Buying with your baht
The Thai baht has been the official currency of Thailand since 1897, although it is thought to have been in circulation since as early as the 1400s. The currency originated as a unit of weight of corresponding value and coins were originally denominated by weight.
When you first arrive, make sure you have some 5 and 10 baht coins to hand so you can get the best price possible for your taxi – if they see that you don’t have anything smaller than a 50 baht note, they may try to charge you more.
Tipping isn’t really expected in Thailand, except for the service charge you often find in restaurants and hotels. In that instance, you are safe rounding up to the nearest 20 baht.
Frequently used banknotes
Baht is among the ten most used currencies in the world, and each single baht consists of 100 satang, though most Thai sellers don’t tend to trade in satang. The most commonly used banknotes are for 20 (green), 50 (blue), 100 (red), 500 (purple) and 1000 (brown) baht.

I have no hesitation in recommending …
I have no hesitation in recommending Travelex when buying foreign currency online. Pick up points from Australia Post and or Travelex offices/agencies make it convenient for most people. I strongly recommend that you make purchases online as I have found from past experience that the rates are better than direct with Travelex shop front agencies.Rita
