Hi there,

I know this is two years back, but why didn't you try to change at centera mall (Bkk bank) or the money changer just outside the mall?

I used to change all my money to thai baht first in singapore before heading to udon, but now I realized that changing in udon (the two places mentioned above), the rates are better than that of singapore.

Hmmm. Correct me if I'm wrong. But I always change in thai after realizing that rates SG is lower than changing in thai. Unless the money changer I use in Sg is no good hahaha but I doubt so cause the rates difference is almost 0.6 points, can't be the money changer so lousy until like that, right? Hahaha.

Will check out this centera mall when I go back to Udon, anyway the rates at Khao San is good, but BKK airport rates are terrible, I think airport rates are usually terrible. I also remember the MBK rates also not that good, around 24+ during my last visit in 2016.
