When you are traveling in Thailand, it is necessary to exchange money to local currency (Thai baht - THB) as other currencies are not accepted in the country. You can exhange your currency at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Once you arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport and you need an amount of THB for paying your Visa on Arrival fee (it can be paid in cash only), your only option is to change money at the exchange booths of the banks that are right in the Customs Hall. It’s not a good idea to change all your cash here because the rates are much worse than in other places.
However, Suvarnabhumi Airport conveniently has many currency exchange booths where you can convert cash and get fair rates. You should go down to the underground floor (B Floor) next to the Airport Rail Link Suvarnabhumi Station and change your money there.
There is a number currency exchange booths here and you will get really fair rates that will be much better than these at the bank. The exchange rates might vary a bit between the booths so shop around. All the booths don’t charge any commissions or fees. Keep in mind that you get better rates for larger notes in Thailand.

In our experience, Super Rich booths (both green and orange) at Suvarnabhumi Airport usually offer best rates in Thailand. There are also Superrich exchange booths in the downtown and the rates they offer are close to or identical to the ones at the airport. However, you should always check their website first to know if you are getting a good rate or not and remember the rates are dynamic and can change at any minute.
