It's best to change your Ringgit to US Dollar when traveling to the Philippines so you can change it to Philippine Pesos.

There are a lot of money changers in Angeles City especially around the Balibago area where there's a high concentration of foreigners. But according to my balikbayan friends, the best rate is given at the currency exchange at any SM department store where there is usually a long line.

In Manila, since your shuttle drops you at SM megamall, you can have your dollar changed there before the SM Department Store closes at 9pm. Their currency exchange is always located at the ground floor of

the department store.

I also read on another thread recently suggesting the ATM machine too, I think it's on a thread aabout Cebu City.
