What is the currency used in Thailand?
Thai Coin

The abbreviation for the Thai baht, which is the country's official currency, is "THB". One baht in Thailand is equal to one hundred satang. The baht is the official currency of Thailand and is used in all monetary transactions. This includes making reservations at hotels, purchasing public transportation tickets, and making purchases at retail stores.

Coins and Banknotes

Both coins and banknotes can be used to purchase items denominated in baht in Thailand. As coin denominations, you can choose between one baht, two baht, five baht, ten baht, twenty five and fifty satang.  It is possible to get banknotes in the following denominations: 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1,000 baht. On one side of the banknotes is a picture of King Rama IX or X of Thailand, and on the other side are illustrations of other famous landmarks and locations in Thailand.

It is possible to obtain the value of one baht in another currency by exchanging a number of various sums of baht for that other currency. In addition to the yen, the dollar from the United States, the euro, the British pound, and the Japanese yen are all currencies that are often used in Thailand. You are able to trade any of these other currencies for Thai baht at any of the hotels, currency exchange booths, or banks in Thailand. Alternately, transferring currency inside of a financial institution is often seen as the method that is the most reliable and secure of the available options.

Recommendation for travelers

When traveling to Thailand, vacationers are strongly advised to bring a combination of cash and credit cards with them for payment options. There is a widespread acceptance of credit cards at hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls; however, the only form of payment that is accepted by many smaller businesses and local markets is cash. Although credit cards are widely accepted, cash is still the most common form of payment. 

It is also very important to keep in mind that some credit cards may levy additional fees on transactions that are carried out in different countries.

To provide a brief overview, the Thai baht is a dependable currency that is widely used and accepted throughout the nation of Thailand. When traveling to a foreign country, vacationers shouldn't leave home without a combination of cash and credit cards in their possession, and they should only convert currency at reputable businesses.
