never exchange at the hotel.

TT is NOT the best in Pattaya.

If you are on 2nd road at central festival and walk towards soi 7 there are 5 Money Exchange booths

1. rubbish rate.

2. Its Me ...either betters or equals TT

3. TT

4. TT

5. Sabai on corner of soi 7. will equal or better TT

 

It is a short walk between these 5 money booths and worth checking before changing money.

I used to use TT but now I use either ITS Me or SABAI

I would like to offer to change money for you. I guarantee that I can give you more than 38.8 baht for £100. Willing to go to 3000.
