    money questions

    $$ is the defacto currency, U'll only use Riel for small things and get it back if ur change is less than a $1(apx 4,000 riel=$1) Bring $$ or take them from any atm ( charges $5 or so + ur bank charges, Money changers in all tourist cities will change most currencies. 95% of atm cards work.
  11. if u have ur booking ticket with you and a good reason why your leaving, you can get by with 45 days in advance..
