Bangkok Currency Guide
The currency used in Bangkok is the Thai Baht.
ATMs in Bangkok can be found throughout the city, particularly within the main shopping and nightlife strips. Most of these machines are operated by Cirrus or Plus and will have an English option available. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don't forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to check what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.
Before you leave home for Bangkok, don't forget to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Thai Baht to have with you when you arrive. Thai Baht are available to purchase from Travel Money OZ before your holiday.
If you'd like the security that a credit card offers while travelling without the risk of racking up debt, consider purchasing a prepaid travel money card. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ allows you to load your money in the form of Thai Bahts and other currencies onto the card. Your money can then be accessed at various ATMS and used wherever MasterCard® is accepted. The Multi-currency Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
