Is there a limit to how much you can exchange in one transaction at a currency exchange booth?

Don´t think so as long as they have the cash to sell to you!?

Most I have ever exchanged in one stop is $1,000. US  no problems and then right into the safe with most of it.

I've changed $10k twice now. They never batted an eye.

If there is a limit I don't see a problem since there are a shitload of exchange booths in Pattaya.  For example there is a TT exchange booth on 2nd Rd and the south side of Soi 8 and another TT on the north side of Soi 8.

did they give you a better rate than the posted rate for exchanging a large amount?

I don't think so. I was more into the difference between them and the bank. Over a baht/dollar.

  I have changed £5000 a couple of times , in £50 notes asked the girl for the best rate . She will phone the boss always get a slightly better rate not a lot in it about an extra 1000 or so baht , but worth the extra 2 minutes .
