Best Money Exchange Rates in Bangkok
Super Rich Thailand (Rajdamri Soi 1) near Big C on Ratchadamri Road is the place for best exchange rates in Bangkok. These people function like a bank. Currency exchange process here starts with taking a copy of the customer's passport. Photocopy machine is on the right side after entering. The customer is then asked to write his/her hotel name on the passport copy and sent on to stand in one of the queues. At the counter, they count the money and give a token to the customer. Wait again, this time outside the queue. At last they call the token number on a public address system and one gets the desired currency with a printed receipt. The extra money one gets because of the favorable exchange rate makes all the hassle worth enduring. The place is air conditioned, and cool drinking water is available. Monday - Friday open from 9.00am to 6.00pm and Saturday/public holiday 9.30am to 4.30pm. You can see the exchange rates offered by Super Rich (Thailand) on their website which is updated several times during the day. This is the link: Current Super Rich Thailand Bangkok Exchange Rates. Just remember that by the time you get to their office the rates may have changed again, so don't get alarmed. Later in this page, you will read about Super Rich (1965), another money exchange shop located close to Super Rich (Thailand).

Getting to Super Rich Thailand is easy. You can either get down at Ratchadamri or Siam Sky Train station. Ask someone for directions to Big C. It is walking distance from both stations but Siam is a bit closer. Going from Ratchadamri/Siam station, you will reach Big C as in the above picture. Walk past Big C and at the next turn go right and again ask someone for Super Rich Thailand. It is very close from there.
Super Rich (1965) (Orange Signage)
|Super Rich (1965) Money Exchange Ratchadamri Bangkok|
Super Rich (1965) has orange sign boards like you see in the picture above. Lately, the competition among these two exchange shops has increased so much that the staff of Super Rich (1965) stand opposing the entrance of Super Rich (Thailand) and try to call the customers to come to their shop instead. If that happens to you, you should just ignore them because the exchange rates offered by Super Rich (1965) are not as good. I have compared their exchange rates with those offered by Super Rich (Thailand) on different occasions and always found Super Rich (Thailand)'s rates to be better. For that matter I have compared Super Rich (Thailand)'s exchange rates with dozens of exchange shops & counters in Bangkok and never saw anyone beating Super Rich (Thailand).
Super Rich (1965) is open 9.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Saturday. I have changed money with them a few times when Super Rich (Thailand) was closed. To be fair to them, Super Rich (1965) offers rates better than many other money changers in Bangkok but they just don't do better than Super Rich (Thailand). Lately, Super Rich 1965 have also started taking a copy of the customers' passports with the hotel name written on them which they were earlier not doing.
