    Camdodian Riel

    by machomikemd Written Jun 19, 2012

    Favorite thing: you don't need to change your US Dollars into Cambodian Riel since the US Dollar is the second main currency of Siem Reap and all establishments and even tuktuk drivers accept them and give you change in US Dollars (only the smaller $ 1, 5 and 10 bills ok. and no COINS!). some unscrupulous ones give you the Cambodian Riel as change.

    you can change 1 US dollar into cambodian riel in several denominations as a souvenir like what I did hehehe.

    Fondest memory: at present, 1 US Dollar is about 4,107 cambodian riel as of may 2012 exchange rates.

    the riel bank notes available at present are: - 50 Riel, 100 Riel, 500 Riel, 1000 Riel, 2000 Riel, 5000 Riel, 10,000 Riel, 20,000 Riel, 50,000 Riel

    there are no coins of riel denominations at present.

    the riel more riel 1000 riel more assorted riel

    Fondest memory: Crazy shabby cars. Look at the photo, a truck cabriolet without exhaust box. Notice the driver with a motorcycle helmet.
