Thai Currency and Cost of Living

The Baht (บาท) is the currency of Thailand. It is subdivided into 100 Satang. (สตางค์) Right now the exchange rate is about 32 to 1.

A great dinner for two people in Bangkok will cost you about $10-$15 US. The same great meal for two in the countryside might cost as little as $5-$10 US.

A good homestay (a room in someone's home) outside of Bangkok costs around $16 US per person without meals and as much as $78 US per person for a room, meals, some transportation and a village guide. (The guide may only speak Thai though.)
