Will be visiting Kota Kinabalu in November and would appreciate advice as to Money Changers and their address in the city. Will be changing Australian Dollars. What exchange rate can I expect?
Also visiting Sandakan, any advice as to where money changers are located in the town.
Appreciate all advice.
Wisma merdeka and Centrepoint malls have quite a few money changers; I think Suria Sabah does as well, but as that is the luxury mall, the rate might not be as good.
Not sure about Sandakan; I would assume there are changers, but I didn't notice any.

I changed my money at Wisma merdeka in KK. There are quite a few changers there. Not sure if it has the best rates there, but unless you're changing thousands, the difference is minimal.
