When you are overseas, you can go to any ATM there with CIRRUS and MAESTRO sticker pasted on it, to withdraw local currency. There will be a S$5 service charge, and whatever amount you withdrawn will be converted to S$. Unless you are going no-so-common places like Sweden, the currency exchange from bank can never match what you can have if you change from money exchanger. So, unless necessary then you withdraw cash using your ATM card there. Else, you will loss quite abit on exchange rate from bank.
It depends on yourself whether you want to change whatever you need in Singapore then bring a lump sum there, or carry sufficient cash for cab fares etc then withdraw from local ATM (but if i'm not wrong, ATM in bangkok not easy to find hor). Bangkok is generally still quite a safe country. If you worry that much about safety, why are you going there in the first place?! I mean, i know you want to go bangkok for your nosejob, but if you worry that much about safety, it really makes no sense to go that country. Like if now you want to go china for tour but yet worry about bird flu, then why plan to go in there?
