For the most part, Phnom Penh is an inexpensive place to visit. Budgeters can probably get by in Phnom Penh on US $10.00 a day and accommodations can be as cheap as US$2.00, and you can feed yourself for about US $2-3. If you want to travel out of the capital you'll need to spend more, transport can be a major expense. The entrance fee at Angkor Wat is approximately US $20.00 Mid-range travel is very reasonable, with good accommodations from US$15-25 can be found. Decent meals will set you back US $5.

The US dollar can be used everywhere. The Thai Baht are also widely accepted. Cash advances on credit cards is possible but be advised that changing travellers cheques outside Phnom Penh can be difficult. As of this writing, there are no ATMs and credit cards other than at major hotels are rarely accepted.

Tipping and gratuities for good service will be gratefully accepted but is generally not expected in Phnom Penh. Bargaining is a must in markets, when hiring vehicles and sometimes even when booking a room.

High-end accomodation is available in Phnom Penh.
