Well that is if I manage to get ringgits! They are near impossible to get at the foreign exchanges in Dubai! Has any body been - any recommendations? I fly out Sunday!

Can you not just use your atm card to withdraw local currency while you are there?

ah great, now ive that whistling tune stuck in me head
and if it is just small amounts that you need then the ATM withdrawls wont hurt too much but for large amounts they will cost a lot as the wanks (w=b) are usually working at 10-15% below the current market exchange rate

Nice country. Has a lot to offer. Langkawi is well worth a shout as a place to go.
