Should I buy Thai Baht now or wait?


There’s never a perfect time to convert Sterling to Thai Baht, as exchange rates constantly rise and dip. It can be a good idea to change GBP to Thai Baht sooner rather than later, so you can lock in your rate and get on with planning your trip.

When you exchange your travel money ahead of time, you won’t have to search for an ATM or deal with poorer exchange rates when you arrive. You'll also avoid foreign transaction fees on your card.


Which countries use the Thai Baht?


THB is issued by the Bank of Thailand[1] and remains a sole currency you can’t use elsewhere. However, some of Thailand’s neighbours accept Baht in cities and tourist hotspots. These include Malaysia, Laos and Cambodia.

Baht coins and banknotes


Thai Baht is one of the world’s oldest currencies, dating back to the 13th century. It’s one of the most stable units of exchange on the Southeast Asian market, making it particularly desirable for foreign trade[2]. A single Baht is divided into 100 satangs. Since the satang is so small, relative to other currencies, only 25 and 50 satang coins are currently in circulation. 1, 5 and 10 satang coins do exist, but are only used for the accounting system within banks. When you’re converting Pound to Thai Baht, count these coins:


  • 25 s
  • 50 s
  • ฿1
  • ฿2
  • ฿5
  • ฿10









Paper money — or “mai” — features striking green, blue, red, purple and pink etchings. Most notes carry a portrait of former King Bhumibol Adulyadej[3] as well as historic figures and locations[4]. Newer polymer bills depicting the new king, Maha Vajiralongkorn, were released in 2022[5]. Thai banknotes include:


  • ฿20
  • ฿50
  • ฿100
  • ฿500
  • ฿1000
