Say, you live near Woodlands Checkpoint. You travel to Malaysia at a weekly basis. You even proclaim it as your second home. And why not?The shopping there is great. You always get the best deals. What stuns you is that the clothes over there are almost half cheaper than the ones in Singapore. Because you want to save as much moolah as you can, you are constantly looking for the best currency converter stores. But before that, where do you go to when you need to check the exchange rate? Google? Or perhaps DBS, POSB Banking Services? Speaking of DBS and POSB, were you affected when the services were disrupted for approximately 30 minutes around noon on October 16th 2013? According to the bank, the outage was caused by a system connectivity issue. Areas such as Choa Chu Kang and Eunos were affected. Luckily, the issue has since been restored.
To get right back to the subject, the exchange rate is always changing. A lot of people prefer going to the currency stores in Orchard. After doing a background check, we found out that the rates are much more higher. However, given the fact that Orchard is a city area, it is a requirement for citizens to spend extra cash for transportation. Know what this means? By doing a simple calculation, you will realise this takes the fun out of life.
Old Woodlands Town Centre
This is the nearest area to get your dollar notes changed. There are many currency stores in Old Woodlands Town Centre. Take a walk around the area and see it for yourself which offers the best deal. It’s one of the places to get the best exchange rates between the Singapore dollar and Malaysia Ringgit. The area will be demolished in 2016, which will no doubt cause inconvenience to travel buffs.
Sembawang Shopping Centre
It’s not the best shopping malls in Singapore, definitely. It may be well furnished and air conditioned but the mall is filled with unattractive stores. There is nothing appealing about it. Actually, scratch that. The currency converter store located at basement 1 has great exchange rates. Ever Victory Money Changer might be the next best thing.
People’s Park Complex Chinatown
In addition to currency converter stores, People’s Park is also home to jewerly shops and travel agencies. The currency converter stores are really popular among the Chinese. It can get awfully crowded, but well worth the visit.
