Is there a currency exchange place in Karon ?

... or should I do it at the airport ? leaving for Phuket on 5th July, just a few more sleeps to go... we are staying at the Centara Karon Resort.

All prepared, just not sure about the money exchange thing. Any good advice would be appreciated :-)

There are exchange booths in Karon but you should change some money at the airport as you might want some cash en route. The exchange rates are the same in the airport as at that same bank's branch/booth elsewhere.

There are several booths on the main street heading towards the beach, (5 mins walk from the hotel) but as mentioned you want to have some before you leave the airport.

There is also one on the beach road in front of the markets

As the previous guys have said, there are plenty around in Karon and quite a few in Kata if you decide to head a little south.
