Currency Information

The official currency is the Thai Baht (THB).
Coins: 1 THB, 2 THB, 5 THB, 10 THB Notes: 20 THB, 50 THB, 100 THB, 500 THB, 1,000 THB

Exchange and Banking

Although travelers cheques are accepted in major cities, Phuket is a more rural area and so we suggest visiting a bank to exchange these for Thai Baht. Major credit cards are accepted here in large outlets, selected restaurants and some tour companies. It is suggested that cash is used for everyday purchases. ATM access is widespread so making cash withdrawals from your home bank account is convenient. If you wish to exchange notes, do so only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend. Please note that coins cannot be reconverted on departure. It is also recommended that you save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction as they may be required if you intend to reconvert Thai Baht.

As most villas are all privately owned homes, we do not have the facilities to accept credit cards.

Tipping advice

Tips in high-end restaurants and hotels are usually added on at 10% – 15% of the bill. However, it is often a subject of controversy whether this amount actually goes to the waiter or not, therefore it is your choice whether to leave an additional tip. Tips in more local restaurants are usually not included on the bill, so it is recommended that a 10% tip is left if you are happy with the service you received.

It is customary to tip the housekeeper, cook and driver on departure, this is greatly appreciated, but completely at your discretion. If you wish to leave a tip please do so directly to the member of staff.

Arrival and Departure formalities

Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have a both a signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration and a visa. Visas are issued on arrival for tourists, from most countries, wishing to stay in Phuket for a maximum of 30 days. However, if you wish to stay for longer than this please contact the immigration office in Phuket Town for an extension. It is advised that you check the specific visa requirements pertinent to your own country of residence prior to travelling, as some countries differ from this rule.

On arrival in Phuket if the accommodation you have chosen includes airport transfers, you will be met by one of our drivers displaying a CyanSiam sign unless we advise you otherwise.


Domestic power in Thailand is 220 volts AC at 50 hertz (220V/50Hz).
