"Plastic money" Money - Currency Tip by iclee

Money - Currency, Bangkok: 11 reviews and 19 photos


Favorite thing: Major credit cards (CC) are accepted in the major cities like Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, etc. Some companies levy an additional surcharge when purchasing sale items. Amexco, Visa, Mastercard, JCB are all accepted.

Notes are always accepted by currency exchange kiosks while Traveler's Cheques have a lower rate than notes.

Some rural places do not accept CCs.

Fondest memory: Most people smiled and accommodated our requests.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
