The exchange rate changes all the time, so pretty hard to say.

Banks are usually open at 9am l think?

All of the ATM's give out US dollars. I think they charge about $5 Australian to do so and the maximum you can withdraw is usually about $500.

And the exchange rate has been going down since the start of the year so I would expect 1AUD will buy somewhere between .90 - .93 US cents.

Would recommend getting some US dollars before you leave AUS also so that you have some when you land.

Found it best to order it through the bank as exchange rates at the airport (in AUS) are terrible.

you need $20 USD for your visa .. we usually take enough USD for our visas, angkor passes and a day or two's meals & transport and then use the ATMs.

make sure you notify your bank so they bon't block your card for 'suspicious' activity

Banks generally open at 8.30 and close at 4pm and quite a few are open Saturday mornings.

I normally change money on St 217 and the rate seems to be within one cent of the rate on xe.com (generally).

There are money changers everywhere on the street, The banks give a low exchange rate, I take Aus dollars and look at the rate signs put up every day by the money changers and take the highest. As said before dont change at the airport rates are terrible.
