    At one time the $AU was over the US dollar so I would think it would have been strong against THB

    I remember Chob was looking at transferring a reasonable amount at the time so he may remember what the rate was then.

    I loved my trip to Thailand last November to Ao Nang (Krabi) at the time i was getting 23 baht to 1 AUD I thought prices were ok still, beer 100 baht for a large Chang at some bars, you can eat some amazing food for a few dollars still. At the moment I only go on holidays so not a big deal compared to living there I suppose. Its always a bonus though when things are cheaper than you expect such as beer prices in Vietnam where you can get sloshed for $10.

    I couldn't get enough baht @ high 32s to the AUD.
    I was changing 10k at a time then.
    Lasted me right up to when I came back home and the rate had dropped a lot.
    Certainly makes the place a whole lot cheaper at those numbers.

    I never think in terms of Australian dollars. For a good number of years the Canadian dollar was higher than the Aussie dollar, but now they are pretty much at a par. I don't keep records, but I could probably go back through my old Thai bank books and check. I do know that around 1998 I got close to 40 baht to the Canadian dollar, and about 6 or 7 years ago I got almost 32 baht to the dollar. For a while the Canadian dollar was higher than the US dollar, but now the Canadian dollar is in free fall and showing no signs of stopping. It doesn't help having a selfie taking idiot as a Prime Minister.

    And yet it's remained pretty stable against the pound for the last 5 years...

    Ok I'll stand corrected....maybe it was 30.5???

    Last night I went back to my 1st TR, what I had left from PI and although there wasn't a mention of a rate I did the conversion on my dentistry costs and what I had equated it to back home and it came in at 30.5.

    I just exchanged $300 Canadian dollars and got a 22.87 exchange rate. I hope the almost 6900 baht lasts for another 10 days.

    Where are you exchanging money because that is a pretty bad rate although for 300cad it really doesn't make much of a difference

    But you should be getting around 23.50

    But again, for 300cad it makes really no difference

    At a SCB bank where I have had my Thai account for the past 20 years. I'm not going to quibble over a few dollars. I'm only here for another week and I have to ride up to the border tomorrow to do my final visa run. Too bad that the Thai government doesn't make it easier for long term tourists who leave a LOT of money in the country, but that is just the way it is.

    It literally is only less than 200baht, so no biggie

    But if you are moving decent money it adds up

    I just wired 10k cad(Nut's tuition) and that is 8500baht difference

    The government says you can go to the border once for a 6 month stay on TV's but you choose to do it twice. Totally your call.

    Not to be rude but the money you spend in Thailand barely does anything for Thailand's economy

    You aren't exactly a sought after expat who is paying taxes, employing people or even just spending decent money

    Any single person is irrelevant but the tourist industry is work 70 billion dollars annually to Thailand. That is a huge part of the Thai economy.

    Yeah Thailand would be more on par with Vietnam without tourism.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
