Best place to exchange dollars to Baht?


Recommended Posts

Looking to see if there are any place that is better than other (rates) and which may be unsafe?

I recommend exchanging at official bank sponsored booths, such as Siam Commercial, Kasikorn, Bangkok Bank, etc. The rates are about the same. Obviously count your money afterwards and compare with the receipt and should be fine.

best rates are normally at the BANK GOLD ( that's what the sign says ) an independant xchange at the back of a gold shop run by a pigs family on soi rungland ( near the international tel exchange building ), it's one of the few places u can also buy foreign currency without hassle.

Withdrawing money from your bank account via an ATM will give you the best rates, provided your bank does not charge you a fee for this.


After that, any bank sponsored exchange booth offers a fair rate and they're all similar enough that there's no need to shop around. I usually swap some right in the airport before moving along.


hotels usually have the worst rate, but can be convenient if you're pressed for time, or brand new to an area.


And don't bother swapping money beforehand in the US, absolute rip off.

Depends on how much you want to exchange. I exchange about $1000 a week and go straight into the bank. NO fees and if you play it right and wait until a little later in the day when the baht is a little higher instead of first thing in the morning, you might get a little better rate. Forget the booths that charge you a fee to change money.

Not sure if they do anymore.

    • 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
