Money Thailand

The amount of spending money suggested is the minimum required to pay for your meals, drinks, optional excursions, entrance fees, airport taxes and tips. The amount you actually need of course depends on your own spending pattern; that is why souvenirs are not included.The amount we recommend is € 150-175 per week.

The Baht is the official currency of Thailand. The Baht comes in denominations of 1 000, 500, 100 , 50 and 20 baht notes. Coins come in denominations of 10, 5, 2, 1 and 0.5 and 0. 25 baht. British Pounds and Euro can usually be changed in the larger cities. There are ATMs in most sizeable towns and cities. These ATMs issue Baht.
Some more upmarket hotels and restaurants accept credit cards. In banks in the bigger cities you can withdraw cash with your credit card and change travellers cheques. We advise you to bring an ATM card and a mix of cash in US Dollars, Euros or Thai Baht as well as travellers cheques.
