Cambodian riel (R) is the official tender in Cambodia but the US dollar is the de-facto currency and the most useful for the average visitor to Cambodia. Most hotels and restaurants, shops, taxis, buses and airlines set their prices in US dollars. Even the visa prices and departure taxes are set in US dollars. To give an idea of the purchasing power of Cambodian Riel, below are examples of cost of items, in Riel, in Cambodia:
The smallest can (330ml) of Coca-Cola in Cambodia can be bought for 1,800 Riel (about US$0.45).
A loaf of plain ordinary bread is 4,800 Riel (US$1.20).
A plate of fried rice mixed with meat and herbs is at least 8,000 Riel (US$2.00) up to 12,800 Riel (US$3.20).
Please note that ripped, torn, or old bills will not be accepted. ATM machines, which distribute US dollars, are found throughout Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 15:00 and Saturday morning until 12:00. In the major cities there are exchange bureaus and most hotels will change US dollars although for other currencies it is usually necessary to visit a bank. Traveler’s checks can be exchanged at banks and some hotels but can be difficult to change outside of the major cities. Visa Card and MasterCard are now accepted in many hotels, restaurants and shops in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
