money in SEA

Posted by akirafro on 15/11/2010 at 14:19

Me and a friend are heading over to South East Asia in a couple of weeks, including Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia. We've been to Thailand once before and simply used our bank cards to withdraw money but we didn't realise that we'd get stuck with a hefty commission from the banks.
What would be the best options in the countries above when it comes to taking money??
Thanks, Akira
