Maumere Tourist Traps

  • tanamay's Profile Photo

    by tanamay Updated Oct 23, 2014

    We had a stopover in Bali where we have USD exchanged to Rupiah at the Bank Branch right in the airport at IDR 11,500 = 1 USD, it is better than the money changers in the same airport.

    In Maumere three banks (BNI, BRI & Mandiri) offers IDR 10,000 = 1 USD. When asked why is it lower than official bank rates, the bank said few people buy USD in Maumere and they have to sell their dollar in Bali.

    Unique Suggestions: Change your foreign currency in Bali Ngurah Rai airport bank branch (if you are passing Bali).

    Fun Alternatives: Or,
    Ask around Maumere, people knows where to get good rates.
    Our driver brought us to a Chinese-owned drugstore and we got a good rate @ IDR 11,000 per.
    I forgot the drugstore name and the driver does not know the street name, also.
