Hi ronal60p,

If you are in the city, then I suggest you go to the Arcade at Raffles Place (on top of Raffles Place MRT station). There are many moneychangers there so the rates are quite competitive. If you do go there, avoid lunch hours of between 11:30am to 2:30pm.

Cheers!

If U need Singapore Dollar On Arrival (For Taxi etc Or U can even change all there) , there are atleast 3 Bank Currency Exchange Counter outside the Arrival Hall.

Otherwise, U can change them all in tons of Money Changer all over town.

If U are staying on orchard Road, go Lucky Plaza & walk thru the many Money Changer & compare rate before changing.

If U are staying around the Marina Bay / City Hall area, take MRT to Raffles Place & go to The Arcade (Famous money changer alley)

Below are exchange rate from some of the Money Changer in SG:

Unless you are changing many hundreds of dollars - the difference between the rate adds up to not much - so maybe just change at the airport.
