    I plan on taking a Visa card with me. My travel agent said Aussie dollars cash is fine, but I was wondering if AU or US dollars would be better?

    In Thailand Australian cash is fine.

    Don't buy Baht in OZ!!!!!

    Change your Aussie dollars to Baht when you get here. You'll get a much better rate than at home.

    Don't bother changing Au$ to US$ to THB as you'll loose on charges every time.

    If you are thinkning of using the AU$ in Thailand as currency, forget it...you'll get ripped for sure.

    PS - Small dollar bills (US $ 1) are useful in Cambodia and hard to get in Thailand.
