check out XE.com they publish all the world currency exchange rates.

- with regards to Patong, we were told that all the LEGAL street Booths and Banks charge the same rate (which seems to be true) and fair.

find a nice one (as reccomended by your hotel) and stick too it.

DO NOT USE your hotel, they sting you a huge commission one way or another.

NEVER use a street vendor/ bar owner/ friend around the corner!!

check the money in front of the staff immediatley, and as always be discreet when walking away !

Hi Micky, there are exchange booths in Karon. There are several bank ones and some others. They display their rates on computer screens or a printout at the windows.

The best rates vary slightly through the day. The best site to see "over the counter" rates is in the link below. Note there is no Superrich Bank in Phuket.


To wdt, the rates are not all the same, but generally close. The best rates are at the main entrance to OTOP Markets in Patong.

Best at the moment is 46.1Bt to 1 GBP.
