Money and Tipping

Though Cambodia has it's own currency, the Riel (KHR), US dollars are the primary currency. Riels are only used for transactions less than $1. Exchange rate is 4,000 KHR = 1 USD (May 2013). ATM's dispense US currency. Try to find Canadia Bank ATM's since they do not charge an additional fee for foreign cards. Tipping is not common in Asia.

Going to Siem Reap

Siem Reap is over 300 miles away by road but Sihanoukville has a small airport with limited flights to Siem Reap. More frequent flights are available from Phnom Penh.

Local Transportation

Tuk-tuk and taxi drivers will wait by the pier. You will need to bargain for the fare to your destination.
