Best Money Changer (Money Exchange) in Pattaya - T. T. Currency Exchange

Pattaya's Beach Road and Second Road are full of small money exchange shops, some belong to banks while others are non-bank exchange houses. Exchange rates across these money change shops vary too, sometimes significantly. I have seen USD buying rate for currency notes of 50-100 denomination at 29.75 in one shop and 30.58 in another nearby shop at almost the same time. These rates are not negotiable unless one is exchanging money in excess of 1000 USD. Also, it would not be possible for a tourist to go around checking exchange rates in all the shops. Fortunately, I have found possibly the best money exchange shop in Pattaya. It is actually a chain of money exchange shops called T. T. Money Exchange. There are several on Beach Road (one very close to Walking Street) and I spotted at least one on Second Road. There are likely to be more around. The name of the money changer is not written on many of these shops so one needs to recognize them only from the color of the signage - Yellow and Black cross like pattern (see pictures below). Buying rates of major currencies like USD, EUR, AUD, HKD, etc. are shown on paper slips pasted on the glass window in the front. Comparing these rates with even one other shop from a different establishment will be enough to tell the difference. Like I mentioned above, I saw USD buying rate of 29.75 on another shop and 30.58 on T. T. Money Exchange within a gap of 2 minutes. Even if one is not changing money at T. T., their rates can be used as a benchmark to compare rates at another establishment and negotiate with them. (See shop pictures below...) Best Money Changer in Bangkok (Link opens in new window)
