Thailand: how its currency compares

One of the reasons millions of tourists flock to Thailand every year is the favourable exchange rate. The Thai baht compares well with most European and North American currencies.

You’d normally pay an arm and a leg for stunning white beaches, picturesque countryside, fragrant cuisine and buzzing nightlife. Not so in Thailand. No wonder it’s one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations of the last decade.

It’s possible to get by on a budget of 700 baht per day by staying in cheaper hostels, using local transport, without splurging on expensive meals out or large quantities of alcohol. Street food can be a good option to keep costs down but you may need an adventurous palate.

Quieter islands like Ko Chang, national parks like Khao Yai and Khao Sok, or rural Isaan in the north of the country see far fewer tourists. Another way to beat the crowds and save money is to visit in the low season of July and August, when prices will be at their lowest.

  • In the Phuket area, the average price of a beer is about £3.21 and a glass of wine £7.37
  • For a coffee it’s £2.14, bottled water 54 pence and a carbonated drink £1.21
  • A three-course meal with wine for two costs around £68.44
