Money exchange

Hello,

We are staying at Santhiya end of September. Is it best to change euros before we arrive at Santhiya? Or is the rate ok on Koh Phangan? Maybe try to change at Petcherat Pier before getting on the speedboat?

You get a better rate of exchange in Thailand than in your home country. However, you will probably need some baht before you arrive at the pier and there are money exchanges in Bangkok Airport. The rates on Koh Phangan at the main bank exchanges are the same as in other parts of Thailand. Look here for the daily rates of exchange …daytodaydata.net/default.aspx

Thank you Arandora...we probably will not have enough time in Bangkok airport and I do not know if there will be a bank to reach at Thong nai pan, as it is a bit secluded...Does anyone know this perhaps?

If you are collecting your luggage at Bangkok Airport there is an exchange while you are waiting.

There is no bank in Thong Nai Pan so you are best doing it before you arrive. There should be an exchange counter at the Samui Airport.
