Unlike the way it is in busy cities across Southeast Asia, there are not many independent currency exchange shops in Vientiane. You can find only a few, which mostly choose to settle down near commercial areas like the Morning Market.

Although they are not popular, their rates are quite good. Some of them occasionally offer rates slightly better than the bank service units’ so it is best to make a comparison before exchanging any large amount.
