Money Changers in Pattaya and Siem Reap

Money Changers in Pattaya and Siem Reap

1. Pattaya, Thailand
I've checked the rates at a number of money changers in Pattaya. There's a small money changer along Soi Buakhao called "TT Currency Exchange". Heading north towards Pattaya Klang, it's somewhere in the middle of Soi Buakhao, on the left.

This shop has the best rates I've come across. The teller said there's no other money changer that can beat her rates. She'll match any rate if I can find one better. I couldn't.

2. Siem Reap, Cambodia
There's a money changer at the junction of Sivatha Road and Pokambor Avenue. It's actually a shop selling drinks and snacks, with a small stall for changing money. The shop doesn't have an English name. It's right next to Angkor Park guest house. Good exchange rates.

I always went with the indian on WS, couldn't find better.
There are many branches of TT currency exchange in Pattaya.
I would think they all have the same rate?

Probably same rate as other branches. But I always went to the one in Soi Buakhao cos I lived there.

One to check out though it might be a little of the beaten path is named "The Gold Shop"

It is just past the junction of Pattaya Tai & 3rd Rd in Rungland .

This is a money changer that constantly gives a extra couple of points on the best rates available on any given day.

I have no doubt Walking St. past Linda Bar is the best. Don't know if being a long time customer means anything but I usually get 3 or 4 points above the advertised rate , which itself is usually equal to or better than at other places .

A little bartering doesn't go astray, a trait not usually found at exchange booths.
