Another question.. I am traveling to thailand from Canada ..should I wait till I get to thailand to buy some bahts..as maybe it would be cheaper..or would it be recomended to buy most of it in Canada?

I'd buy it in Thailand. I can't speak for Canada, but in the case of Australia, the rate for buying Baht is always better in Thailand -- partly because Thai banks don't have the murderous spread Australian banks have.
as a general rule you are always better off buying the local currency in the local country, particularly if you are using a major world currency. you'll get better rates and your change won't mysteriously disappear because they only have large bills available. regards.
best bet is: always buy at the airport,when arriving. you hardly get a better deal!
