Does anybody know if the banks or bureau de exchanges in Pattaya charge a fee or commission when changing money to Baht. If so how much do they charge and is it a percentage of the money or a flat fee. As I am not sure whether to change in England or whilst there? :)

If you are changing cash there is no fee. If you have traveller's cheques then there is a small fee. I haven't used them for a long time but the last tine I did it was 33 Baht per cheque. Here is a link to the rate the exchanges are giving in Pattaya today: Exchange rates

 

Do not buy any Baht before you leave home. You will get a substantially better rate in Thailand. There are exchanges in the airport. The first one is between immigration and the baggage carousels. Change enough money there to get you to Pattaya. The rate is not that much different to what you will get in Pattaya.

Probably hard to find Baht in UK, Airport exchange rate not as good as Pattaya, Walking Street most competitive area.

Why on earth do you do that ???????????????????????

 

The banks are open 24/7 at the airport when you arrive.

Commission fees vary from place to place in Thailand. Local exchange rates are always better than ones in England or any other foreign country though. I'd stay away from airport exchangers if I were you.

Best choice is to get a Nationwide account and get your money from an ATM. That way you'll get local exchange rates with only 1% commission (as from July 1st.) Until July 1st it's free.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
