If you mean will people accept US$ in shops and restaurants etc. then no.You can obviously change dollars at the bank or exchange kiosks.

Also bear in mind that the dollar is not that welcome at the moment due to poor exchange rates.

yes susquosh i appreciate that but as only going for a few days in HK and S/PORE just trying to work out best way to have least of each currency left on departure ATM machines may be best bet if available.

Would think if you had to much money left over from Singapore and Hong Kong you could exchange that in Koh Samui.

Personally I'd do that and take a bank card Nationwide is the best to use as they don't charge for withdrawing abroad.
