The currency of Cambodia

Good question! The national currency here is the Riel (1 US Dollar = app. 4000 - 4200 Riels), but everybody uses US dollars in Siem Reap. Make sure you always have small change for small shops as they probably won't accept a 50 dollar bill! Beware that worn dollar bills, or even presenting a small tear, will not be accepted in Cambodia.

Important: do not make any change at the airport as the rate is not good at all.

Health Insurance

Do not visit Cambodia without medical insurance. Hospitals are extremely basic in the provinces and even in Phnom Penh the facilities are not necessarily what you may be used to at home. Anyone who has a serious injury or illness while in Cambodia may require emergency evacuation to Bangkok. With an insurance policy costing no more than the equivalent of a bottle of beer a day, this evacuation is free. Without an insurance policy, it will cost between US$10,000 and US$20,000. Don’t gamble with your health in Cambodia or you may end up another statistic.

Vaccinations

We recommended your discuss required vaccinations with your local health care provider prior to travel.
