The Money Trail – Cambodia

The official currency of Cambodia is the riel.  However, it might as well be the US dollar.  Every ATM that we used in Cambodia dispensed US dollars and everyone seemed to prefer transacting in US currency.  The only time we used riel was when we were owed change after a transaction.  We’d receive bills of riel instead of American coins.

1 US dollar ~= 4000 Cambodian riel
