    Travellers cheques- can you get US dollars in cash as well as kip in LP?

    I know the latest travelfish guide says you can and its the most up to date but other sources say only kip will be cashed.
    We are taking majority of cash in US$ but wanted back up - but would like to know asap as we organise our funds in the next few days.

    Are safety boxes in guest houses reliable?

    Also what does everyone do when they go to herbal sauna or waterfalls for a dip?
    Is it simply get a decent waterproof pack for stash?
