Look at the folks queuing up for foreign currency exchange – People’s Park Complex seems to be a popular area to do foreign currency exchange. Just remember to check out the rates before committing. I usually do my foreign exchange at The Arcade or Mustafa (because of 24hr operation and online viewing of rates).
