Where can you use the Thai baht?

It is the official currency of Thailand and can also be used in:

  • Laos

  • Cambodia

  • Myanmar

  • Kedah

The Thai baht has a currency symbol of ฿ and is abbreviated to BHT when traded on the foreign exchange market.

What notes and coins can you get?

A Thai baht is made up of 100 satang and uses the following denominations:

  • Satang coins: 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50

  • Baht coins: 1, 5 and 10

  • Baht notes: 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1,000

The 1, 5 and 10 satang coins are rarely found in circulation, and notes over ฿500 may be difficult to spend outside of larger city areas.

When you order online you will only get Thai baht notes delivered, not coins.

Using cards abroad

Though using physical cash can be convenient, it's worth noting that there are many benefits to using cards overseas too. You will be able to pay by card in major shopping malls and supermarkets in Thailand.

With cards you don't have to worry about the pound to euro exchange rates or risk carrying significant amounts of cash. The rate that your bank applies may also be better than those offered by currency exchange companies. While many banks charge fees for foreign transactions, there are some that do not.

When using cards abroad, always select to pay in the local currency as choosing your home currency will give you a worse exchange rate.
