Was in Bangkok just a few weeks ago. I used AX and MC easily. No problem with either and ATM's are also available.

I would take a VISA (as I did for my trip) and not an American express.

I found that Visa is the most widely accepted, followed by M/C. The major hotels will take almost anything, though the smaller cities can be a problem, at times. I recommend at least two credit cards, in case you loose one, or it is not accepted (for various reasons). Bring an ATM card! I even take travelers checks to convert to ready cash at the airports. (Tips, taxi, misc items)

Jill -

Your friend should take a Visa, Am Ex, and an ATM card. Skip the TC they are mostly useless.

This is what we do for all trips and we never have problems.
