ATM Availability in Bangkok & Chiang Mai ??

We are off to Bangkok and Chiang Mai for 10 days next month. My first time to this area.

Looking for guidance in regards to currency/ATM availability. Should I exchange US dollars into Baht before I leave or wait until I get to the airport in Bangkok? Want to optomize good exchange rates and low fees/commissions. My ATM has a Cirrus and Star connectability.

Thanks in advance.

I have been to both places. Wait until you get to the airport in Bangkok to use the ATM. There are also ATM's all over the city. You will get the best rates at ATMs as long as your bank does not charge you.

Also, I forgot to mention, check out my website about my trip to Bangkok in 2000. From there, if you look at my RTW trip, you'll see my trip to Chiang Mai as well (from 1998).

Yes, that's my experience, too. There is an ATM in the Bangkok airport, after you pass through customs, that takes cirrus ATM cards.

Enjoy Thailand!
