There's a good one opposite the Koa Spa & Respati Hotel (good excuse to spend a couple of hours at the spa while you're there - it's heaven!)
Thank you. Cheers Kiwi
Dragon Branch, http://www.balibestrate.com/
Yes balibestrate is a safe & good place to exchange your money you will not be ripped off, the closes branch to Mercure Hotel is on Jl. Danau Poso it is just called Poso, a lot closer than Hardy's the current rate per NZ$ = RP8940.
I only use them. I use the dragon branch mentioned above.
I also use the Dragon branch mentioned above when in Sanur. They are honest & reliable.
I am coming from Canada.. is it better to exchange US$ there or does it matter if I just bring Canadian$ ?
toydajo, you can see the exchange rate for both currencies in the link I provided in post 3. It's generally better to bring your own currency to avoid losing twice on conversion
I've had no problems exchanging Canadian currency in the main tourist areas of Bali. However, I did need US cash when I was in Taipei (for a few days) on my return from Bali in 2014. So, you may need some US currency depending on where your connecting flight is, and whether you'll be staying there for any length of time. And best to exchange in Bali, and as little as possible to get started at the airport.
Thanks for the help folks. Ya I did change some here to speed things up at the airport, took a bath on it... lol
They really gouge us over here...
Hi. Thanks everyone for your suggestions, much appreciated. Will use either the Poso or Dragon branch, whichever we come across first when we out and about. Cheers Kiwi
