    Both dollars and Euros are easy to change...take whatever currency you use back home to avoid unnecessary exchange losses. Currencies like Dong, Kip, Kyats and Scottish pound notes aren't accepted in banks in Thailand but all major currencies can be easily exchanged.

    Don't change money till you get to Thailand ...you can change money at better rates at the airport than you'll get back home. Lots of ATMs practically everywhere so you don't need to take wads of cash with you.

    For Australian travellers, I have checked with the banks and found that the National Australia Bank Gold card charges no transaction or foreign exchange fees. Instead it charges a flat $12pm which is waived if a deposit of $5000pm is made. So you could deposit $5000, go overseas and you would only have $12 charges if you stayed more than a month. And this would allow you to not have to change money until you are overseas, as recommended by SBE in the above post.
