    LOCAL CURRENCY

    by Nina-Maarit Updated Feb 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Picture from www.amazing-thailand.com

    The local currency is baht (1 THB = ca. 0.02 EUR/USD). There is a couple of banks and an ATM in the village.

    Note: Do not handle the local currency disrespectfully (e.g. do not step on it), since it has the image of the King’s head on it, and the Thais are very sensitive to any disrespect towards their monarchy.

    DRESS DECENTLY IN THE VILLAGE

    by Nina-Maarit Written Dec 31, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The local people living in the Tonsai Village are muslims, so please do not go to the village wearing just bikini - they find it offensive. If you come straight from the beach, you can cover your bikini e.g. with a large scarf.
