Money & costs


For exchange, ask at your hotel or guesthouse; banks aren’t much help. Moneychangers are found at Charahi Torabaz Khan or in the market around Pul-e Khishti Mosque. Look for the small stands with piles of money. There are also some moneychangers around the taxi stands of Serai Shomali motor park.
