Money exchange

Dear all,

Does anyone know if the money exchange in the Phuket airport still open around 9pm? Any other money exchange recommended in Phuket town?

Is it possible to get the SIM card around 9pm in the airport as well? Which telecom recommended? I need it to cover both Phuket and Bangkok for 2 weeks.

Thanks in advance,


Phuket Town...

Exchanges will defineatley be open but rate is not as good as outside Airport unless you go to Superrich at Domestic Terminal.

I use DTAC for mobile, not sure who is best these days.

The rate at the airport might be a little lower than in town but it should be better than what you get back home.

Rates are not fixed. Below is a link for exchange rates. There are many posts for changing money. There are posts for how to handle your money and how to use ATMs too. (No old currency, no torn or dirty currency, stick with big denominations too.) Use a laptop or other big screen computer and do a forum search. Read the FAQs on the side too.

Thanks guys, more comfy to hear about that. It would be fine as long as I can get some money for taxi to the hotel.
