Cha-Am: additional information for tourists
Money, Banks and Post office
Most of the banks in Cha-am are located around the main junction, but the Siam Commercial Bank is conveniently located on the beachfront. ATM are all over the place, just like anywhere else in Thailand. You can pay by credit card in major hotels and upscale restaurants, but paying by cash is more convenient (and safer) in most of the places.
Banknotes and coins
The currency of Thailand is the baht. It is subdivided into 100 satang. There are 1000, 500, 100, 50 and 20 banknotes. Silver coins are 10, 5, 2 and 1 baht, and copper coins are 50 and 25 satang.
