The Thai unit currency is the baht, divided into 100 satangs. Notes are in denominations of 1,000 (grey), 500 (purple), 100 (red), 50 (blue), and 20 (green). There are also coins of 25 satang, 50 satang, 1 baht, 2 baht, 5 baht and 10 baht.

Major currency bills and traveler’s checks are cashed easily at hotels, tourist shops, all provincial banks, shopping centers and moneychangers. Traveler’s checks are best changed in banks (you will need your passport). Rates of exchange at banks or authorized moneychangers are better than those at hotels and department stores.

Any amount of foreign currency may be brought into the country. Visitors may take foreign currency out of Thailand but no more than the amount stated in the customs declaration made on arrival. Travelers leaving Thailand may take out no more than 50,000 baht per person in Thai currency.
