BAY on the top floor of MV will give you a better rate than the exchanger in the basement (at least they did the last time I needed to change some currency).

SCB are about the worst and avoid the airport, you'll lose 5%.

if you fly over Sumpi you go to the basement of the airport. There are several stalls when you go down the big stairway.
The one i prefer is superrich. You will get about 30 satang more the 12 Victory in MV. You can watch the rate in IN. Just look for superrich.

Try this site. Should sort you out. Just alter the money search parameters in the top row for currency, how much and whether cash or whatever.

12 Victory and Super Rich were both the same when I needed to change some GBP last week. I'll check BAY tomorrow, didn't know they existed, thanks.

12 Victory seem to take notes some of the others turn their noses up at, such as those with writing and small nicks. A bit off topic but might be useful to someone!

The hua hin branch of superrich is nothing i would recomment. There rates are even worse than 12 VIctory as i went there lately. The best rate you only get in Bangkok.

:agree: Most of these things in Hua Hin have a premium attached to them. Also used SR in Bangkok and their rate was almost spot on with the xe.com rate.

SuperRich, their Bangkok branches give a better rate than their Hua Hin one.
