  1. those 2 most upper foto's with the rectangular are what one calls Burmese style
    Banknotes with holes or ripped etc can-just like in Europe, be exchanged (sometimes with small discount for missing area) at the national bank. In TH take extra care not to punch the picture of whom is on all of them.
