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? Work it out;

One US Dollar is worth? One Euro Is Worth?
One UK Pound is worth? One Can Dollar is worth?
One AUS Dollar is worth? One NZ Dollar is worth?
