Currency / Banks / Credit Cards

The official currency in Cambodia is Riel. However, US Dollars are widely accepted. In fact, many businesses set their prices in US Dollars. Nevertheless, it is wise to carry some Riel with you for smaller purchases. The current exchange rate for Riel to US Dollar is around 4000 riel = US$1.

Use and acceptance of credit cards is increasing in Cambodia and you can get cash advances against your credit card at some major commercial banks. ATMs do not provide access to foreign bank accounts.
