I have tried all the major banks around the area and none are able to give me US dollars. I am crossing the border into Laos tomorrow and am struggling to get US dollars. Does anyone know where I can get it from, or if its easily available in Chiang Khong?
Try the Chiang Rai Bangkok Bank on Thanalai Road, Mueang. I have got USD from them about 3 months ago. Try here if you need a Chiang Rai Hotel http://www.search.ihotelthai.com/City/Chiang_Rai.htm about 6 years ago
