ATMs and Travellers Cheques exchange in Thian Og Bay area

Hi,

This maybe a silly question but are there any ATMs/travellers cheques exchange places around the Thian Og Bay/Chalok area?

From what I have read I am assuming that it is unlikely and that all ATMs/banks/Forex etc will be in Mae Head and Sairee?

Any guidance would be much appreciated!

Thank you

There are no ATM or banking facilities in Thian Og bay at all, the nearest stop for cash withdrawal is Chalok. There are no walk in bank facilities or western union money exchanges in Chalok that we are aware of though.

There are several walk in banks for exchanging money and also plenty ATM's in Mae Haad. There are also numerous ATM's in Sairee, as well as 2 western union outlets for changing money.

You may find that the bigger resorts in Chalok may offer an exchange service, or may at least be able to recommend an agent nearby. If you just use a regular travel agency, you are unlikely to get the best daily rates though.

Hope this helps.
