    You can change it from most money changers. Don't worry to much about the rate unless you are changing really big amount. i have a friend who goes about town looking for the 'best rates' trying to save 5 cents. He doesn't realise that the mrt/bus fare he incurs is more than that.

    try airport after you check in, BTW 24 hrs and rates there are better than in town. Beware many fake RMB, safer to change in Airport

    hmm, sometimes it does make different....
    I used to change some NZD around People Park Complex (or Center?),
    there's lots of foreign exchange around that area.
    I think since it's so competitive, rate must be better than FE at other area.
    So I just compare exchange rate in between these FE, and choose the best one...
    Later I realise that FE at Bugis Junction's just simply got better rate

    Correct me if I'm wrong
    From my understanding, normally FE at town got better rate than FE at airport,
    not only in Singapore, also apply to other cities....

    You are right. The rates in the Airport are usually less favourable. If I need to change foreign currency after the normal opening hours of the money changes, I head for Mustafa...

    You can try the money changes in Orchard Road, Tanglin, China town etc, but remember to compare the rates. It may vary quite a bit.
