    The Yuan is accepted throughout S.E.Asia at banks & is considered to be a hard currency.
    Cambodia, which has its own weak currency trades a lot internally with Thai Baht & US Dollars has just announced that people will soon be able to spend Chinese Yuan within the country.
    What a nightmare for shops & stores etc!
    Four separate currencies existing side by side!
    How would you keep up with the exchange rates?
