Money Exchange in Bangkok

If you happened to be in Bangkok and want to change your US dollars or pounds or Euros into thai baht, the easiest way is to go to a money exchanged from a bank located in most places, especially shopping malls and tourist areas. However, the rate they pay is too low. If you want to exchange large amount of money, say 1000 dollars, then a good idea is to go to one of those authoruzed money exchanges. They are not as numerous as the bank exchanges but they pay better than banks. A few days ago, I went to one such exchange which name is Super Rich. While those at the banks paied around 37.17 baht a dollar, they paid me 37.50 baht! and for 1000 dollars, it is 330 baht difference!!! It is located near Big C at Chidlom. Take MRT, get off at Chidlom, walk past Gayson Department Store to Ratchdamri Road to Big C. Enter the stree to the left of the bus stop near Big C. There is a sign board for it. You also get more if you want to buy some US dollars too.
