Not 100% sure but I think you can go into a bank and they will accept the old bill minus a small fee..

I don't know if you will have problems changing them here, but I believe that in the US any bank or shop will take them without question. You just need to find someone going to the US soon that will buy them off you.

Aye, there’s the rub. KOW is pretty good at rejecting bills. 100s, 20s, 10s, 5s, even a few 1s, because of all sorts of reasons. Anything less then pristine is always a possible refused bill.

KOW = Kingdom or Wonder = Cambodia

Best bet would be to try to the money exchange people near Central Market. They have highest chance of accepting that money - and exchanging it for smaller bills.

I would also bring 20 dollar bills and lower denominations just in case.

Good luck
