History of the Cambodian riel, useful information for tourists

The monetary unit of Cambodia is the Cambodian riel. Formally divided into 100 sep. The name of the currency means "royal" and comes from the name of the currency "real". The predecessor of the Cambodian riel was the Indo-Chinese piaster, which was introduced into circulation during the colonization of Cambodia by France. IN 1955 year, the National Bank of the country introduced the riel at the rate 1 to 1 to piastre. During 5 years since 1975 years on the territory of the country, the money of Vietnam and Thailand was used in circulation, and with 1980 years, the government again returned the national currency - the riel. Remarkably, that after the second return, the national currency did not become in widespread demand and did not become widespread. Cambodians willingly use US dollars in trade and monetary relations. A significant number of them settled in the country during the years of the UN peacekeeping operation.. therefore, visiting Cambodia, you can safely take cash in US currency with you and not worry about exchanging for local money. The riel is used in the country mainly as a change unit of the dollar and for small monetary transactions.. All banknotes, previously released 1995 of the year, considered canceled. Riel bills of 11 denominations are officially in circulation, wherein, banknotes 50, 100, 500 and 200 riels almost impossible to meet, as they are rarely used after inflation, Besides, there are similar coins in circulation.


Until recently, Cambodia was one of the poorest countries in the world., however, recently thanks to the development of tourism and the opening of enterprises for the production of clothing, exported to the USA, Canada and Europe, as well as the inflow of foreign investment, Cambodia's economy grows rapidly.


Iron ore deposits explored in Cambodia, gold, copper, tin, manganese, phosphorites, coal. However, the extraction of these minerals is carried out only in small volumes.. The Kingdom has large reserves of sandstone, basalt, laterita, marble, many of the quarries date back to the times of the ancient Khmers, who used them to build the temples of Angkor. There are also reserves of clay along the rivers, sand, gravel. Cambodia is also famous for its precious stones - sapphires and rubies., as well as silver jewelry from them, however, the extraction of minerals is mainly carried out in an artisanal way.

Rice is the main cultivated crop, in whose exports Cambodia competes with neighboring Thailand in world markets. The plantings of Cambodian rice are more than 85% arable land, which are harvested twice a year: one - in the rainy season (irrigation), the other in dry (dry). The yield of irrigated rice is about 30% higher, than dry rice.

Inland freshwater bodies provide 95% fish catch, most of which is mined in Tonle Sap Lake, which is the richest freshwater reservoir in the world (on 1 km2 of surface is up to 5 tons of fish during the flood period and 15 tons during the period of water decline).

Light industry in Cambodia developed with the arrival of foreign capital and the supply of equipment for the production of clothing and accessories. At the moment, up to 5% population of the country, who sew it for Western countries for little money. There is practically no heavy industry in the country, which is still being replaced by small and artisanal production, and complex products are imported.


Today the population of Cambodia is about 15 million people (95% of them are ethnic Khmer) and is dispersed throughout the country extremely unevenly due to the, that many areas are unsuitable for farming, and also because of the mines left over from the war. Average population density is 55 man on 1 km2. Urban population - about 25%

The largest ethnic group in the country - the Khmers - live in the northern, western, central and southern provinces of Cambodia. Khmer marriages are durable, divorces are rare. Khmer families, usually, have many children, parenting soft. In general, Khmers are quite friendly and sociable., are distinguished by their peacefulness and traditional hospitality.

The main occupation of the Khmers is agriculture, mainly rice growing. In their free time in the fields, they fish, and also make tools, utensils and vehicles. A typical rural Khmer settlement in Cambodia - a village - has a linear plan and is usually located near a river or pond. A traditional peasant house is built on piles with a height of 1 to 2,5 m, its facade is oriented to the east. The space under the house is usually used for household needs..

Traditional Khmer clothing - sampot (wide homespun cloth, wrapped around the hips) can be worn like men, so do women (the difference is only in color). In Khmer clothes, krama is widespread - a cotton scarf, which is tied on the head, worn around the neck or waist. Khmer food is cooked in a clay oven. The basis of the diet is boiled rice. Fish is served with him (dried, salty, smoked), vegetables, seasonings for fish and other sauces.

An important place in the economy of the mountaineers belongs to the hunting of wild animals and the gathering of edible plants. Traditional crafts of mountain peoples - metal processing, spinning, weaving, weaving bamboo utensils

A significant share in the ethnic structure of Cambodia is occupied by the Tams - the descendants of the powerful people of the Tyampa state in the past - and the Malays (together there are about 200 thousand. person). Tyams and Malays know how to fish, raise cattle for sale, and also engaged in agriculture and logging. Almost all of them are rural residents.

The Kingdom of Cambodia is also home to about 100 thousand. Vietnamese, who began to settle here back in the 17th century. In rural areas, Vietnamese are engaged in professional fishing and farming. In the cities they are artisans (portnye, shoemakers), small traders, workers of enterprises, as well as teachers, doctors, lawyers.

The Chinese community of Cambodia has about 400 thousand. person (mostly urban residents). The Chinese are at the forefront of domestic and foreign trade, have strong positions in banks, organize the transportation and marketing of rice, and also grow peppers and vegetables. Mixed marriages between Khmers and Chinese led to the creation of a rather large special group of the population - the Sino-Khmers. Cambodia also has a small number of Thais, Lao and Burmese.
