Pounds are fine - at banks.

About USD$20-30 is handy for getting from an airport to downtown until you get the local currency.

Travellers cheques can be a hassle to cash what with I.D. and security checks.

ATMs all over in VN and quite a few in Cambo.

Dollars are better. In Cambodia you can use dollars for virtually everything. Even if you buy a cigarette, they take dollars and give you change in their currency.
