    Where to exchange Baht to Sterling?

    Hi Guys,

    We have got quite a baht (over100k) and are going back to the UK soon, where is the best place to exchange it and should I have any problems from customs etc carrying that amount of GBP on the plane.

    Anyone got any experience on this??

    Cheers,
    Paul

    ^Agree with MtD. No issues with Sterling on the plane. Super Rich will normally give you 50's as well...

    I am not sure, for Baht to Euro the rate is much worse in Germany than in Thailand.

    If you are in Pattaya, Bank Gold on soi Rungland off Pattaya Tai will change any amount of baht for you into foreign currency no questions asked, also you get the best rates there.
