Thailand Currency

Currency

1.00 THB = €0.020, €1.00 = 38.98 THB

Thailand uses the Thai baht (symbol: ฿), code THB.

Banknotes come in denominations of 1000, 500, 100, 50 and 20 baht. Baht is subdivided into 100 satangs. Coins come in denominations of 10, 5, 2 and 1 bahts and 50, 25, 10, 5 and 1 satangs.

Coins can become worthless when you leave a country

Coins can be hard or simply impossible to change back to euro when you leave a country. Before leaving, spend them (on postcards, a newspaper, or food or drink for the train ride), change them into banknotes, or give them away.

Exchange back to your currency at the end of trip

If you have some bahts left at the end of your trip, change it to euro at the airport or simply spend it at the airport before you fly home.

All currency in Thailand has a portrait of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej or a deceased relative. Therefore DO NOT EVER step on a coin or Thai banknote to stop it from rolling/blowing away. DO NOT throw a note or coin towards another person. DO NOT tear, burn or otherwise damage a note or coin. These acts can been perceived as disrespectful toward His Majesty The King and may be considered highly offensive to any Thai person.
