LifestyleThe Thai Currency

August 24, 2019admin0

Living in a foreign country, it is extremely important to know the currency and its names in the native language. You may not be able to learn the Thai language properly, but knowing what the different coins and notes are called is always beneficial as you need them everywhere.

The Thai currency is Baht (฿) and 100 satang make 1 baht, hence in terms of meaning, a satang would be equivalent to a penny.

Starting with coins, there are a total of three different satang coins and four different baht coins.

There are transactions that could be more than 1,000 baht as well, so it is important to know the names of values above that.

  • 10,000 baht – nueng muen o,ooo
  • 100,000 baht – nueng saen oo,ooo
  • 1,000,000 baht (million) – nueng laan ,ooo,ooo

This information could help you a lot, especially in daily life and if you are a new expat to Thailand. So whether it is simply buying groceries, or shopping for new clothes, or talking to customers and making deals, Thai people always love it when a fellow expat learns about the local culture and language, and it would make your work easier too!
