The currency in Bangladesh is the Bangladesh Taka (BDT). There are ATMs in major cities but credit cards are usually only accepted in Dhaka. Banks and large stores will accept travellers cheques. The best exchange rate is found in private shops. Travellers are not allowed to leave with more currency than what they declare on arrival. Banking hours are 9 am to 3 pm, Sunday to Thursday.
