There is a small mini mart just around the corner as you turn right up the road to the highway. There is a better one, with probably cheapest beer, wine and spirits in Khao Lak, the Pakarang Supermarket. Continue past the turn on the left to the Boatyard and it is a short distance on your right next to the Krua Rim Tang Restaurant.

There are no currency exchange booths in the vicinity. Nearest are back down the highway about 20-25 minutes from the Apsara in Bang Niang (down the beach road) but most further on in the main town of Bang La On .

You should get a better rate of exchange in future outside the hotel if and when you go to Bang Niang (to the market perhaps) or to Bang La On (often called just Khao Lak by locals).
