Thai Currency / Foreign Exchange
Their currency is the Thai Baht. It comes, typically, in 20, 50, 100,
500 and 1000 baht bank note denominations. And 1, 5 and 10 baht
coins. Although, you may find a few lower denominations such as
the 10 baht bank note. But these are being phased out since the
Asian economic crisis of the late 90's.
A single dish
in a Thai restaurant (for locals) or food stall will range in cost,
but 10 baht will get you a meal of rice and sauce. A dish in a modest,
but more notable Thai restaurant for tourists and Thais themselves
will cost around 50 to 80 baht, with plain rice around 10 baht.
A small beer (heavily taxed) in a small restaurant will cost around
50 to 60 baht. A bus ride to the nearest main town (even if it is
an hour away), about 20 to 30 baht. How much is that in real money?
