Exchange MYR to SGD

I'm a Malaysian, just want to ask a weird question: should I exchange to SGD locally or do so at Singapore? I wonder if there is any differences between the rate?

No doubt rates will be different. Check indicative rates in Singapore here http://www.mustafa.com.sg/forex.asp

And compare them with what you can get at home.

Hi Luc Tong,

I remember reading a post that said the rate at City Square, JB was better than what you can get in Singapore. Personally, I have never checked as I usually do not carry much cash on me when I enter Malaysia. But yes do check the rates indicated in the previous posts and compare them with what you can get locally.

My $0.02.

Singapore Nancy, the exchange rate is not necessary cheaper in JB. Over the pass several months, I had been changing SG to RM and I get better rate in SG than over in JB. The stated rate at most counter in JB is much lower than SG. However, if you approach them and ask about the rate, they do offer better rate than stated on their window. If you are not changing much like I do, the difference isn't significant. Don't need to bother much. As for now, the difference is some what marginal for small amount. so no worry.
