We are planning a trip back to the Land of Smiles and possibly Viet Nam before travelling on the way to Myanmar from Bangkok. Most in country guides or in country tour companies in Myanmar require cash in USD upon arrival. Since that would be our last country to visit, we are not comfortable carrying a lot of USD cash prior to arriving in Myanmar. Please do not suggest a pre-pay in the US prior to departing the US as we wish to use a local guide or tour company. We are not soliciting suggestions for guides nor tour companies either, just advise on the best and safest way to obtian USDs in Bangkok.
Is it possible to convert or purchase a large amount of USD in Bangkok without paying a fortune in transaction fees? What would be the best way to do this? Thank you.
