Thailand - The value of the money.
What can you get for your money in thailand?
What gives you some idea of the value of the money in Thailand? Well 1 baht is equal to about 1.3 pence sterling and the baht is divided into 100 satang - admittedly you wont find anything on sale for 1 satang but you will see the 25 satang used in change on many items. So by our reckoning 0.32 pence sterling is the lowest common denominator.
10 - 20 or 30 baht is a very common price for street food items:
You can buy a 'roti' or 'rotee' - a kind of pancake with one of many fillings for between 10 and 30 baht
That is roughly 13p to 39p for quite a tasty pudding -
The 'sweet' roti has sugar and condensed milk on it - very yummy! And the banana roti, well you can't eat many of those real value at about 33 pence!
