The currency used in Bangkok is called Baht and it is written as ฿. If you are planning to travel to Bangkok, check out with your tour planner on the places to visit in Bangkok. You would need to exchange your money to Bangkok money or Thai Baht .
You don’t need to spend a lot of money in Thailand . If you’re backpacking Thailand , plan to budget between 825–1150 BHT ($25–35 USD) per day .
A budget of 2,500 to 5,000 baht per day is enough to stay in a three or four star hotel, eat at most of Bangkok’s mid range and high-end restaurants and easily get around the city by taxi instead of depending on the BTS, khlong boats and bus system.
1,000 baht a day is a lot more than the minimum wage (in the formal job market and way way more than up country) in Thailand. Few people would come Thailand to holiday as a poor Thai.
Online Prices Can range from 1000 – 1500 Baht Short time. Long time Add 500- 1000 Baht . The online method is also a great way to find a holiday Thai girlfriend for a few days or weeks at a time.
A nostalgic, glass bottle of Coke costs around 15 baht . A large bottle of Thai Chang beer can be found in restaurants around Khao San Road / Soi Rambuttri for under 90 baht . 7-Eleven price for a large bottle of beer is usually less than 60 baht .
While you can use U.S. dollars and some other major currencies in some countries, they’re not widely accepted in Thailand . You will need to exchange any other currency you are carrying for baht.
You will get your best exchange rate in Thailand . There is NO reason to bring any Thai baht with you to Thailand ! Stores and hotels usually have a lower exchange rate than the many bank money changers. My preference is to keep a credit card for emergencies and use cash, travelers checks and debit cards in Thailand .
Well, it depends on your habits, but for us, 3,000 baht per day (average over the trip) well and truly covered us for meals, drinks, massages, tours and lots of shopping. Oh, and how much shopping you do too. And yes, you can easily halve that and still have a great time.
Tipping is NOT customary in Thailand , there is absolutely NO mandatory requirement to tip anyone, but small gratuities for great service are very much appreciated. In all restaurants it is customary to leave behind any loose change in coins as a tip .
Banks or private money changers offer the best foreign- exchange rates . When buying baht , US dollars is the most accepted currency, followed by British pounds and euros. Most banks charge a commission and duty for each travellers cheque cashed.
Changing pounds or dollars in a currency exchange office on almost any street in Thailand gives you a better rate than most anywhere else. Airport rates are lower, don’t exchange all your cash at the airport. You will get a better exchange rate in Thailand than in your home country, almost without exception.
Contrary to popular belief, though, street food in Thailand (and many other countries) is no riskier than restaurants . When you eat on the street , you’re more likely to be served fresh food and to get to see it being prepared, both of which go a long way toward keeping you healthy.
