The unit of currency in Thailand is the baht, and is indicated by the symbol B. There are 100 satang to one baht, and although tiny gold 25 and 50 satang coins are available, their value is so low that they are rarely used.
Coins are also available in denominations of 1 baht, 2 baht, 5 baht and 10 baht.
Currency notes are in 20 baht, 50 baht, 100 baht, 500 baht and 1,000 baht.
Banks and authorized moneychangers on Samui are able to convert travelers checks and foreign currency into baht, while ATMs distribute cash in baht and charge a fee of around 150 baht for using a foreign bank card.
