changing money in laos

We are taking some US$ cash to Laos and dare organising a Cash Passport as well. Is it OK to load this with $AUS or should it be US $ also? Many thanks. mandah

Hi,

Laos has a non convertable currency so they will take anything hard. The $AUS is pretty hard right now so no problem and you will lose less less than converting to $US. Load with $AUS.

Cheers

I would load with Aussie dollars and then just get local currency when you need it. Saves the fees for changing to two different currencies.

I agree with the others, also easy to change AUD to local currency.
