What currency to get for Laos, Cambodia & Vietnam

Posted by samadam on 3/12/2009 at 04:02

I'm travelling to SE Asia shortly for 3.5 months and am confused about what currency is the best to get in advance for travelling in Asia. We're flying into Thailand for a couple of weeks but have been before and are fine with that, but it's then onto Laos, then overland through to Cambodia and then onto Vietnam. What combination of currency & travellers cheques should I take for these countries as we've read here that ATM's in Laos are sometimes problematic and scarce?
Any advice greatly appreciated!

Hi there

I had already read the full article thanks, but it didn't quite answer my question, so I thought I'd ask the question to anyone to see what their thoughts are!
