I just came back from taipei.. And found out that the exchange rate that dbs gives for money withdrawal is better than the exchange rate i got here locally and what I saw over at the money exchangers there. The exchange rate I got for withdrawing from the atm over there was 22.19 with a $5 surcharge of course.
i think its better to change your money in taiwan.
cos the bank rates are higher. can change at the airport.
got quite a few money changers. the rates ARE DEFINITELY higher...
(else you have to go bank to change. but there are ALOT of banks in taiwan!)

then i'd rather people use their DBS mastercard/visa to purchase stuffs than to withdraw from atm.
cos the rate from DBS is higher than UOB. =x
i charged on 4th twice, and after checking the statement online, the rate is 22.0nt=s$1.
cos if say you withdraw money, you still have to pay for the surcharge of s$5. which i think its not worth for the high exchange rate. (meaning you pay back for the exchange rate which is rather ...)

and i think there's a limit one can withdraw.
