ATM,s, Cash, Travellers Cheques, Visa Cards etc
Favorite thing: There are ATMs in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, we used them a lot, if your card has Cirrus or Maestro on the back you will be ok.
Cash of course is also great, we took a mixture of everything, US dollars, atm cards and travellers cheques).
US dollars are accepted everywhere in Cambodia. Make sure you have lots of small denominations, eg mainly ones and fives.
Sometimes you will get some riel as change when you spend dollars, get rid of them before you leave as they will be worth nothing to you, use for small items like bottles of water, tips etc.
There are lots of places that you can change travellers cheques and you can get a cash advance from Visa cards at the Cambodian Commercial Bank and Anz Royal Bank in Phnom Penh and a few banks in other main towns.
