from what I can see currently over 32! Wish I was buying now! We go in less than 6 weeks but already have enough on us for this trip, pity. If it is still near that I will buy some though as we are usually go a couple of times a year. That is a great rate!

I agree!

When we were there in 07 we were getting about 30 in our hand over there, 2011 about 28/9 in our hand.

This is what I meant, what are we getting IN OUR HAND over in Phuket, not here via the rip off banks! lol

Lets hope it stays high til we get there in July! :-)

We were exchanging Australian dollars in June 2011 and getting 32 regularly. We never got below 30.

I remember getting 18THB to the AU$ but that's another story.

If it didn't register the FAQ you've been referred to above and in the past, has on it a great link, this one;

…daytodaydata.net/default.aspx

It will give you the rates for IN THE HAND in LIVE time.

Checking it right at THIS moment in time it shows that 33THB/1AUD is achievable (within Thailand), with the lowest rate (Thai Military Bank) offering a paltry 31.67

The majority of cash exchange places you will use in Phuket are a whisker either side of 32.5

Use the website, and keep an eye on the rate movements for yourself.

Hahahaha 4b,

Eza the LIVE rates are on the link that Fourb2 has left, check the link, it tells you what each and every bank in Thailand will give you for cash, travellers cheques and also the rate for the atms!!! The rate right at this moment is well over 32 for most banks.

I returned yesterday :( Rate changs daily, so of course no way of knowing what the rate will be when you get there.

But in the week just past, I got from 32.5 -32.75 (the Aus $ went up on Monday)

Hope this helps

The Aussie has strengthened since the Reserve Bank decided to leave Interest Rates unchanged and commodity prices have been steadily rising which is the biggest influence on our currency as China buys everything we mine.
