Forex booths in Bophut?

We're going to be staying in the Anantara resort in Bophut. Advice has been not to change money in hotels. Is there a Forex booth nearby? Thanks

There is one across the road from the front entry to the Anantara and a few in Fishermans Village proper.

hi guys

going out to the main road from your hotel ,turn left

along a few hundred metres[on your right] is a yellow bank [KRUNGSRI]

they will exchange your money at a good rate

there are other banks as well who will all exchange for you

always you can compare rates before you change

this bank is my local bank and we get a great service

there are many ATM s on samui where you can withdraw money with your card [if you have one ]

in the village you will find exchange booths as well

some hotels offer ok rates but of course you need to check

cheers

Hi

As said above there are a few bank booth in your area. The forex booth are mainly bank own. There for no matter where the booth are if the same bank you will get the same rate. The rate do go and down daily. The exchange rate from different bank are not significant usually between 1-2 baht different. If you don't change big sum is not worth to walk further or taxi to just get to specific bank.

As Melbourntravel says there are acroos from anantara and the front entry of fisherman village ( the bank with Forex attached).

Cheers,

Thanks all. Sorting out all the practicalities now. Will probably have more questions for forum as holiday gets nearer. Only about 6 weeks to go.

Very excited.
