US$ Travellers cheques -> US$ cash in Bangkok

Posted by krisim on 11/2/2010 at 17:30

Hi, we're heading into Myanmar next week and were wondering about the best (cheapest) way of getting US$ cash before we leave from Bangkok.

We have a pile of US$ travellers cheques - does anyone have any experience of converting these into US$ cash in Bangkok? We're assuming that they'll double convert them (first to Baht and then to US$), but maybe there is somewhere that will just convert them for a small commission?

Thanks in advance

In the past when I've done that the exchange has always insisted to THB first then a re-exchange to USD.
