    is a money charger who offer unfavorable rates deemed to be dishonest?

    generally, i go to a place with at least 3 to 4 money changers within walking distance of one another. this way i can compare the rates. i usually ask 2 shops before going to the third shop to do exchange. the difference is going to be likely under 10cents. unless one is going to change in big amount like more than 5000. then the difference will add up. if one is changing anything less than 1000, then the difference is not going to be significant.

    remember that different money changers have different base rates and different operating costs. hence their quotes will differ.

    No, sorry - to clarify: i would think a money changer is dishonest if he tries to give you less than what you are supposed to get, or if you change an unfamiliar currency, and end up receiving notes that have already been withdrawn from circulation...

    Chinatown is not the best anymore. Try arcade(many money changer there) and the one at bugis (near the traffic light opposute bugis street).
