Money & costs

Money

Branches of major banks are on Lebuh Pantai and Lebuh Downing, near the main post office, and most have 24-hour ATMs.

At the northwestern end of Lebuh Chulia, there are numerous moneychangers open longer hours than the banks and with more competitive rates. Moneychangers are also scattered around the banks on Lebuh Pantai and at the ferry terminal, although you’ll probably get better rates on the mainland from the moneychangers at the Butterworth taxi and bus station.
