Thai baht can be used in mainland Thailand and its surrounding islands. There are hundreds of islands to choose from in separate clusters, so your baht could take you from a tropical paradise in Phi Phi to buzzing cities like Bangkok and ancient temples in Phuket.
At the current rate, £1 will roughly equate to 37 Thai baht (฿), though this is always changing. You can review the current rates here.
Baht notes: ฿20, ฿50, ฿100, ฿500, ฿1,000
Baht/satang coins: ฿1, ฿2, ฿5 and ฿10 coins, and 25 and 50 satang coins
Did you know? It is considered offensive to ‘mistreat’ Thai bank notes as they contain images of the king. Stepping on a note or carrying one in your back pocket is frowned upon!
The cost of living and travelling in Thailand is generally very low, though you’ll find Bangkok and the southern islands a little more expensive. You can generally expect to pay:
Tipping is more of a courtesy than an expectation in Thailand, for example, taxi drivers may appreciate you rounding up your fares to the closest ฿10. In restaurants, 10% is a safe option, or a straight ฿100 for more upmarket eateries. Expect to negotiate with tuk tuk drivers!
No problem. We'll buy back any notes you have leftover at excellent rates, leaving you with more cash in your pocket (and a tidier desk drawer).
