    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.
