Bank/Money Changer near Ramada

Hi

We are travelling to Khao Lak in May and staying at the Ramada. Can someone advise where the nearest bank or money changer is?

Thanks in advance.

The nearest bank is the TMB branch on the highway opposite and down from the 711 but I wouldn't use it as the rates of exchange are poor compared to other banks. There are money changers on the beach road, nearest being next to the Smile Cocktail Bar (turn left when you come from the road from the Ramada opposite Pinoccio's Pizzeria). There is an ATM at the 711 but best to wait until you go down to Bang La On, about 10 mins by taxi, as there are branches of all the main banks and plenty of ATMs there.

if it's only a few dollars the money changers in the beach road are convenient, but they do vary, so look at a few

but for a serious lot of cash head down to bang la on

the rate at the kasikorn/ siam bank is significantly better

plus if you ride down on one of the ramadas free pushbikes you can stop off at the cold drink shop.....

If the bike rides don't get you, the Thai massage will!!! Yes, and they smile while they inflict the pain! LOL

Any of the massage places will give you a "strong" massage if you ask for it. Kinaree up the beach road in Bang Niang on your left near the top is very good and the lass there certainly has very strong fingers!
