Actually money changers in shopping malls have excellent exchange rates.

I agree with SW, some great money changers in malls, Mid Valley has a couple of well credentialed changers as does Suria KLCC. The only advice I have is avoid airports. Total rip off.

Cheers

I agree with posts 3 and 4. I found excellent exchange rates last year at the Pavilion Mall, where I exchanged Vietnamese Dong for Ringgit. There is one on level 1 and another on level 2. Another place to exchange money, especially if you happen to pass through there, is KL Sentral, on the ground floor. If you're coming from the airport by train, this can be very convenient.

Watch out people, if you are booking with Expedia. They play the bait and switch with the hotel rates.

Hotel was advertised at $110 and they charged me $115 per night. After two hours of negotiation, I finally got them to refund me. Very deceitful and disrespectful

Not really a post #6 , that has anything to do with the question asked. Maybe start a new thread.

Do the Currency Exchanges have a preference on the denomination i.e $20 or $50 or $100. Australian.

Is the rate better for the higher notes. thanks

No , as long as the notes are in good condition. I would stick to 50 and 100 dollar notes. Plenty of options all around KL, Adam.
