Money & Costs

Money Exchange in Thailand

The Thai baht is a relatively easy currency for newcomers to become familiar with. With different-coloured notes in denominations of B1000, B500, B100, B50 and B20, as well as coins of B10, B5, B2 and B1, it is usually easy to have the right amount to hand. There are also tiny coins of 25 satang and 50 satang (quarter and half baht) that are rarely seen these days.


• At the budget end (staying in guesthouses, eating at street stalls, walking and visiting mostly free sights), you might be able to get away with about B750/person/day (around $25USD).

• A more average budget for most visitors (staying at standard hotels or B&Bs, eating in restaurants and paying for admission to sights), would be around double that, at B1500/person/day (around $50USD).

• Double that again and B3000/person/day (around $100USD) starts to buy a pretty high-end experience, with smart hotels, meals in fancy restaurants and taking taxis to visit the sights.
