Though Cambodian riel (R) is the official currency, US dollars are used as commonly used as riel. Most tourist oriented businesses set their prices in US dollars. Though the exchange rate varies over time, it has hovered near 4000R to the dollar for several years and many small businesses treat 4000R as the de facto rate regardless of today’s exact exchange rate.

All Cambodian currency is in the form of paper notes. Currently the country does not employ coins. Notes range in denomination from 100-100,000 riel. 500, 1000, 2000, 5000 and 10,000 riel notes are the most common and useful denominations.

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


ATMs are located across town with several at banks along Sivutha Blvd and around Old Market area. All ATMs accept Visa and most also accept Cirrus, Plus, Maestro, and MasterCard. Unless you have a Cambodian bank account, all ATMs dispense in US dollars.

Credit Cards

Visa and MasterCard (MC) are the most widely accepted credit cards in Cambodia. AMEX, JCB cards, the ANZ Bluespot card and the ACLEDA Gold Dot card (GD) are accepted at many places. Some businesses charge a 2%-4% fee on credit card payment.

Travelers Checks

Travelers checks are still accepted at some banks and hotels, but there are fewer places all the time. AMEX in US dollars are the most widely accepted travelers checks.
