Chaing Mai ATMs?

Hi. Going to Chiang Mai for a few weeks. What's the best way to change USD to baht? Are airport exchange rates bad? Read elsewhere there is no Citibank in Chiang Mai - is that true? What ATM networks can one find there - star, visa, 1, etc.? Thanks for your advice!

One will find Thai Bank ATM's there.

Change your US$ in Thailand, be that at the airport or the city. There's not a huge difference between what the various bank operated exchange booths are offering on the US$.

If you plan to exchange more than US$1000 at a time, it "can" then pay to shop around a little.

The only Citibank branch in Thailand is in Bangkok... go to your website.

Citibank will also advise on the website under Banking > International Services > Travelling Overseas > Locate Branch or ATM - just where you may withdraw without any fees whatsoever as long as you have the correct account ... check with your bank.

Cheers ツ

If you have an international ATM the majority will accept MAESTRO.

Thai ATM takes all major credit cards... I've used Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, Eurocard to name a few....

What your bank/credit charges for withdrawal at foreign ATMs depends on your arrangement...
