NEVER buy Baht in your home country , ALWAYS change in Thailand .

Siam City Bank is my preferred Bank .

Agree 100% with ChangFai -- always buy your Baht in Thailand.

I will be flying into Phom Penh and need to get to Sihnaoukville in the best possible way.

What do you recommend? Price? How do you get from the airport to the bus or train to go to Sihanoukville?

like ChangFai says, it's always best to buy your local currency IN the country you are visiting, be it thailand or mexico or indonesia or new zealand. you'll get the best rates that way for sure.

patrickx8, you might wish to start a new thread for your question, since it is a bit out of place here. cheers.
