I crossed the border from Laos to Thailand a couple of days ago and now I'm staying in a cheap hotel in Thoeng in Chiang Rai Province with not quite enough baht left for the rent. But I do have some unused USD left.
Since I was last in Thailand, ATM fees have skyrocketed to a whopping 220 baht, which is more than a night's rent! I've read the fee is lower at AEON ATM's in Tesco Lotus shops, but there's not one in Thoeng.
I recall changing money in banks in Thailand is expensive and difficult. So I'd like to avoid that too.
Is there an actual money changer in Thoeng?
