Sihanoukville: Money & Banks

Though Cambodian riel (R) is the official currency, US dollars are currently the de facto tender in Cambodia. 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. Always carry some small riel for minor purchases. 500 and 1000 riel notes are the most common and useful denominations. Money changers tend to give a slightly better exchange rate than the banks. 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..

ATMs Sihanoukville has several ATMs with international access including: downtown  at ANZ Royal Bank; a couple near the Golden Lions; at the Golden Sand Hotel on Ochheuteal Beach; at the Holiday Palace Hotel on Victory Beach; at the Total Station downtown and at the convenience store opposite Mealy Chenda Guesthouse on Victory Hill

Travelers Checks Travelers checks are accepted at most banks, many hotels and some restaurants. AMEX in US dollars are the most widely accepted travelers checks. Ana Internet offers currency/travelers cheque exchange and Visa and MasterCard advances.
