Phnom Penh: Banks


Money  (Click here for more on money, credit cards, ATMs.)

Though Cambodian riel (KHR) is the official currency, US dollars are in common use. Most businesses, especially hotels, restaurants, airlines, markets and souvenir shops set their prices in US dollars. Change of less than one dollar is given in riel. Money changers cluster around the markets and tend to give a slightly better exchange rate than the banks. When accepting money, inspect the bills. Marred riel is acceptable tender, but the tiniest tear in a large US note renders it unusable in Cambodia.

ATMs ATMs are located all across town. All ATMs accept Visa and MasterCard. Many also accept Cirrus, Plus and Maestro. All ATMs dispenses US dollars. For locations see the ATM icon on the city maps.

Credit Cards Visa, MasterCard (MC) and ANZ cards are the most widely accepted credit cards in Cambodia. AMEX is accepted at a few places, Diners Club (DC) at fewer places. Many businesses charge commission on credit card payment.
