Currency Exchange in Kuala Lumpur

HI,

I am traveling to KL next week and was wondering whether i should get the currency exchange done here in India or come to KL and do it at the airport?

I will land at the airport ( LCCT) at around 10 pm. Will the currency exchange counters be open?

Please advice

Thanks

Have a look at this recent thread.

I don't know what exchange rate you will get in Inida but money changers in KL tend to operate very close to listed exchange rates

If at all you want to change in KL, then Midvalley Mall and some changers inside Sungei wang give a good rate. Sunway pyramid was where I got the best rates last time around.

LCCT is more expensive by the way from the KL city, like most airports generally are.

There are currency exchange counters open at the LCCT. We arrived at 2am and they were open.

Just exchange enough to get you by until you get to your hotel. The exchange at the airport is only minimally less than you'll get outside.

As a rule of thumb, you will get the best rates in the country whose currency you are buying.

Hi lonelysteps, yep, the bureau de change at LCCT is 24/7.

You have two in the restricted area,after the baggage carousel on your way out to customs- Bank Islam, Kuwait Finance House.

Then on your way to taxi berth-- Hong Leong Bank.
