Getting Bhat/Khat and a taxi very early on a Sunday...

Jump to last reply

Hello, we will arrive in Bangkok at the airport at 6am on Sunday a couple weeks from now. We spend three days there before going on to Burma.

We already have a stack of brand new US $100 and $50 bills, in anticipation of Burma, but we have no Thai bhat or Myanmar khat, so my questions are, for us being at the BKK airport early on a Sunday morning:

1) Shall we get Thai bhat from an ATM? I assume our ATM card will work there, or do we need to go to a currency exchange and would they be open? Any need to get some bhat in the US before we go?

2) Is it true that taking a cab that time of day will not get us snarled in the BKK traffic I keep hearing about? That it would cost only $10 from the airport to downtown BKK?

3) In Burma, what is the best currency to have to buy meals and souvenirs. I don't know if I can find brand new $5 and $10 bills, and don't know if we should get some Khat when we arrive at the Yangon airport.

Thanks so much!

Chris
