Cashing in Rupiah
Hey, is it easy enough to change Indonesian Rupiah into Thai Baht in Thailand?
Most of the kiosks and banks in Bali seem to change only other currencies into Rupiah but not the other way around. Don't know whether to spend it all before leaving or not.

yeah, it's really easy to exchange Rupiah to Bath in Thailand,,
there is many KIOSK and Bank want to do this,,
but the rate is really suck, it will be a good idea if you exchange your Rupiah to USD in Indonesia, and then exchange the USD to Bath in Thailand,
hope my answer can help you

while this topic is already getting a little old, I just want to second what TOURTRAVELS said.
never bring local currency from one country in South-East-Asia to another country there (except for SG$ which always produce good rates).
Change into Euro or US$ and then change again.
Otherwise you may easily lose 30-40% of the actual value of your money if you try to change, for example: Rupiah or PHP into Thai Baht upon arrival at Suvannabhumi Bangkok.
Exception: At sea-/Land-borders you can usually get acceptable rates when travelling from one country to the other (f.e.: In Singapore for Rupiah, when arriving from Batam or Bintan by ferry)
