British Pounds in Thailand
Anyone have experience taking / exchanging pounds to/in Thailand?
Is it widely exchanged?
I am planning on having a some dollars for Laos but probably prefer to take pounds for Thailand if possible.
Also, £50.00 notes aren't really used that much in the UK itself but it would seem these would be better for SE Asia. Any thoughts? That is one attraction of dollars - the 100 dollar bill.

Haven't we had this conversation already Christay?
There should be no problem changing English (as opposed to Scottish) pound notes.
You'll get a better rate with licensed money changers than at a bank and usually you get a better rate for 50s than 20s.

Haha you are correct I wanted to put this out there ... just in case!
Thanks for reconfirming though, I will probably head down to the bank to get some fifties.
