Kiosk Exchange Rates

Hi,

Coming to Khao Lak on 1st Feb. Last time we came exchange rate was far better at the exchange kiosks in the town rather than here in the UK or airports.

Anyone there now know the current rates for UK pounds and also Euros?

Thanks in advance!!

Rates are better in Thailand than in UK. This gives you current daily rates at all Thai banks for any currency …daytodaydata.net/default.aspx

Private exchange kiosks are a little bit lower for cash generally in Khao Lak.

Thanks both that's good info!

Without me doing the maths, anyone know if it would be better to change some euros I have back to pounds or just bring the Euros and exchange those ( I have about £200 worth )

Bring the Euros and change them otherwise you will be caught with double conversion charges.
