In the back end of November 2007 £1 = 71 bht

I look today (04 Jan 08) £1=65 bht

Is this normal for Bht to fluctuate at this time of year? as it did same last year;

Or is it a bad sign of which way it is going?

What do you guys think?

The reduction in UK interest rates would have made a bit of a difference but yes a 10% swing in the wrong direction for us Brits certainly is a bit of a downer but no big deal, especially when us veterans can remember 38 Baht to the pound.

Do you think it will go back up?

We are expecting another two lots of intrest reductions to come:

The Thai Baht seems to be doing fine..The weak U.S. Dollar which our politicians keep borrowing more and more Money to finance unpopular wars causes Europes money to move..Americans has no means to pay back the Trillions of borrowed money they keep spending..Even Canadas dollar is stronger and soon the Mexican peso will outclass the once mighty dollar..Im afraid Its only going to get worse...

No place on the Planet like Pattaya..Don't let your meat loaf

If I was certain about the answer to that question Paul, I'd be playing the exchange markets :Chokdee3:

These days I regard 65.00 as (in golfing terms) the par rate and anything over that is a bonus.

 

I don't wanna sound smug here but a few weeks ago when the rate hit 70.00, I sent a chunk of money to my Bangkok Bank account. Nice to get it right once in a while :P

Be glad you have pounds. You could be wiping your ass with dollars.

 

Sucks. The world economy is starting to head in a real shitty direction now, I'm afraid.

  • 2 weeks later...

paulwillia, I suspect you may have a misunderstanding of what is actually happening with the Thai currency vs the British pound. Actually the pound is falling in value therefore your pound gets you less baht. At the same time the thai baht has been strong, which further decreases the amount of baht you can buy per pound. So the baht is not dropping as you state rather it is strengthening (becoming more valuable) against the british pound. What is at fault is the link between the pound and the US dollar. The US dollar is plummeting, the British pound then also is losing it value, meanwhile the Thailand economy remains "relatively" healthy. As in Pattaya choose your bed partners carefully.

So what is the current Pound- Baht exchange rate in Thailand? I am going in a weeks time :Laugh1:

 

With stock markets bouncing around, banks playing with intrest rates;

its not possible to give you rates for weeks time;

But, I find taking travellers cheques in pound sterlin best and change them when you are in Pattaya;

The rate being quoted for 21 Jan: 64.02Bht to the pound;

Carring travellers cheques is also less bulky than money and safer;(If stolen you hopfully will get your money back)

Using ATM can be ok but big charges;

Hope you find this usful;

I have said this before but i will keep saying for the benefit of people in the UK that are not aware ,whilst traveler cheques have a good rate you do mostly pay for having them ,but with a nationwide ATM card you get top rates and no fees what so ever .To me I do not know how i ever manged before using Barclay's or any other UK ATM card with all the charges i use to have to pay .I highly recommend the nationwide card for those that do not know about it already.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
