Bill-Some of the money exchangers also have these machines...like Thomas Cook did here at home. Plus some overseas do too.As for my Singapore situation, I had exchanged money early in the trip and thoses bills passed the test. However, I was a bit short on cash by the time I checked out of the hotel so that's why I tried to exchange a little money at the hotel...just to pay the bill. The exchange rate, at the hotel, wasn't that much different from the rate at exchange places in town. But, I never even thought that the bills would be rejected.All of the bills for my entire trip had come out of the same Wells Fargo bank...here at home.And they were crisp bills. Happy Travels!

Guenmai-thats odd, oh well no approach is without some pitfalls. In KL I had to go to a bank to exchange some of my bills because they were old and a bit tattered and the moneychangers refused to take them.
