Cash or Plastic - Currency - Europe to Asia?
I hope this is in the right place.
OK, planning a trip next April and have quite a stash already saved. I will be doing Europe, then east via Russia(or south and Iran) and onwards to Pakistan, the Silk Road bits to Singapore.
I was thinking of taking US dollars with me, because the exchange rate is quite good now, but I would have to buy notes and then carry them.
Is this a silly idea, or should I just wait until I travel and carry plastic, like I did in the Americas and just cash out at ATMs.
I will definitely take some dollars, for those 'special' moments, but I was thinking of quite a bit, which is a security risk
For those who have traveled this route, what is needed along the way, any advice would be welcome
Thanks in advance
