Riel as a real currency.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I very regularly get 50,000 riel notes used in my café.
The 100,000 very rarely gets used to pay for goods, but I get offered them when banking.

They are in circulation and used widely. Just not so much in PP.

I've noticed a lot more 50k and even 100k notes being used in the provinces over the last 12-18 months.
