money changers are not as prolific in thailand as they are in cambodia and often your only options will be the thai banks. their rates are good check online as they have their rates posted and updated at least daily
difference is going to probably be less that the taxi fare to the money changer no matter where you do it

have seen money changer rates posted in cambodia for this exchange that are better than the minimal exchange rate differential of the thai banks. money changers in thailand also have to beat the banks to stay in business. they may be posted online too, but you still got to find them and physically go there and back



untrue, very very seldom ( if u look like a bum or hipster ;) and are entering on a visa exempt they might ask for to see 20,000 baht ( in ANY currency)
There are millions of money changers, exchange places in every area that has tourist, plus banks all have exchange counters outside the bank,
If u only have Riel change in Cambodia, if u have $$ change in thailand
DO make sure u have some thai baht to pay for ur cab to ur hotel as the exchange rate at the airport sucks

why am i now based in cambodia and not thailand?

:help:
who cares, Thailand does not want nor need those that cant get the right visa to stay here. see how long u make it in Cambodia...

Superrich usually has the best rates..https://www.superrichthailand.com/#!/en/exchange

thailand only wants those who are desperate enough to put up with the shit that thai immigration dishes out. if the cap fits wear it. perhaps you should change your name to "rabid hoop jumpa" Image
yes i had a makeover

Yes, they need democracy too, all we need is for the big guy to wave a gun around in public and away we go.

Loads of money changers near bigger Khmer markets in PP who will change $ to baht at very competitive rates.
