This question is geared specifically for the folks that have recently visited SE Asia (Thailand / Cambodia / Laos) although I'm interested in readings other's views.. We're heading to SE Asia (funnily enough, you've probably guessed that) in 2 weeks and we were wondering what you used for buying goods / getting hold of some cash, etc particularly in areas where cash machines, and / or banks are non-existent such as around the Golden Triangle in Northern Thailand? I don't want to take too much hard cash on our travels as we'll be traveling by whatever transportation is available. I've had good luck using my cash machine card while traveling around South America but not sure about Asia. I've seen TV commercials for the American Express Traveler's Check Card but I don't think they will be widely accepted in the remote areas...Anyone used them? Thanks!
