    NZ dollars exchange in Bkk?

    Never been before, is it best to use ATM there to get cash from UK bank, or would it be better to exchange a lot of baht here in Bkk and take that? Also do they check how much cash a Thai has at NZ immigration, the mrs will be with me but I thought they might ask if she has some sort of minimum in cash?

    Best bet don't change money in NZ or OZ, ATMs in immigration hall here, if you have to change, do it in BKK airport. Better rate here but just bring NZ dollars,

    It works out better to change baht to sterling at Vasu or super rich in Bangkok than it does anywhere in the UK

    Never change money outside of Thailand, thieving banks and government in OZ and NZ all want a take.
    Think last time we went to OZ it was a 4 Baht difference, Thailand 30 Baht one OZ dollar, OZ 34 Baht on dollar.
    Same same credit cards and atm withdrawals, take cash or travelers cheques. Jim

    It used to be a money changer in Pratunam, but my info is old like me, but definitely don't change in OZ airport and and assume NZ is the same.
    The Travex places screw you on rate and then charge commission.
    I have found at the airport in Bangers is reasonable on reasonable rate and no commission.
    But you will get a better rate on Balders suggestion if you are seeking the last baht.

    Don't worry about it. Just use THB, it's commonly used in NZ, most places will accept it.
    Are you going to meet Ant?

    The charges on changing money here in Fremantle are extortionate. Taking the piss out of tourists big time.

    Exchange before landing, imagine NZ is the same.

    The main branch of super rich usually offers the best rates. You can check them all here: Superrich ?????? ??????????? 1965 ????? - ?????????? ?????????????????

    Actually it seems that the silom branch now has the same rates as well.
