Best Money Changers in Bangkok

Money Exchange options are aplenty in Bangkok starting from the exchange counters located in the arrival areas of Suvarnabhumi or Don Muang Airports. But that does not mean that all money exchange places give you the same value for the currency that you are carrying. The exchange counters at the airports in Thailand or in any other country for that matter usually offer very bad exchange rates for any currency. There is an easy way to check how much premium you are being made to pay for exchanging one currency into another. For example if you are planning to exchange USD into THB, just go to a search engine and type ‘usd thb rate’ in lower case without quotes and press enter. The search engine will show you the current inter-bank rate at the top of the page. Compare this rate with what the exchange counter at the airport is offering you. The result may shock you. At New Delhi’s IGI Airport T3, the banks and Thomas Cook exchange counters charge a premium of roughly 10% over the inter-bank rates for selling you a foreign currency. When they buy a foreign currency from you, they buy at a discount of roughly 10%. Its a great business for them but for a tourist, it just makes the holiday more expensive by 10%. Exchange shops at the airports in Thailand do not charge 10% premium but if you compare Bangkok airport exchange rates with the best money exchange rates in Bangkok city, you will see quite a difference. So, if you must buy some THB at an airport in Thailand, buy just enough to pay for the Visa and initial expenses. Once in Bangkok city, you can get the best money exchange rates by going to the right places that I reveal in this page.

Best Money Exchange Rates in Bangkok

In terms of best exchange rates, there are two best money changers in Bangkok. The best one is called Super Rich (Thailand) and the second best is Super Rich 1965. Let us read about both of them.

Super Rich (Thailand)

Super Rich Thailand (Head Office 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. 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 5.00pm. 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.

Super Rich (Thailand) Locations

Super Rich Thailand has more outlets in Bangkok, a list of which is given later in this article. They even have one counter at Suvarnabhumi Airport, on Level B in the Airport Link train area.

Getting to Super Rich Thailand is easy. You can either get down at Chit Lom, Siam, or Ratchadamri BTS Skytrain stations. Ask someone for directions to Big C. It is walking distance from all the three stations but Siam and Chit Lom are closer. Going from Chit Lom/Ratchadamri/Siam station, you will reach Big C as in the above picture. Walk past Big C and at the next main turn go right and again ask someone for Super Rich (Thailand). It is very close from there.

Changing Money At Other Places in Bangkok

Money exchange shops and counter can be found everywhere in Bangkok and I know it will not always be possible for you to go to Super Rich (Thailand). If you are forced to change money elsewhere, just try to compare the exchange rates being offered to you with the Online Rates of Super Rich (Thailand). That way at least you will know how much extra premium you are paying.
