Foreign Currency Exchange at Patong Beach

There are heaps of Foreign Exchange offices throughout Patong Beach which offer good exchange rates to exchange your foreign money to Thai Baht. Just be careful when changing money at the foreign exchange offices close to Bangla Road late at night. When exchanging money, especially when the cashier thinks (or knows) you have been drinking they tend to forget to handover all the Baht that you have exchanged. When you pick up on this they just smile and say sorry. Very nice of them.
