Hi All

I'll be flying to Siam Reap on this Friday. Is there ATM machine for me to withdraw cash with my credit card after i touched down? Do you know if the machine will dispense usd or riel? Thanks for your help in advance.

Cheers!

If working and if compatible with your credit card network and your credit card permissions it will dispense $US

There are ATMs at the airport but you can't always guarantee they will be working. They dispense US$.

Always advisable to bring some dollars with you to pay for your visa (if applicable) and your transport into town. Once you get to town there are dozens of ATMs so you will always find one that works.

Hello chriskoh7770

Yes, there are three (3) ATMs inside the Siem Reap airport building in the arrivals hall. BUT you have to trust/risk, that they have not been cashed out by previously arriving flight passengers.

Arriving passengers must never depend upon ATMs within the airport terminal building for their USD currency with which to pay their KH Visa on Arrival fee of US$30 but should always come prepared with this.

On exiting the airport building there is a further row of six (6) ATMs available for your use if required.

Also at Siem Reap airport, but after immigration control and in the bag collection hall, is a currency exchange counter.

I've seen passengers use their Debit/credit card at the money exchange booth.

you sign a paper to give them permission to charge your card in whatever currency it is and they give you change in USD or Riel.

In case ATMs are not working

Hello Gio F

But why would passengers do that knowing/given that there are six (6) more ATMs immediately outside of the baggage hall at Siem Reap airport? Using a credit card to get cash is a very expensive way indeed to do so.
