im sure u can buy proper pocket converters but i would suggest -

a) buy your children a cheap pocket calculator and teach them the rule of dividing the thai price by 27 (or what ever the conversion is at the time) to get the australian price.

e.g. 400 (baht) / 27 = just under $15AU

b) do what you have done in the past (and so have i with the euro) and write out the most common thai denominations and their australian value.

Hi Cathy4564

I used this one here. I found it very helpfull. You can print out both ways, i.e Baht to Thai and Thai to Baht. I have used this before and it was so helpful, very handy for the kids also.

Hope you find useful

We used the same one as Kaney, print a new one just before you go. Our rate in April was 1000b/$38.00, so we just rounded it off to $40.00 to do quick exchange calculation when we were out shopping or eating.

I know it is a great little convertor isn't it. So much easier than doing your own and you can do it just before you leave to go. I have made so many for friends going to Phuket.
