Where to find money changer which offers the best rates?

I have a lot of friends telling me the money changer at Atria, Damansara Jaya and Mid Valley offers the best rate. Last year before I went for my trip, I surveyed at a lot of different money changer and finally i changed at Atria (beside the lift near KFC, ground floor). Yes, it's offering the best rate among others. You can even negotiate with them if you changed a lot. But one thing not so good is they don't have small change, it will be a bit troublesome if you carry all the big notes with you.

This year, I did survey around too. Finally yesterday, I went to Mid Valley to look see look see and guess what, it's true too. They are offering a better rate compared to others. Where is the money changer? Lower ground floor, beside the elevator. There's 2 money changer there, if you compared the both, both are offering the same rate, so either one will do. I'm happy that I changed my money there as i saved quite a lot, if i changed at the money changer around my place, wah seh. kena chop chop chop ler! And. they got small change! Great!

So if you are looking for a money changer? check out the Atria one, or the Mid valley ones for better rate!

What's the name of the money changer besides the elevator at Mid Valley & contact number also if u have.Thanks

hey there, i don't have the number or the shop name, but it's very easy to find. You go find the KFC/San Francisco, and the money changer is just beside KFC. there's 2 there, you can check the price with both of them before you change.

Thanks for the tips and seem like many of them are talking about these two money changers offer best rate in town. Whenever I passed by always is crowded now I know why.
