Siem Reap: Banks

Cambodian riel (R) is the official tender in Cambodia but the US dollar is the de facto currency. Most hotels and many restaurants and shops set their prices in US dollars. Small transactions (less than a dollar) are usually done in riel. Always carry some riel for small purchases, motodup fare, beggars, etc. Foreign currency can be exchanged at the banks or one of the many currency exchange shop. Several exchange shops, such as Dina Exchange at Phsar Kandal, are located along Sivutha Blvd.

Credit cards and travelers checks are accepted at most upscale hotels, shops and restaurants, some mid-range place and a growing number of other businesses. The most commonly accepted credit card is Visa, MasterCard and JCB. AMEX is becoming more widely accepted. Most businesses charge a 2%-4% fee to accept credit cards.

AMEX in US dollars are the most widely accepted travelers checks. ‘Instant’ cash transfers can be done through MoneyGram or Western Union.

ATMs with international access are available across Siem Reap. All ATMs dispense in US dollars. ANZ Royal Bank ATMs accept Maestro, Cirrus, Visa Plus, Visa and MasterCard. UCB Bank ATMs accept Visa Plus and Visa. SBC Bank ATMs accept Maestro, Visa and MasterCard. Canadia Bank ATMs accept Visa and MasterCard.

When accepting US dollars, inspect the bills carefully. Marred riel is acceptable tender, but the tiniest tear in a large US note renders it worthless in Cambodia.
