Chip And Pin Debit Cards

Recommended Posts

Hi I haven't been to Thailand in 5 years and I will be back in November. Question I have is doAmerican atm cards still work on Thai bank ATM's ? The reason I ask that is that the world has moved on to chip and pin cards while america is the only country that still uses the magnetic strip cards. Should I get something like the Travelex cash card that has pin and chip ?
