Just bought some British Pounds at 5.16 at the Atria ground floor money changer. Have been exchanging money there for all my overseas trip.

Anyone knows whr can get lower rates for Hong Kong dollars?
yesterday when I went to MidValley,the board is showing 46.4 for $100.

but I can recommend one License Money Changer which I personally found that the rates given by them are considerably cheap.

Viet Dong is not a popular currency here. I would suggest you to convert USD and change them into Dong in Vietnam. Popular places to buy Dongs in Vietnam are the goldsmiths.

I think nobody can answer you...
coz nobody can predict the exact exchange rate so its more advisable to change a little each mth..
it may increase a lot next year or it may also drop a lot next year..
i rather it drop then increase.. coz if increase i have to pay a lot more but if drop at least i dont need to pay much more..
so my advise is buy now..but its really up to u to decide

Yes. They are the cheapest currently but there are few or more that can match him. I found out another Money Changer in Sg Wang Plaza (Not the one recommended by others here) located in the mid row of LG level. (Libra Jaya). Their rate actually exactly the same as Wawasan. (I compare Wawasan rate b4 going there y'day to change US$.

The advantage of Libra Jaya compare to Wawasan is they allow changing to smaller denomination. Even if u ask for smaller US$1 notes, they will give!! This is not the case in Wawasan...always give big denomination!! So for those wanted similar rate to Wawasan but needs smaller denomination....Sg Wang Libra Jaya is another alternative...(This round I din chk the money changer closer to the entrance. Previously they are pretty expensive compare wth Libra...)

Hello.

I know nothing about currency exchange and i'll travel to australia soon (june). This forum help me a lot.

1. I want to know other charges or commission that money changer might charge when we change currency?

2. I do some quick research (MYR to AUD)

In Malaysia, Maybank sell 2.566 and buy 2.432
Wawasan sell 2.520 and buy 2.490

In Brisbane airport, Travelex use 2.3310

- My Question, Which one is better? I see Wawasan offer a good price. But Travelex is better. Can you advice me whether to convert here or when i reach brisbane? Any other recommendation?

N.B.: AUD a bit higher now (about 2.50 on 20/3/09) compare to mid of Feb to early of mac. at that time 1 AUD play around 2.34 to 2.42 MYR.

Thanks
