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.
