Money Changer in Vang Vieng

Hi everybody

If anyone could help - i was wondering whether there are any money changer around Vang Vieng town with reasonable/good rates. We will be heading to Vang Vieng straight once we arrive at the Vientiane International Airport. I am not sure whether to change it at Vientiane Airport (usually airport have poor rates) or to change it once i arrive in Vang Vieng.

renangautier; if you look at the map you'll find the Bakery then Riverside Tours, the Bank-Exchange is next to these.

From what I remember the rate is fair.

Why wouldn't you just use an ATM for the best rates and a guarantee you won't get shorted or passed bad notes?

Just change at a bank. Rates are pretty much the same.

You can change at a bank kiosk at the airport - the rate has been stable at very close to 8000kip/1USD for a couple of years now.

Alternatively in VV I always use Malany Travel exchange kiosk - they use bank rates for USD.
