Where have you be able to find your small denomination pristine currency?

Jump to last reply

Help! I am able to find unblemished, perfect $100 bills to take on my upcoming trip, but am having little luck with my bank being able to find me smaller denominations. It sounds like I will need them, particularly for the zone fees in Bagan, Kakku and Inle Lake, or if I want to buy crafts in the small villages.

I was told US ATMs no longer dispense new bills either, since at this point, I'd be happy with $20s.

What tips do you have for me? How did you carry the money in order to keep it crisp and unbent? I don't want to go through the hassle of carrying a bunch of USD with me, only to be told it's not "clean" enough to be accepted.

Thanks in advance.
