Suvarnabhumi Airport Overnight

Posted by Yun on 22/10/2007 at 16:06

During my trip in December/January, I unfortunately have two times where I will arrive in BKK around 2300, and have a flight out (one to PP, one to Koh Samui) around 700 the next morning. I know the airport has day-rooms for hire, but these appear to be approx. USD50-100 for a few hours use (which is honestly quite ridiculous). Does anyone have any suggestions? Are food outlets/shops etc open overnight? Thanks ...

USD/THB & Currency

Posted by Yun on 2/10/2007 at 09:20

I was wondering how widely accepted USD is in Thailand - is it possible to get around BKK/KPN/Koh Tao withOUT any THB? I assume THB is advantageous and expected especially in markets and stalls. In this case, I'm coming from Australia. Today the Exchange rates online are: - AUD1:28.37THB or USD1:31.84. Would I be best doing: 1) In BKK, changing AUD to THB? 2) In Australia, changing AUD to USD, then in BKK changing USD to THB? 3) Just carrying USD and getting THB in change off the s ...
