Its always fun to know the best money exchange place in a tourist destination. It saves money not just for me but also for my readers because that is the purpose of this blog. Thus, it was only natural that one of the first things that I set out to do during my first visit to Chiang Mai was to find the best place to change money. This place not only had to have pre-declared exchange rates like on a display board but also have reliable customer service and a convenient location. I found all of that and more in Super Rich Money Exchange Chiang Mai. They not only offered the best exchange rates in town, but had outlets in both the areas where tourist mostly stay in Chiang Mai – Near Night Bazaar (Loi Kroh Road connecting night bazaar street with the moat that surrounds old city) and the Old City itself near Thapae Gate. You will find location details and map in this page later. Super Rich Money Exchange also has a name sake on Loi Kroh Road that you may want to avoid so I will show a picture of that too below. Coming back to the original, Super Rich Money Exchange Chiang Mai opens everyday from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm officially but unofficially they may open a bit late in the morning and remain open upto 9.00 pm. Their exchange rates are close to what you will get at Super Rich Thailand in Bangkok or T.T. Currency Exchange in Pattaya.
Super Rich Money Exchange at Loi Kroh Road Chiang Mai
The picture that you see above is that of their location at Loi Kroh Road. Let us call this Super Rich 1. To get here, you need to start on Night Bazaar Street in the middle of Burger King and McDonalds. A road from there goes towards the moat. This road is called Loi Kroh Road and has two hotels on either side at the beginning – Hotel Suriwongse and Hotel Le Meridien. Walk a little towards the old city moat and you will find Super Rich Money Exchange on the left side of the road. To get a fair idea of what kind of money exchange rates you should be getting, you may like to see the Online Money Exchange Rates of Super Rich (Thailand).
Super Rich Money Exchange Near Thapae Gate Chiang Mai
Super Rich Money Exchange’s second location is inside Thapae Gate in the old city. You need to enter Old City through Thapae Gate, take the first or second right turn. Super Rich 2 is located on a road parallel to the main road through which you entered old city. Please see the location map above and find the spot marked Super Rich 2. In both the locations you get super friendly customer service and of course the best exchange rates in town.
A Third Location?
The official website of Super Rich Chiang Mai mentions a third location too, though the address is not clear. You may like to visit this website of theirs: http://superrichchiangmai.com/index.php
Another Super Exchange on Loi Kroh Road Chiang Mai
This one is called Super Exchange Authorized Money Changer and has sign boards similar to the ones you will see at Super Rich (1965) in Bangkok. As far as the rates go here, their exchange rate for 100 USD bills was comparable to Super Rich Money Exchange but the rates for all other currencies and denominations were really bad. So, unless I have a USD 100 Dollar note to exchange, I will avoid going to Super Exchange. Anyway the real one – Super Rich Money Exchange is just a few steps away.
