Money & costs
More and more establishments are accepting credit cards including most medium to large-sized hotels, restaurants, airline offices and shops. Surprisingly, some tour operators do not – check first.
Banks (with ATMs that accept international cards) are ubiquitous throughout the country. For exchanging cash, you’ll get a much better rate at one of the many money changers, whose bureaus are found in most town centres. All major hard currencies are exchanged and commission is not usually charged, but check this (and rates) first.
As everywhere, avoid the exchange desks at top-end hotels, which offer poor rates.
