A year’s journey

The past year has not been without many blessings. We have had other milestones that have contributed to the growth of BookMeBus.

It was in October 2015 that we first launched the BookMeBus website. After a bit of a rough start, we were able to start selling around 10 tickets per day in December 2015.

By February 2016, we finally hit the break-even point, and we did not stop there. We kept pushing, learning, and growing. As a reward for our efforts, we managed to win the first place of the MAIN Pitching event in April 2016, which was shortly followed by our victory at the Cambodia ICT Award in June 2016.

In July 2016, we were blessed further when we received support from Angel investments. Which fueled the rise to earning more transactions by August 2016. We were very surprised in September 2016, when BookMeBus was mentioned by the Australian Prime Minister. A recognition to which we are truly honored and grateful for.

Our recent victory at the Rice Bowl Awards simply capped off our year, and what an amazing year we had so far!

Cambodia Money Fast Facts

Many travelers often worry about Cambodia money. Questions often arise as to what currency is accepted? What is the exchange rate? Where can I have money exchanged? Will ATMs accept international cards?

Here are some Cambodia money fast facts that might help travelers. It is extremely helpful especially during the preparation phase.

Cambodia Money: Basics

  • Cambodian currency is called Riel
  • US Dollars are accepted throughout Cambodia
  • Rough conversion is $1 = 4,000 Riels (20,000 Dong)
  • At the Thai or Vietnamese border, some restaurants accept Riels, Dong, or US Dollars
  • When paying in Dollars, the change will be in Riels if it is less than $1

Cambodian Money Fast Facts

Where can I exchange money?

  • Cambodian banks in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville have banks that are able to exchange currencies.
  • Local shops offer money exchange. These are easy to spot as there is often a booth in front displaying various types of currencies.

Can I use ATMs or credit cards?

  • There are ATMs available in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, and Siem Reap. However, these can be sparse in the more rural areas.
  • Most of the ATMs are ANZ, ABA, and Canadia Banks. Although recently more banks have set up their own ATMs.
  • Whenever using an ATM, it will cost around $5 for every withdrawal.
  • Credit cards are helpful and accepted at restaurants, major hotels, and several establishments.
  • ATMs are available 24 hours.
  • Cambodian banks generally open at 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

There is much debate about how much amount to take. It is best to carry smaller cash denominations so that it is easier to pay. When booking with BookMeBus, however, we accept all kinds of payments: Credit cards, debit cards, Wing, SmartLuy, among others.
