Currency to bring

Hi All

I read a few posts saying that the currency I should bring to Cambodia is USD. Is this still valid as I only came across posts that were posted in 2009 - 2011. Just checking if anything has changed?

Appreciate if you can give any recent cost estimate for regular expenses in Cambodia + any other tip for a first time traveller will be highly appreciated. Thank you!

yes bring USD or use the ATM's

just for future reference - if you do a forum search and it appears the posts coming up are a bit old you can filter for date using the little drop down thingy at the right of the search bar.

someone posted a few days ago asking for cost info - perhaps you could scroll through the first couple of pages or do another search

using the search box for 'first time traveller' will also get you plenty of info but the best advice I can give is to enjoy your trip, smile, drink lots of water and apply your sunscreen & insect spray regularly

Still the same, although you can change any mayor currency without problems at the money exchangers that are always found in the vicinity of markets. No fees, excellent rates! Always change there, never at banks! Coins are not used in Cambodia. For small change the Riel (KHR) is used. Exchange rate has been stable very close to 4000 Riel for 1 USD for the last years.

This question is posted nearly every week, I'm surprised you couldn't find anything more recent than 2011 when you searched the forum
