Money exchange CM airport
Save

Hi all, is there a Recommended money exchange at Chiang Mai airport? I wouldn't want to trawl round a host of them comparing, I'll be knackered! Or maybe there is only one?

My assumption is there will be something, but to only change around GBP 150.00, (for taxi and dinner) and walk to the Super Rich on Loi Kroh Road next day to change the bulk?

Or maybe there is somewhere (Airside) at Bangkok airport, whilst waiting for our connecting flight? Thanks.

£150 for taxi and dinner??? This is Chiang Mai you are talking about, not London!

Make it £50, plenty for taxi and dinner believe me.

HaHa - sorry, and anything else we may see - need a sim card - might need to pay for the safe etc etc.

I'm planning to enjoy the famous street food, so yes maybe a ton too much!

If you are flying from Suvarnabhumi (BKK) there is a SuperRich and Value Plus kiosk in the basement near the airport rail link which will give you same rates as SuperRich in Chiang Mai if you have time.

There are a number of money changes at CNX and they will all be about the same.As I checked them all last time.

There rates will be around the same as Super Rich at BKK or better.

I have been changing my money in Chiang Mai at a place top of Thapae road and near Boots Pharmacy.

The rates have been good for me.

Good day.

1- Money exchange in airport you will have the worst rate.

2- taxi from CM airport to your hotel will cost you 160 THB in private car, dinner will cost you street food 40 THB/ normal restaurant 80 THB per person and if you like fancy restaurant lets say start from 300 THB per person.

3- Change the minimum amount you can in airport as you arrived.

4 - Change the bulk from money exchange shop near from your hotel.

5- Have safe journey
