it’s worth considering how you’ll spend your money whilst abroad. If you do run out of spending money, you’ll need to withdraw cash with either your

Getting your head around the Currency The Thai Baht may not be a currency you’re familiar with. Following is a quick and easy guide to
understanding Thailand’s currency:
A Baht is divided into a 100 satang (Much like one pound is divided into 100 pence). Satang coins are available in denominations of one, five, ten,
twenty-five, fifty. Although it’s worth mentioning that one, five and ten satang are slowly being phased out; also many smaller shops may refuse these
smaller pieces of currency.
Bahts are available as both coin denominations – one, two, five and ten; and notes – 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1000. You may also spot an 80-baht note, this
note was issued in 2012 to commemorate Queen Sirikit’s 80th birthday.
Why the funny looks? All Thai baht bears the portrait of the king or a deceased family member. Because of this there are certain things you should avoid doing with
your Thai Baht:
Step on a rolling coin
Tear or write on a banknote
Step on a banknote
Put money in your back pocket
